Time Jockeys Card Game
Ever wondered what would happen if time machines became a reality? Well, in Time Jockeys, you’ll find out! The game was the brainchild of designer Sean Scott Garrity and was published by Baksha Games. The game development was funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign.
The theme of the game is about time travelling. The Titor Corporation has invented the first ever time machines and your job as a player is to work as a time jockey for them. Your tasks would involve going back in time and bringing back items and videos that are now worth a lot of money. Your ultimate goal is to fulfil your contracts and make as much money as you can while trying to stay alive.
The game requires a combination of strategy and luck, which makes it perfect for those who are looking for something slightly different. The spice of the game comes from the facts that players have to constantly readjust their strategies based on the contracts. These contracts are historical-based and include such fun things as audio capturing of Alexander Bell’s first telephone call or collecting 100 dodo birds before they go extinct. So if you are a history fan, this game is just more fun for you! But make sure to be back before fifteen days, or you are dead! The player who made the most amount of money at the end of the game is the winner.
Time Jockeys can be played between 2 to 6 people and lasts about 30 minutes per game. The game was only recently published in 2016 and is already proving to be immensely popular. It is a great warm-up game for a gaming event and is suitable for the entire family. If time travelling, history, and gaming are your things, then you just can’t go wrong with Time Jockeys.
