Board game rules

page 1, game setup



Place the Time Piece (hour glass) just in front of the first season of the Time Track (Year 1 season symbols). The Time Piece marks the current season. Place the money in the bank. Shuffle and place the Jump cards and Special "Events" Circumstance cards on their spots on the board. Three players get to go through their player decks and pull a few LD cards (marked with LD in the lower left) and lay them down face up. 1. Franco gets his three TV ad LD cards (FF45, FF46, FF47). 2. The Girlfriend gets to have "My Kid" (GF02) and "Franco's wallet" (GF04). 3. The Doctor gets to have his "Over billing others" (DR03). Then each player shuffles the rest of their player deck and place in front of them. Last, each player gets to draw one of his/her Player Cards. Franco gets $4,000 and 1 glory. Any Betting Spectator players get $2,500. Cover ALL vehicle upgrades (yellowish vehicle parts) with a damage token which designates them as incomplete. Next setup step, choose a game difficulty. Game Difficulty EASY Set up: Franco gets an additional $2,000 and 1 random injury. End game: If Franco has 4 or more injuries to any arm or leg, or has a total of 9 or more injuries, then he is forced into retirement. If Franco has 4 or more injuries to his head or torso then, sadly, he dies. MEDIUM Set up: Franco gets an additional $1,000 and 2 random injuries. Give each vehicle 1 random damage. End game: If Franco has 3 or more injuries to any arm or leg, or has a total of 8 or more injuries, then he is forced into retirement. If Franco has 3 or more injuries to his head or torso then he dies. HARD Set up: Franco gets 3 random injuries. Give each vehicle 2 random damage. The Girlfriend schedules a jump NOW before the game starts. End game: If Franco has 3 or more injuries to any arm or leg, or has a total of 7 or more injuries, then he is forced into retirement. If Franco has 3 or more injuries to his head or torso then he dies. Finally, after choosing a game difficulty, move the time cursor into the first season, Fall (the leaf) in Year 1 and begin the turn/season.
