how to play batman: gotham city chronicles
Each player is going to start with 10 coins from 5 different currency's (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, Peercoin). And these coins are in your pocket, waiting to be used. How? Well you'll be paying these coins to the other players to allow you to preform actions. As well as exchanging them, using the "Currency Exchange Ring" to get more coins, or the coins you need, from the other players. Eventually, banking these coins in a deep dark place that no one can touch. Your "Cold Storage." When you have 10 of each currency there, you'll win the game.
Game play comes from a deck of cards. On a players turn, they will be drawing up to the hand size on 5 cards. Once this is done, they have the chance to pay to activate a server card that they have played on a previous turn. This is a choice that the player will have to weigh up, due to the fact that, to pay for the activation, you need to give these coins to another player. Choosing the correct currency to give them, that will be easy to get back or not benefit them will have you double guessing yourself. And in doing so, you will then have permanent actions you can preform every round...But ONLY if you pay.
Then comes the players action phase. This is not just an action phase for the active player, but also for the other players too. The can "Hack." More on this later.
A players actions phase allows them to play one "Block" cards and one "Server" card from their hand. A "Server" card has no effect on this round as it needs to be payed for to activate. So you just place it, threateningly in front of yourself. Waiting for the moment you possibly activate it at the start of your next turn. A "Block" card has the same type of actions marked on it, but unlike the an inactivated "Server," you can use it now. They can let you draw more cards into your hand, trade coins with other players, play extra "Block" cards and most importantly, store your money into that deep dark place.
Trading is an important action to preform. Using the "Currency Exchange Ring," you'll be able to git another player a Bitcoin, which in turn will make them give you five Dash coins. Total against their will and with a saddened face, they give away their pocket money so you may use it. Having more coins in your wallet gives you more possibility's but also makes you a target for the other players.
Now, you may not want to give large amounts of coins away to other players. Nor let them transfer the coins in the pocket to the safe zone, where they could win the game. This is were the "Hack" cards come in. These "take that" cards will block transfers, smash other players "Servers" and change the exchange rates of the currency's. Anyone can play these cards on any players action phase. Throwing chaos into your well calculated plans, destroying the chance to win on this turn. Just like in real life...
...Your saving up for that new bathroom and then, while shopping, someone crashes their car into yours. Meaning you now have to buy a new car, pushing that dream bathroom back a year...sigh!

Did you ever see the day that you control an evil, money inspired corporation? Well that day is here. The game will have you exploring an unknown planet MYC.14.250, only to discover that not only is the oil, steel and a rare metal that could possibly used in the creation of a certain super human's shield. But also this is home to a strange fungi, that when eaten cures you of what ever ails you. And without side effects.
Earthquake. Tornado's. Even eruptions bust from the now fragile ground. Taking the lives of your science team and shattering your buildings to dust.
You thought Catan was a nasty game. This is the nasty of the nasty. You are going to need a strong head and a steel will to get through this game. And when the planet finally concaves. Be the one to walk away from the table with your pockets filled with money and the pride of building the biggest empire on that rock that was called MYC.14.250
Yes, you don't actually own the Museum, your working for your patron, who donates a lot of money. So therefore, they want the displays to be centered around their loves of history. That doesn't mean that you can't put whatever you want or sometime, whatever you can get your hands on. But it does help if you can please them too.
Paying to get these precious items into glass cabinets is an expensive affair. You will have to place another magnificent item or items into a storage to be able to place the object you want on display. No historical object is lost as you can dig them out of storage later, as can the other players. They may have eyes on that "Arc of the Covenant." Or you could sacrifice some of your hard earned prestige to help with the cost.
Here are some of the 180 objects that can be found.
Many drawn by Vincent Dutrait
This is a game that fits the family of game like Ticket To Ride and New York 1901, with it's ease of entry and simple set collection idea. Not to say that this game IS easy to play and win, there is an intriguing system that will keep your brain ticking over, even when it's not your turn. You'll be constantly tempted to take items from around the world, even when it's not your turn. But you'll be helping the active player!
The game is lavishly coloured and full of historical details that do not distract from the simple consents and game play. With many ways to snatch the victory away from another player, this is a game with bucket load of replay-ability. Especially for those of us that like revenge...
"You stole my Tower of Hercules!"
Indy, Henry, follow me. I know the way...Har!
If you want to be a mathematician or computer programmer or record breaker...ohhh!
(see Roy Castle and Record Breakers for reference)
Players are going to be drawing cards every turn and adding them to their docked ships. These cards will be "action" cards, that will do damage to a target ship. In one's, two's and three's..."That's not a lot of damage", you say.
That's where the "control" cards come into play. These can also be loaded onto the ships to increase your attack. They will either multiply the "action" cards, give conditions for the use of the "action" cards or set a programmed pattern en route for the "action" cards. These will give different attacks to your enemies, hopefully eliminating them. Making you the soul survivor, winning the game.
Or you could collect all 7 of the Potato Kings, also winning you the game. Every time you have a King in you hand, you place it in front of you. The other players have to show their respects and salute you. Being the slowest to do so will cost you two of you potato crew, as they defect to the side of the Potato King. Kings can be found, stolen and collected throughout the game.

HOW WAS THE WEST WON...?
Well it wasn't by drawing fastest or by scaring the the tribesmen away. It was done at a table, with two players and box of cardboard.
Everyone is trying to get their Governor to be elected...well, as Governor of a small western town, where cowboys wear hats and dead men wear no plaid. If you successfully get more votes than the other player, you win the game...Simple, eh!
But each player also has a, so crooked, he could swallow nails and spit out corkscrews, Hitmam who can take out that pretty dressed, ladies man. If he can find him, that is. And when the hit is done, and your Governor the only one in town, you'll win.
...Unless, the Sheriff finds this critter and arrests him.
So, we have a back and forth, two player game that plays quicker than a man could eat his hat. With three different ways to win.
Also I was chatting with Jamie Johnson of Holy Grail Games, "live" on Burky & Badger's Board Game Babble. Watch and get some insider details.
