The Big Lockdown

Inspired by global events and a distinct lack of things to do, The Big Lockdown is an easy-to-learn card game that combines strategy, luck and a love of hand sanitiser.

It is designed to be:

  • Different every time you play.
  • The ideal game for a family to play together.
  • Fun to play with friends of all ages (when not in lockdown).

Hold on to that toilet paper and stock up on snacks… You’ll need them. Can you make it to the end of Lockdown?

The game includes 109 cards split into 3 decks with an additional 4 Location Status Cards. Also included is a leaflet explaining the rules and a whole lot of fun.

There are three decks on the table: Indoors, Outdoors and Supplies.

If you draw an Infection card you may be out of the game.

If you have Infection Prevention you are safe otherwise you must be tested for infection by drawing the next card.

A positive test means you are infected and out of the game.

A negative test means you are not infected and can keep playing.

When more than one player makes it to the end of one of the decks, the player with the most valuable stockpile of supplies is the winner.

The number in the corner shows the value of each Supply.

This Stockpile has a value of 5.


Mess with other players by looting their supplies or forcing them into risky positions.

You can also shop for supplies or defend yourself. 

A lot can happen in each game.
