Blacklist Games is made up of a small group of passionate gamers and initially began as an overseas 3D modeling and printing company.
With our resources and innovation, our goal is to create games that are not only exciting, but also unique, thematic and engaging.
In 2016, we acquired the rights to Martial Arts: The Card Game. Then, in 2017, we ran a successful Kickstarter campaign for Street Masters, a fully-cooperative game of martial arts action designed by Adam and Brady Sadler. The game was delivered in 2018, introducing the world to the Modular Deck System (MDS) and receiving universal praise from gamers and critics alike. Our follow-up game, Brook City, a fully-cooperative game of blockbuster cop action, ran a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2018 and was delivered to backers the following year, providing a fresh gameplay experience that truly showcased the versatility of the MDS. We have gone on to run numerous successful Kickstarter campaigns for new titles since then, and our mission is to continue to deliver outstanding games!
Currently, we are working on new titles, as well as on additional content for our existing titles, while also collaborating with different publishers on exciting new projects.
Blacklist Games is based out of Los Angeles, California.
SENIOR GAME DESIGNER
Adam and Brady Sadler have been designing and developing board games professionally for nearly 10 years. They began their careers at Fantasy Flight Games, where they worked on game lines such as Descent: Journeys in the Dark – Second Edition, X-Wing, Mansions of Madness, and Gears of War. After leaving FFG to become freelance designers, they released their first major co-design with Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game, to much acclaim. Since then, the twins have designed such titles as Heroes of Terrinoth, The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary, and Blacklist Games’ own Street Masters and Brook City. Blacklist Games is now the official home for the majority of their original designs.
In addition to designing games, the brothers also enjoy arguing with each other and watching the hit late-90s sitcom Friends.
