Time Stories Gameplay
Time Stories is a more complex game to play so we have provided an overview of what you will be doing throughout this game:
- The chosen time captain will be responsible for reading the first card.
- Explore the location by moving your markers to the space of your choice. If one agent decides to enter a location, all other players must do as well.
- The marks found on the back of a card indicates what is needed to see the card, so if you do not meet the conditions you cannot move your pawn.
- The agents have a telepathic power that allows them to communicate any information gathered.
- After a discussion the time captain will spend 1 TU and all other players will perform an action.
- Actions that can be performed are: Making a characteristic roll, moving your pawn, or doing nothing.
- If you wish to leave a location, you follow these five steps: Leave the current location, choose a new location, put the first location away, roll the captain die and change the designated time captain.
- To face a test place your shields below your card on the board.
- To succeed, you must eliminate all shields.
- Time Stories can be “saved” and played over multiple sessions so you are able to continue when you choose!
