Sparkworks and Tabletop Tycoon have teamed to bring you the Healthy Heart Hospital Third Edition. This reimagining of the Victory Point Games title (see my review of that right here) drops players into the roles of hospital staff trying to save a floundering health care facility. The third edition of Healthy Heart Hospital is for one to five players, ages 14+, plays in around 45 minutes, and carries an MSRP of $50.00.
About the game:
Do you have what it takes to save the hospital?
People are grumbling about the quality of their health care, but they still show up at Healthy Heart Hospital hoping they made a smart decision. Much has been said about the previous administration’s haphazard management of Healthy Heart. In an effort to save the hospital, you and your allies among its leading physicians have staged a “Clinical Coup” and taken over the hospital to restore its prestige. However, actually managing things from the inside is never as easy as it appears from the outside, and juggling the responsibilities at Healthy Heart Hospital can quickly turn even the noblest healer into a money-grubbing pragmatist cynically looking for a place to hide the victims of your “care”.
Does your team have what it takes to bring Healthy Heart Hospital back to its former glory without becoming Hard-Hearted in the process?
New in this edition are updated artwork, a reduced number of components, and streamlined rules. Components can be stored in a new Hospital bag! Right at the beginning of the game, you give yourself a room and add a room each round. The Ambulance cards have been removed as well.
Your main goals are to not go broke or to run out of places to hide bodies!
