Bandido is a pocket sized, tile laying, cooperative, maze game. Players take on the role of prison guards, trying to prevent a prisoner from escaping jail through an ever-growing series of tunnels.
Players have a hand of three tunnel tiles and on their turn play one tile and then draw back up to three.
The tunnel tiles played will sometimes increase the number of junctions in the tunnel system. This gives the Bandido more options and so it easier for him to escape. Happily though, at times players will join two branches back to one, or seal a tunnel off with a dead end. The aim of the game is to seal all tunnels; so that the Bandido cannot escape.
To make things more challenging, players cannot discuss their tiles and so can inadvertently undo the planned move of the next player!
An easy to learn, and quick to play cooperative game for all the family.
For 1-4 players, ages 6 and up, allow 15 minutes to play.
