The Great Brain Robbery Box Set
From the Publisher...
Elements: 8 board game sections, 60 card, rules
You Need: Pawns for every player, about 50 counters, and two six-sided dice.
It is a dark time for Friedey's, the Fast Food Restaurant of the Damned.
For one thing, the Zombies don't even have one Brain to pass around.
For another, the Cowabunga Conga hasn't been invented yet, and the closest thing to "fast food" is a speeding passenger train full of free Government Cheese.
But any train full of passengers is also a train full of Brains. And you're almost positive that Brains are what you need.
So saddle up and rob that train. If you're lucky, you may even come home smart.
Game Synopsis: This is the fourth game in the Friedey's series, and the first Cheapass board game to come in a sturdy cardboard box. You and your friends are robbing a train full of Brains in the Old West, fighting to take home the best one. The "Board" is composed of eight double-side Train Cars, and the Train grows and shrinks throughout the game. New cars appear in the front as players move forward, and old cars fall off the back, well, sort of randomly. To win the game, you need to find the Brain with the highest IQ before the Train comes to a stop, and defend it from all the other Zombies who'd rather beat you up than find a better Brain on their own. A splendid adventure for 3-7 players, illustrated as always by loveable Zombie artist Brian Snoddy.
Awards: The Great Brain Robbery won a prestigious Origins award: Best Science Fiction or Fantasy Board Game of 2000. It was also nominated for Best Graphic Presentation of a Board Game of 2000. Way to go, Zombies!
