Precarious Position (or The Getaway Gang)
A downloadable game
You knew it would happen. You pulled it off, but now they’re coming for you. You’re all in this together: driver, passengers, the guns haphazardly strewn about the car interior, the item in the trunk.
Your pursuers will fall like dominoes, but only if you get ‘em in the right order. Don’t stress, but don’t hesitate; time’s limited. Good luck, and seeya when you arrive!
The Getaway is a social programming game in which 2-4 players must collaborate to fend off a field of cars, trucks and motorcycles bent on preventing their escape. The board is an array of vehicles surrounding the players’ car. Every two minutes each player must choose 3 cards: their order number, a weapon or action, and a direction. After the timer goes off, each player acts, and as vehicles take damage or try to avoid taking damage, the vehicles all get pushed around in chaotic ways. Too much damage coming back at the getaway car and the players are caught!
Very simple rules, but fun with lots of chaotic sequences, as players screw up their order, or drive or shoot in the wrong direction.
Survive unique rivals, special moments like drawbridges and spike strips, take out boss vehicles (perhaps a helicopter or a tank) and make your Getaway!
Deep in the testing phase! The game's fun now!
