My family loves board games! We love to have a good variety of games in the cupboard for those cold stormy nights here on the Oregon coast. In our house we have a great mix of kids and adults board games, Smirk & Dagger games are more geared towards teenagers and adults. They have an awesome assortment of games that are very fun and different from the “norm.”
Get to your rig – this is gonna be one helluva shift. Be quick to sustain and stabilize patients and rush them to the hospital. Manage your resources and upgrade your ambulance to save as many lives as possible. You only have seconds to act and the clock is against you. Try not to lose anyone today, rookie. “Rescue squad – confirm and depart.”
This is a pulse-pounding, high-tension, timed game of saving lives – and you probably won’t be able to save them all. The FREE companion app timer limits player turns to 60 seconds and later dwindles to just 45 or 30 seconds as players race to triage new patients, purchase medical supplies, treat their medical needs and transport them to the hospital for victory points. Critical patients add to the drama, as they must be treated and sent to the hospital immediately or they head to the morgue instead… counting against your score.
Paramedics: CLEAR! is an intense, competitive game for 1-4 players and will appeal to gamers who enjoy fast-paced, timed games. While not strictly the backstabby game Smirk & Dagger is known for, experienced players will find opportunities to turn up the heat on their opponents as they manage the clock more expertly.
This game is FUN! We love to play this with a group of adult family members gathered around a table. Its fast paced, heart pounding and gets your adrenaline flowing. We love to grab this game and play it any chance we get!
You can pack a lot of fun into a small box, especially when you pack it full of microbe meeples. I’ll say it again. Meeple Microbes (squeeee!)
In this nasty little 2-5 player game, your boss, Dr. Lillian Johannae has made a groundbreaking discovery in the field of microbiology. She has discovered a new breed of extremely unstable, highly volatile microorganisms, BIOTIX™ (patent pending and pronounced ‘biotics’) that can uneasily coexist within a small system. But science can be a brutally competitive field. What began as an innocent pursuit of discovery has quickly devolved into self-centered posturing and ruthless backstabbing among her lab personnel, all vying to have their name attached to the research paper, thereby rocketing you into scientific superstardom.
Your mission, carefully grow the largest culture of BIOTIX you can in your petri dish – and sabotage the work of others by pushing their microbe populations above their limit, causing them to explode and bio-react in all sorts of fun ways.
Game play is simple: on your turn, draw two BIOTIX from the specimen bag and place them, one at a time, either into your own dish for points or into an opponent’s dish to try and force a bio-reaction to destroy their work. Each of the five BIOTIX species has a different trigger number and a unique bio-reaction when they ‘go off’. The BIOTIX are in a constant state of flux throughout the game, as is your score, because at the end of the day you gain points for the BIOTIX remaining in your dish, with the most volatile BIOTIX being worth the most points.
This is another very fun game, I love the fast paced games. These games would make great gifts for any of your emergency loving family members or friends and while you’re at it you should pick up a copy for yourself!
