I would comment that another reviewer seems to not understand the game. I can't understand why, it really isn't a hard game. If you want a good explanation of the rules and more reviews, please go to [...]
For those who aren't familiar with Chrononauts, the point of the game is to change the timeline by changing "linchpin" events -- if Emmett Brown hadn't hit his head on the toilet while changing a clock in 1955, he wouldn't have invented the flux capacitor, for instance. If that hadn't happened, many other events wouldn't have occurred, either, and changing one event causes ripples to go through the timestream, which you can "patch" with alternate histories.
It's a terrific game, highly portable, as durable as any deck of cards, and recommended for anyone who likes time travel, Back To The Future, or both!
The instructions seem confusing at a glance, but I assure you, it's pretty simple to get a hang of. Oh, I wish it came with the pizza rehydrator card. I'm going to feel like my deck is incomplete forever!
When I brought this to Comic Con, I realized I could only play this at lunch due to the space needed for the timeline.
Players are people in the BttF who only exist if a specific timeline is left in place and not able to be changed. Play involved draw and play a card. Played cards can be items, devices and time machines. Players use time machines to fix their timeline and then destroy time travel.
WHAT DID I LIKE ABOUT THE GAME:
I like that winning is surviving, that multiple people can survive, and that time travel isn't easy to destroy. The items, their abilities and the time travel mechanics are just what a die hard fan would want.
WHAT DID I DISLIKE ABOUT THE GAME:
Why am I playing non characters. I'm upset I can't play main characters, but get it. Why can't I play side characters who actually exist in the franchise?
WHO IS THIS GAME DESIGNED FOR?
Die hard fans of BttF or anyone with a love for time travel principles.
6.2 out of 8. Game play is only bolstered by franchise and cards with well loved classic BttF iconic items.
If the instructions are too much for you there are great tutorials on YouTube that further explain this game.
It's a fun gift for your brainy Back to the Future friend of family member!!!
