Kill Doctor Lucky
Out Of Stock
A Pre-Mystery Board Game for 3-7 Players
Why do all mystery games start just after all the fun is over?
Welcome to the J. Robert Lucky mansion, a sprawling country estate just ten miles north of nowhere. It's a fine country home, chock full of unusual weapons, good hiding places, and craven killers. Killers like you.
The object? Kill Doctor Lucky. Find a weapon, track the old man down, and do him in. The obstacles? For one thing, all of your friends would rather do it first. For another, Doctor Lucky is aptly named. You would think that after being stabbed, hung, poisoned, and poked in the eye, the Old Doctor would just lie down and accept his fate. But he's got more lives than Rasputin, and an uncanny knack for dodging your best traps.
Stick to it. Persevere. The Doctor's luck won't last forever. Before the night is over, someone is going to kill Doctor Lucky.
Kill Doctor Lucky is a board game about all the fun that happens before the detective arrives. Everyone starts out with a motive to kill Doctor Lucky, and whoever can find the means and the opportunity will get the first chance to kill him.
Actually, everyone gets the chance to kill him eventually. He's a lucky old guy, and the chances are good that most attempts on his life are going to fail.
The trick is to wear down his resistance with careful strategy, good bluffing, and plenty of luck. The Doctor's good fortune is bound to run out eventually, and you just have to be ready when it does.
The "Director's Cut" comes with a host of new variants, a commentary track by the author, facelifted Failure cards, and a new alternate Lucky Mansion printed on the back of the regular board. It's everything it's always been, and more!
You need: A Pawn for every player; plus one master Pawn.
Designed by James Ernest.
