Bicycle Games is featuring the release of Emergency Broadcast at Gen Con this week. In the game, players will look to accomplish their individual objectives in the midst of a flood. The game is for two to four players, ages 10+, plays in 20 to 45 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $24.95.
About the game:
In Emergency Broadcast, players act as first responders on a mission to secure resources for the residents of their community. Over three rounds, floodwaters rise becoming more treacherous and leaving less available land and resources. The winner is the player who best meets their rescue objectives and earns the most points after three stormy rounds.
Each round, players are dealt three objective cards, of which they must choose two objectives they wish to work toward during the round.
- LAY A TILE – lay a resource tile on the board.
- EXCHANGE A TILE – If desired, you may exchange a tile from your hand for a new tile.
- SCORE AN OBJECTIVE CARD – If you choose, you may score one of your two objective cards.
- MOVE THE FIRST RESPONDER MEEPLE – place the first responder meeple on top of the tile just played. This prevents the next player from immediately sabotaging your resources.
