Product Description

antidote game box


In Antidote, you are a laboratory scientist working for a giant chemical research conglomerate. When you and your lab are suddenly exposed to a deadly toxin, you must work quickly to share your research and discover the Antidote before it’s too late!

In the game, players take turns deciding what action all other players take: either discard from their hand or trade research with other players. Eventually all your cards will run-out and you will be left with just one that you must “drink” and hope its the Antidote. If this card is the true Antidote, you’re cured and live! If not…you die, but you can always try again!

  1. :

    I’ve played the printable preview a few times with 2, 4, and 5 players and it was fantastic every time. A large part of the game is pure deduction, trying to determine which X cards the others have seen by the discards and trades they make. Each round only last 5-15 minutes and the game is extremely replayable.

    Have just played one round of this game at a monthly Games Day that we have amongst my friends. I had never heard of it before but really enjoyed the game. We had six players – only one of which had played before and we all picked it up quickly and all enjoyed it. I came to this website because I wanted to order my own copy only to find it’s out of stock. I will wait for it though because the playability of this game is wonderful.

      Janine: Thanks so much for the comment! We’re glad you enjoyed Antidote and hope you’re able to get a copy soon. We will be out of stock here at Bellwether Games until such a time as we are able to complete a second printing, however, that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get a copy of Antidote. Here are a few online places you can order one today: Miniature Market, Funagain Games.

      Also, the official launch date of Antidote into retail stores is April 20. So, stop by a local game store or head over to Barnes and Noble or Target to ask if they carry Antidote.

      Or, if you prefer, sign-up for our newsletter and we’ll let you know when we’ve planned a second printing!

    As I am in New Zealand I didn’t have the option of popping into a local store so I bought two copies online – one a gift for a friend. I’ve played it another ~20 times in the last month and now have a group with enough experience/knowledge of the game to venture into using the expansions. Looking forward to a lot of future fun with this and have backed Swamped because I am sure it will be just as awesome.
