In Last-Second Quest, you and your opponents are adventurers in a rush! With a gridded board representing your backpack and a big pile of random items, you have only seconds to pack as many items as you can!
Each round, you get a new quest with a unique set of required and forbidden items. Pack the required items and avoid the forbidden ones! Once everyone is packed, take turns defending your choice of items, then score based on how well you prepared, and how few empty spaces are left over. The best prepared adventurer wins!
I love polyominoes in general. This has a mix of speed to collect and a bit of story-telling to prove what you collected was worthy enough. Very light game so could be a good filler.
Players sort through a pile of double-sided pentominos looking to fill one's own grid while certain images score points while other penalize you for using them. What is legal and illegal to open to interpretation to the players. No the sort of thing I would play again.
Decent speed game where you pack your satchel to go on a fantasy adventure, avoiding forbidden items and trying to cash in on bonus items. One thing I like about this is striking the balance between just filling your pack quickly while also finding the bonus items, however I feel like the speed part of the game is not rewarded enough. Someone could take their sweet time and still beat you due to bonus items.
