I obviously love the goonies movie and i find it very nostalgic. So i really wanted to like this game going in for my first playthough, and i did. The mechanisms of this game reminds me of a card based version of pandemic. All players share four turns and you have to pool your cards, which i feel encorages communication. You need to make the most of each turn and your character abilities as at the end of each turn the game escalates(the games term that is similar to infecting cities in pandemic) adding another obstacle to one of the five locations. This makes clearing obstacles harder every turn especially when the new card has the escalation symbol on it(which means you have to draw another card) or the encounter symbol which reminds me of outbreaks.There art style is very retro with stills from the film and a really cool but not totally necessary goonies meeple. Pandemic comparisons aside its a great game in its own right. Great challenge for me and my wife and there are cards to make it harder, which i wont be using yet as its noce and challenging already.
