Inspired by games played in Labrador fishing villages, Upset includes specialty dice, cards, chips, and interactive scorecards that shape play by determining who gets the cards and when. The object of the game is to score points with the dice (10,000 to win) and strategically use the Upset cards to beat your opponent. Players strategize not only on how and when they play their cards, but also how to get or avoid getting the cards. However, the special dice contain letters as well as numbers and if someone rolls the word "Upset," then everyone else, no matter how close they are to winning, must restart from scratch.
