Bandido, the small boxed game that takes over the whole table.
Bandido is a quick fun game that you play cooperatively with other players or as a solo player.
The aim is to stop the Bandido from escaping by blocking off all his tunnels.
There is a starting card that has either 5 starting tunnels, or flipped over, 6 starting tunnels.
Each player starts with a hand of 3 cards, they play one joining a tunnel, (tunnel placement rule is that a tunnel has to join from another and cannot go into a wall), then redraw to 3 cards. If there is no way you can place one of your cards legally, you put your 3 cards at the bottom of the draw pile and draw another 3. If you block off all tunnel entrances before the draw pile ends, you win. If you don't the Bandido escapes and wins.
The solo game is no different from the multi player. It may be a little easier only by the fact you don't have to worry about the random cards other players play, but can just focus on what you have. That being said, it is still very easy to lose!
This game is so much fun..... I think I like it even better in solo mode.
It is a small box and a cheap game to buy. It is a quick shuffle and play setup. It plays fast, 10 - 20 minutes solo, and is a great puzzle. I really really like it as a solo game.
