What is This?

The Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game (DFCO) is a tense, strategic co-op card game based on Jim Butcher's NYT bestselling novels. This is the home of the electronic edition of DFCO, developed by Hidden Achievement, for computers and mobile devices. If you came here looking for the tabletop edition, you can find out more at the official DFCO page at Evil Hat Productions.

About the Game

In the Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game, players take on the roles of Harry Dresden and his friends, teaming up to solve cases from the Dresden Files novels.

Each player plays a character from the novels (one of them is always Harry), taking on a shuffled scenario deck based on one of the books in the series. Using a combination of cards, dice, and teamwork, players attack foes, investigate cases, take advantages, and overcome obstacles to make sure they have the best possible odds for a win in the final showdown at the end of the book! Like any good cooperative game, it's hard to win (no fun if there's no challenge!), but always rewarding to play, and scales smoothly from one to five players.

Play Modes

  1. Solitaire — Play three player-decks by yourself. Follows the special 1-Player Rules from the tabletop game.
  2. Hotseat (Pass-and-Play) — 2-5 players take turns playing on the same device.
  3. LAN Multiplayer — 2-5 players play over a local network.
  4. Direct Connect Multiplayer — 2-5 players play over a direct connection to a host machine, using the host's IP address and port.
  5. Online Multiplayer — Players connect to our servers to play with others.

Two-player games use the special 2-Player Rules from the tabletop game. (Each player plays two characters!)

I was a Kickstarter backer for the tabletop game. Are there goodies for me?

Yes, absolutely! As promised by Evil Hat, any backer who buys the app will get free access to all of the expansion packs and variant cards that were directly unlocked by the Kickstarter stretch goals. To take advantage of this opportunity, you will need to register at our account website, and activate the unlock key you received from Evil Hat. If you missed the mail with your key, you should be able to find it in your BackerKit account. There are more detailed instructions here.

See the Where to Get the Game section, above, for platforms.

Will the game be localized to any other languages?

The game is already available in English, German, Russian, and French. Any further localization will depend on sales.

Where can I meet new people to play with?

We're hoping folks start popping by our Discord server for this. We've got channels ready to go for you!

I have an idea for a feature!

Drop by our Discord and tell us about it! We keep a customer wishlist in our issue tracker, so we don't lose track of your suggestions. We can't promise we'll get to every item people want, but we're definitely listening.

I found a bug!

The best way to report bugs is through the in-app bug reporting system. If it's a gameplay bug, the best thing to do is report it right away, from the gear menu (or hit Esc on Win/Mac), and select "Report a Bug." This will include a save-game of your current game state, so we can see what the board looked like.

If it's in another part of the application, you can go from the Start Menu to the Options section, and hit the right-arrow, until you reach the Other page. From there, you can click on Submit a Bug Report.

If you want to provide more involved feedback, you can enter a ticket directly in our bug tracker. Bugs are very high priority, so we'd love to hear about whatever you've found!


Feel free to come by our Discord, and we'll try to troubleshoot your problem. You can also contact, if you would prefer to communicate by email.
