It's a mad dash to the the finish as players attempt to get rid of all their cards before their opponents do. Look out for the Boom, Drop, Limbo and Ninja cards. They are sure to put a kink in your strategy. Be sure to not be the one who has to pick up the whole discard pile!

Dig Dig is a great card game for just about any age. Card games that are quick to learn but fun to play are more challenging to create than you'd think, yet Dig Dig did it well. Check out the fun game, the great art work and the fun memories you'll have with Dig Dig. Grab your copy today!

Board Game Capital's Review (2019-07-17):
Dig Dig CardsWhen we first saw the art work for Dig Dig, we saw the worms on card #1. We were instantly flashed back to our childhood of playing Worms on our old computers at home. While this game has nothing to do with that game, worms do play a fun part of this game's graphics. We loved how each card looked. The funny little banter between the worms cracked us up. There are vibrant colors and excellent themed artwork throughout - huge thumbs up for this.

This attention to detail made the rule pamphlet seem very professionally done. Great pictures, examples and the rules are very well written and easy to understand. The rules are small and fit nicely inside the box. Game quality is excellent - nice glossy and textured cards. A few things are slated to change from the review copy we received but we have full confidence they will be nothing but the best.

Dig Dig CardsYou won't find too many ground breaking game mechanics in this game which is very admirable. Don't take that the wrong way. It's a fun and simple game. We have seen other card games that are VERY similar to this one. They use the three cards down, three cards up and cards in your hand tactic. We have mixed feelings about this. Seems like whatever happens prior to entering your last six cards is kind of useless and doesn't gain you much. You are ultimately left with the luck of whatever those last three cards are. It does make for a fun and interesting finish though.

The "must play a higher card" rule is common amongst other games as well. Where Dig Dig separates itself a bit is with the action cards that are pretty fun to use. A few other rule twists make this game unique and a blast to play with friends. Multiple decks could probably be purchased which would help to include more than four people.

We really enjoyed playing and looking at the game Dig Dig. It's an all around fun game to pull out when you have a few minutes or want to play a quick game with friends or family (excellent for younger audiences also). You won't regret getting this game.
