Regarding general sales:
General sales of "Newsboys" are scheduled to begin in November. You will be able to place your order on our website shortly before the sale date.
An Easy-Playing Flip & Roll & Write
A game with no turns, so the action moves smoothly. Most of the time players play on their own then at the end of the round everyone checks to see who got the coveted big bonuses. While simple to play there are many types of bonuses to shoot for and you can chain actions together to make a big move.
Course of Play
We start each round by flipping a card from a shared deck. Each player chooses 1 icon and marks their board the number of times it appears on your 3 dice & the 3 shared symbols on the cards. You have to balance between increasing your sales area and filling up your strike gauge.
Perfect Bonus Chain
If you finish one block of a type perfectly you earn a bonus mark. If you plan it just right you can make a chain of these perfect bonuses. This in turn can help you get some high-point bonuses that only the first player to achieve them gets.
Newsboys can also be played as a 1-player game. Timing cards, that are only for the solo experience, create a limit on the high-point bonuses. Even in solo mode you can enjoy similar tension found in the multi-player game.
