Some people work well in groups. Those types of people will probably do well in Team Play, a cooperative card game coming from WizKids (licensed from Schmidt Spiele). Players will be looking to complete objectives and score points faster than the other teams. However, you can’t just communicate directly with your opponent. You’ve gotta get creative with it. Those with ESP and mind-reading will probably do really well at the game.
From the announcement:
WizKids is excited to announce the cooperative card game, Team Play! Licensed from Schmidt Spiele, you and your partner work together to complete your mission cards and earn points before the other team. These missions are various combinations of numbers and/or colors, such as 2 pairs of uneven numbers, or having 3 low numbers, or 5 consecutive red numbers, etc.
Unable to directly say what your goals are, you and your teammate must be able to read each other’s needs, helping to accomplish missions by passing crucial cards. The other team(s) are also trying to accomplish missions, so you must work smart and fast in order to score the most points. You are hard pressed to do this on your own, so team work is the key to winning!
Think you and a friend have what it takes to work together and fulfill the various missions? Or are you looking for an easy “pick up and play” party game? OR BOTH!
Preorder Team Play from your FLGS today for $19.99, and get ready for cooperative fun! Available at your Friendly Local Game Store January 2018.
