April 14, 1912. A cold night in the Atlantic. An errant iceberg, a titanic cruise ship, and one very lucky old man. Doctor Lucky is a charismatic and well-repected philanthropist in this many-years-before prequel to Kill Doctor Lucky. Of course, you secretly hate the old bastard, and you can't wait to kill him someday. But killing him aboard a sinking ship would be pointless, especially when you're probably about to die. So you've decided to save his life instead, and do it while somebody else is looking. That way, even if you go down with the ship, you'll at least go down in history. Isn't that what life is all about? Game Synopsis: Everyone wants to save Doctor Lucky. Players move around the ship looking for helpful items and trying to save the old man while someone else is looking. Trying to save Doctor Lucky is pretty easy, but just like in the last game, every other player can play Failure cards to stop you. And don't take too long. If the ship sinks, everybody loses! Save Doctor Lucky is a quirky twist on the original game with clever illustrations and a sinking ship for a board. Illustrated by Damon Brown. If you've played Kill Doctor Lucky, the original Cheapass Game, you're already familiar with most of the mechanics of this game. But be warned: there are subtle changes that make all the difference. What's more, there's an extra set of penalty rules just for you! Awards: Listed in Games Magazine's Games 100 for 2001. It also won a GAMA award from Games Unplugged Magazine for Coolest Game Mechanic, 2001

Second Edition Players: 2-8 Playing Time: 1 hour Elements: Game Board, Rulebook. You Need: Pawns for every player, two 6-sided Dice, Counters. Prehistory: hot, primordial, dull. You've been dominating the earth for longer than you can remember. Of course, with a brain the size of a walnut, you've also been standing there for longer than you can remember. Nevertheless, you're completely positive that it's been 10 million years since anything interesting has happened. So you decide to cajole your buddies into running a suicide race across Skull Island. The winner is the first to hurl himself into the big volcano in he middle. The losers are everyone who got their heads bitten off along the way. Like we said, it's been hot and dull. Game Synopsis: Everyone starts at the lowest point on the island, and races around to the top. There are mud pits to slow you down, a big gap to jump over, and lots of rocks to pick up along the way. You can spend your rocks to roll again, or you can throw them at other players to knock them off the track. When you land on another dinosaur, you get to bite off their head. The board is dino-huge!

Cheapass Games - The very clever pipe game

Players: 2-4 Playing Time: 30 Minutes You Need: A score pad The Very Clever Pipe Game is another in a series of abstract strategy games from James Ernest and Hip Pocket Games. It was originally published as a 120-card envelope game in 1997, and returns now in a more compact and affordable form. The Very Clever Pipe Game is unlike any pipe game you've seen before. We promise! In the basic game, each player has a different color of Pipes (either Black or White) and is trying to construct closed sets of his own. When you complete a set, you take those cards off the table, and whoever takes the most cards wins. The rules of the game allow you to play cards anywhere on the table, even unconnected to the existing layout, as long as they conform to the existing grid. There are special rules for half-card sized holes (called Pillars) and for deciding who takes the cards when two sets form at once. Once you have played the basic Pipe Game, you can move on to version two: Fields. Every card has light and dark Fields which run behind the Pipes. In the Fields game you are building the board by the same rules, but instead of picking up Pipe sets, you pick up Fields of your own color that are completely surrounded by Fields of the opposite color. In version 3, which is playable by up to 4 players, each player has either a Pipe color or a Field color, and each is trying to pick up sets of his own color. You can also play either of the two basic games with 4 players, by forming two teams of 2. The Very Clever Pipe Game has 48 cards, including several cards that were not in the original edition. The deck is better balanced for Pipes vs. Fields than the original game, and there is also a slight tweak to the starting rules (players draw starting hands of 9 cards and discard 4). What's more, the artwork has been updated to reflect the sensibilities of the new millennium. Okay, not really. We just made the borders white instead of black.

Players: 2-5 Playing Time: 30 Min Elements: 48 Cards, Rules. You Need: About 20 distinct counters for each player and a way to keep score. In the year 2185, in the steam-driven titanium mine deep under the surface of Io,.... oh, who are we kidding. Steam Tunnel is a great game with no particular basis in reality. Compete for control of tunnels in an abstract game with a perfect mix of strategy and luck. Game Synopsis: Steam Tunnel is played on a grid of 36 cards. Players take turns flipping up facedown cards, then placing stones to try to control sets of tunnels. When a tunnel closes, the player with the most stones scores it, based on its length and the point value of its end caps. Some tunnels fork, some tunnels lead nowhere, but a masterful plan will always get you pretty close to winning. Another neo-classic Hip Pocket strategy game by the unstoppable James Ernest.

Light Speed is a lightning-fast card game of space combat about identical teams of spaceships dropping out of hyperspace to do battle over an extremely important asteroid.

You Need: For 2 Player Games: About 30 counters in two different colors. For 3 or 4 Players: About 15 distinct counters for each player (blue, green, purple and red) and an additional 15 counters in a fifth color. Players: 2 - 4 Duration: 10 - 15 (minutes)

Cheapass Games - Safari Jack remix

Elements: Cards, Rulebook. You Need: 1 Pawn for every player and 10 counters per player. Travel to distant lands, meet exotic animals, and kill them. That’s the basis of this simple little tile game, in which both players must build a map and then race to score the point cards. Safari Jack was originally released as a black-and-white Cheapass Game, but the lack of color made it less than appealing. Now re-worked in a color form, Safari Jack looks good and plays even better. If you would like to play Safari Jack with more than two players, there really aren’t enough cards in just one deck. That’s why it's only listed as a 2-player game, if you’d like to include up to 4 players you can do it by adding a second deck. Players: 2 Duration: 30 (minutes)

Players: 2-5 Playing Time: 30 minutes Elements: Cards, Rulebook. You Need: 1 Pawn for every player, about 30 counters in each of 4 colors, and a way to keep score. Congratulations! You’ve invented a time machine. You will use it one day to learn about the rich history of the planet and perhaps even contribute to the betterment of Mankind. But first, you’re gonna play the stock market and get really, stupidly rich. Timeline starts with a row of cards depicting crisscrossing paths, which represent the values of commodities. By connecting a starting point, which never moves, to a “market” at the other end of the board, the lines connect four commodities to four values. As time changes, these values change. And they change a lot. During the game, players will travel through time picking up miscellaneous commodities, then going to the markets at the end of the line trying to get the most value for their goods. The deck contains 48 cards in the familiar abstract Hip Pocket style, and you’ll need a Pawn for each player as well as about 30 colored stones in each of four colors. With very little randomness, Timeline is an intense and engaging strategy game that, for what it’s worth, models aspects of time travel better than it has any right to.
