This hilarious, Dilbert-themed strategy game pits players against each other in a maze of cubicles. View larger.
The game pieces have been modeled after the comic strip's main characters -- Dilbert, Wally, Alice, Asok and the PHB. View larger.
The game begins by randomly arranging the 49 "cubicle" tiles in a 7x7 grid, which forms the maze. Setting up the tiles properly can take a couple of minutes, and can sometimes become a bit tedious. But since the tiles are shuffled and placed randomly, you'll never play through the same maze twice -- each game experience is unique.
Once the cubicle maze has been set up, it's a race to escape the dreariness of office life. Each player selects a starting point and begins navigating their way through the maze, from one side to the other. You move around the board by playing movement cards, which tell you how many spaces you can advance.
Be careful, though: your opponents can play special cards that rotate tiles and throw you off course. This adds an element of strategy to the game. With each turn, you can manipulate the maze to clear your own path or obstruct an opponent's path. You can even deliver them right into the PHB's clutches -- cutthroat corporate competition at its finest.
Classic Dilbert Humor
Escape from Cubeville has been designed to capture the satirical edge of Dilbert. You'll be able to take control of your favorite Dilbert character as you race to escape the office. Whether you're slacking off as Wally or fighting for recognition as Alice, you'll be laughing while playing this game. Each of the movement cards also features a classic Dilbert comic strip, so you can enjoy your favorite strips while playing. Even the game-play itself is appropriately ruthless and corporate. It's a complete Dilbert experience.
What's in the Box
49 cubicle tiles, 60 movement cards, PHB mover, 4 player movers, 4 exit tokens, instruction sheet, and six-sided Dilbert die.

About the only connection the game has to the Dilbert comic strip are the comic strips on the cards that are occasionally drawn. Read morePublished 13 months ago by J. Dempsey
It came fast and is in good shape. Ordered other Delbert things the same day and they took several more weeks to get to us than this did. Read morePublished 19 months ago by shauna liston

Kudos to my cousin Nate Stottrup who invented this game! It's great fun, I actually just got done playing it with some family. It's full of strategy, and easy to learn.Published on May 29, 2010 by shopper48
