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.
Escape the Office to Save Your Weekend
Escape from Cubeville drops you straight into the Dilbert universe. The game features a complete back-story: it's a Friday afternoon, and the sadistic Pointy-Haired Boss (PHB) is looking for a "volunteer" to work over the weekend. It's up to you to evade the PHB and make your way out of the office in time.
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.

The game can be played by two or four players. Two of us played three games in a row in less than 35 minutes, so it moves quite quickly eliminating the potential for boredom. This is a strategic game of movement. The basic premise involves planning the fastest path out of the cubicle maze. The movement is dictated by drawing from a deck of cards. The cards instruct how to manipulate the game board pieces, how many spaces to move and often contain other special instructions. Many of the cards also include actual Dilbert comic strips to keep the flavor of the character's personalities alive.
The idea is to figure out how to undermine your opponents' progress, and, if at all possible, maneuver the other employees into the path of the boss - the worst of all fates. The first one who escapes the cube maze wins. The game is fast and fun -- and for the price, a great bargain. It would make a terrific gift for fellow office cubicle dwellers - or any game playing family. Even kids unfamiliar with the comic strip will enjoy the game.
I played with only 2 players, and my one complaint was that the board was too big. I may try making it 7x5 next time... But its a steal for this price!
The cartoons are cute, and the strategy of play has promise if you have enough players. For the price I paid, it's not bad to keep on hand for company. But we haven't had a desire to play again since that first somewhat-boring couple of rounds.
The tiles are a little bit of a hassle to set up (as stated in the description), but not bad. It would be better if the game came with a board with corner notches to hold the cube pieces. Then you could just toss the pieces onto the board, shake them into place, and flip over any that have coffee mugs in the wrong place (this will make more sense if you've setup the game). It would be a cheap addition that would make setup easier, rather than having to rotate pieces into the right position and try to scootch them all into alignment.
The game comes with a molded plastic insert to hold the various pieces in the box, which is useful. If it were a little bit bigger grid it would be a decent game. Probably not a couples-time favorite, but fun enough for power failures. If we were quarantined and bored, I'm sure we would play it again as-is when we tired of our favorite games.Read more ›
