Product Description

Product Description

Android is a board game of murder and conspiracy set in a dystopian future. Detectives travel between the city of New Angeles and moon colony Heinlein chasing down leads, calling favors, and uncovering the sinister conspiracy beneath it all. The detectives must balance their pursuit of the murderer against their personal lives and inner demons.

Android's innovative mechanics ensure that no two detectives play alike. Will you play as Louis Blaine, the crooked cop tormented by guilt and loss? Or will you take the role of Caprice Nisei, the psychic clone who struggles to retain her sanity while proving she's just as human as anyone else?

Whomever you choose to play, you've got just two weeks to solve the murder, uncover the conspiracy, and face your personal demons. Better get moving, detective.

This game can be very entertaining, but it is slow and complex, meaning it won't be for everyone. The biggest problem I have with Android is that it takes so long to play, especially if the people at the table are not experienced gamers; don't be surprised when you convince friends and family who are not serious about gaming to try this and it takes the entire day. Despite enjoying the game, I must confess it sets a slow pace and isn't particularly exciting enough to sustain that many hours of gameplay.

The designers definitely could've cut down the number of components the game ships with, there are just too many tiny cardboard pieces to keep track of. Some of these pieces weren't necessary as there are more intuitive ways of tracking game information, but cardboard pieces were probably the cheapest, so it's not difficult to see why they chose this path.

But frankly, Android has the most fragile game board I've ever played with, the number of small tokens, counters, and trackers that must be in exactly the right place mean the slightest table bump or unchecked arm movement can send pieces flying out of position, which is never a good thing.

Another complaint is that, at least in my experience, the complex interactions and variety of strategies and options are often times wasted as it seems more efficient to pursue the most basic action of collecting evidence instead of performing one of the game's many advanced options (killing a suspect, piecing together the conspiracy, etc).

We've played this game through twice now, and I think I can now say that I enjoy it. The rules are complex, and the first time we tried to play, it took us 3 hours to get HALF WAY through the game before we ran out of time. Once you have a player or two who know the rules, the game will move quite smoothly, the "2nd Week" in the game goes buy very quick, as the options become more limited towards the end. The final outcome is decided by point totals. The 2nd time we played, we finished the entire game in 4 hours, and we're confident that next time it'll be finished in 3 (since we know what we're doing now).

This game is all about Characters. The game is filled with flavor text, stories, NPCs, and character specific events. Do yourself a favor, read them all aloud for everyone to hear. Its obvious the creators put a lot of work into them, and they really solidify the style of the gameplay as your going along. We made it a table rule to always read your cards and character stories for everyone, and we enjoyed the game much more when we did that, and a lot of the characters' strategies and goals became more apparent that way as well.

Note: this game is NOT a game of "Clue, in the future". The game is a noir-character based strategy game, you aren't finding "who done it", its a strategy game about finding more evidence than the other players, and its suggested, though not definitely stated, that you're actually just pinning the crime on someone, not actually solving it... and that makes perfect sense if you allow yourself to be immersed in the game story.

This is a really ambitious and fascinating board game. The sense of place is excellent and there's a ton of flavor.

The problems with it are 1) it's very complex, but in a way that doesn't necessarily fit together as a whole. Sometimes it almost felt like the players were playing their own individual games rather than one together. 2) The storylines for each character are key. But because of the length of the game, and the complexity, most groups are going to plow through the story text to get to the mechanics, and the game really suffers without the flavor of the stories. What's more, there are only a couple stories per character, so it really limits the replay value.

I think gaming groups need to approach this almost as a storytelling/RPG rather than a board game, to get the most out of it, and that requires a very specific and dedicated group of players. The mechanics of the game on their own don't mesh well enough to justify repeated playings without the investment in the story.

So my review will be biased - this is my favorite game. I love this game for it's theme. The feel is excellent and it flows perfectly. There is a element of balance between playing the game to benefit you whilst preventing others from gaining the upper hand.

This game is not for novices. I think the perceived rule complexity stems from the fact that the game is really 3 games in one. Sure, many games feature this meta game aspect but few on the magnitude of Android. When you read the rules, it's hard to grasp how the game functions because the game lays them out but it's hard to tie it all together. I recommend setting up the game yourself, learning the rules and playing it solo (using 2 characters) to get the feel and flow of the game. Then, introduce it to others. They will be MUCH more receptive since once someone has played it and can answer questions and direct game play. For a lot of games, this isn't needed (or required). A group can pull it out and stumble through it and have a halfway decent time. For whatever reason, this doesn't seem to be the case with Android.

I wish they would release additional characters, expansions and ultimately, a RPG. If FFG wanted to capture (or re-capture) some players with this game, they certainly could find ways to simplify it. I didn't see any issues with it. My suggestion - download the rule book from the Fantasy Flight Games website and give it a read. Then, read it again. If you can understand them, buy this game! If you can't understand them, buy this game..then, play through it :)

The game is a rewarding experience not duplicated by any other game out there.
