Kill Dr. Lucky

In this notorious game, an inversion of Clue, you hate Doctor Lucky. Maybe he left you out of his will. Maybe he killed your pet rock. Whatever the reason, you want him dead. Unfortunately, so do the other players. Since you don’t want to go to jail, you need to make your attempt in secret; if anybody can see you, whistle nonchalantly, and let the Doctor live … Until next time

The Gameplay:

You will spend your turns moving about Doctor Lucky’s mansion trying to find a corner of the house unseen by the rest of the visitors. There you will lay waiting to strike, attempting or perhaps succeeding at ending Doctor Lucky’s life. On your turn you will move about the board positioning yourself in Doctor Lucky’s pre Programed path and try to kill him. However, your opponents can thwart you by playing interruption cards. If they can save Doctor Lucky, he lives but you learn from your mistakes and become a better killer next time.

The Review:

Kill Doctor Lucky is a great game. I had the privilege of learning it from the game designer James Ernest. He ran us through an awesome play.  I will warn people that this game can be tough for some people as some of the mechanics can cause peoples turns to be skipped.  I really enjoyed it, and my gaming group had a ton of fun while playing it.  I really cannot recomend this one enough! It is a great gateway game as its mechanics are familiar enough to let people who may have never played anything beyond Monopoly or Clue get into a modern game quickly.
