If you’re into espionage board games, you might want to give this project a look. Based on best selling series from Matt Kindt, MIND MGMT: The Psychic Espionage “Game” has launched a Kickstarter campaign.
According to the press release, this board game has been described as “a tense, paranoia-fueled game of deduction and second-guessing from Off the Page Games.”
During this “one vs. many” game, players will act as either a secret organization called the MIND MGMT (Mind Management) to try and find recruits as well as evade capture, or as rogue agents, determined to locate and take MIND MGMT down.
Matt Kindt shared, “I was lucky enough to meet two talented, award-winning board game designers that weren’t just fans of MIND MGMT — they really got it. This isn’t just the definitive board game interpretation of the comics, it’s an interactive story-telling and training device. Proceed at your own risk.”
Matt partnered up with Jay Cormier and Sen-Foong Lim, designers of Junk Art, Belfort and D&D: Rock Paper Wizard to “make his world of espionage and paranoia come alive in a board game.”
“We wanted to pack in as much deduction and teamwork as we could in a game that takes less than an hour to play,” said Sen-Foong Lim.
What great for fans of Matt Kindt and the MIND MGMT comic series is that the new board game will come with more than 80 pages of new MIND MGMT stories. These stories will be written and illustrated by Matt Kindt.
Take note; one mini-comic will come in each of the 10 sealed packages which are part of what Off the Page Games is calling the SHIFT System.
“We’re introducing the SHIFT System where at the end of each game, the side that loses gets to open a package which will give them more components, cards and rules to improve their chances the next time they play,” explained Jay Cormier, co-designer and also the founder of Off the Page Games.
MIND MGMT: The Psychic Espionage “Game” is the first game being published from Off the Page Games. However, Jay Cormier has over a dozen published games including Akrotiri, Godfather: A New Don, and more.

The initial goal was $33,587. As of writing this, the campaign has raised more than $50,000.
The premise dealt with a true-crime writer named Meru searching for the truth behind a mysterious airline flight. Meru gets to know about a secret government agency that has super spies. There are also psychic abilities involved. Of course, there are also those who wish to dismantle the organization.
The fact the current board game will be offering new material for fans to enjoy is very interesting considering the series concluded years ago.
