Upstage, the BCB card game


Upstage, the Bittersweet Candy Bowl card game!

Upstage is an easy-to-play fast-paced card game where players take turns to set the scene and tell a story.

Each player draws a “script” and takes turns to change up the central “scene” to match the story elements their script requires: 2 characters, a day and a place. As players scheme to set the scene while keeping their intentions hidden, skill, creativity and deceptive wiles are critical to succeed!

Upstage is suitable for 2–6 players, requires no prior knowledge of the BCB comic, and features 94 cards with a ton of unique artwork, in-jokes and references. It’s simple enough for your family and friends, is deep on strategy and most importantly is a lot of fun to play!
