May 8, 2017 - Today, Mayday Games is pleased to announce Rooster Rush, a card game by designers Antoine Bauza, Corentin Lebrat. Rooster Rush is based on the previously published design Gaijin Dash! by the same designers. Rooster Rush is a party game in which players need to cross the road while avoiding oncoming vehicles. Observation, risk-taking, and speed are the three skills you need in order to keep out of the animal hospital!
Players simultaneously compete over crossing cards worth various points. To claim a card, the player must be the first to slap their hand on the card. But beware, only safe crossing cards are eligible to be claimed. While players are deciding which cards, if any, to claim - tokens representing the threatening vehicles are spinning on their edges. Instead of heads or tails, in Rooster Rush the tokens will land either safe or unsafe side up. Safe cards are claimed, unsafe cards count as being hit by the vehicle. Claim three unsafe cards and you are eliminated from the game. The first player to claim 11 points or more in cards, or to be the last rooster rushing, wins the game!
This simple dexterity speed game will delight players with its different potential win conditions and quick play. Light enough to play with kids and yet fast and fun enough to be played as a filler on those serious gamer nights. Rooster Rush is for 3 to 6 players and takes approximately 15 minutes to play. It includes 5 Vehicle Tokens, 40 Crossing Cards, and 1 Red Button Card. Rooster Rush is expected to be available in the USA in Quarter 4 of 2017 and will be released on Kickstarter in late May 2017.
