Weekly Challenge #2: To go ...Back...To the Future.
Recently we played #Back to the Future: Back in Time. We were delightfully suprised at how challenging and fun this game was. If you like Back to the Future this game nails it. From the minature Delorean to the picture of Marty and his family that slowly fades over time if you fail to get Marty's parents to fall in love, to the Tales from Space rulebook and all the clever items that you pick up along the way, this game just gets what it is to be in Back to the Future. I should say this is a coop for up to 4 people. We played with 3 and had no isssues. The game scales for different player counts using 2 different time tracks. The best part for us was simply that the game was actually pretty challenging. It took us three games to get our first win and we just squeeked it out. The game concept is pretty simple. Get the Delorian and the parts you need to replair it to Doc's shop and then to the clock tower and make sure that George and Lorraine are in love...and if you are there at preciscly 10:04pm on November 12th, 1955 you will go Back to the Future...and win the game. We had a ton of fun playing this. Think you might as well if you love the movie as much as we do. I included a link to pics we took of the game.
Marty McFly: Hey, Doc. You'd better back up, we don't have enough road to get up to 88.
Dr. Emmett Brown: Roads? Where we going we don't need roads.
