Gaming Unplugged 3: Perry Rhodan


Intervention Actions, like Technologies, come from your deck and are often the much more aggressive cards. They do things like switching places with a player, switching cargo, delivering passengers, granting another flight/action, etc.

Once your turn is up, you can draw as many cards as your current replenishment value. Then the other player takes their turn. Game ends when 70 points have been achieved.

So that's how it plays, how is my response? On the plus side, it's a cheap two player game which is incredibly rare. Most games have special "two player" rules which equate either to removing pieces from the game entirely or force the players to take turns being a third. The theme is also something nowhere near as exploited as, say, fantasy.

On the minus, it seems like an unfair bitch in all honesty. I don't like how aggressive this game can be sometimes nor do I like how, unless you can snag an extra container or Replenishment token, you will have a long, hard fought battle in this game. Only being able to draw 1 card or haul 1 container is a handicap when your opponent has either of these, let alone both.

All in all, it's a quick 2 player game that might be handy to have around. There's nothing exceptional about this game but then again, it's nothing terrible either. If the theme grabs you, I siggest it. If for nothing else than to have something besides Race for the Galaxy to play in this genre.

I suppose since one of my stories has been promoted, I'm on the spot to get off my lazy ass and describe myself. I'm a 3D modeler working on Flight Simulators by day, a doodlin nerd by night. I try to remain without system biases but let's face it, no one can do that. I do want to apologize for some of my terrible grammar. I'm hoping to correct this issue as time goes on. I want to get better.

As to which games games I'm into, which ones am I not into is a more apt question. I'm a collector with a fairly massive collection. And, maybe as time rolls on, I'll fill more of this out.
