Gameday First Play – Rhino Hero

Rhino Hero presents players with an incredibly heroic – and regrettably heavy – rhinoceros who is eager to climb a tall building and leap other tall buildings in a single bound. First, though, you need to construct that building.

Players each start the game with five roof cards, and they take turns adding walls and roofs to a single building. On a turn, you first place walls on the highest floor, then you choose a roof card in your hand and place it on the wall. Each roof card bears markings that indicate where the next player must place walls on the card. In addition, some roof cards force a player to perform special actions, such as placing a second roof, changing the direction of play, or moving Super Rhino to a new location on the tower. Keep your hands steady!

The first player to build all of his roof cards wins the game. Alternatively, if the building collapses, the player who caused the collapse automatically loses, and the player with the fewest roof cards in hand wins.

That sums it up really 🙂

You have a hand of cards and each turn you play one and add folded wall cards to the (floor) card you just played.

The roof cards have abilities like reversing the direction of play, skipping the next player, playing an additional card, forcing the next player to draw…

Finally, some of the cards have a Rhino symbol… For this, you pick the Rhino up from wherever he is and put him on his space on the top floor. Sometimes he’s quite hard to get if he’s tight up against a wall..

Anyway, eventually someone will knock the tower over and that player will lose.

The player/s with the fewest cards in their hand wins…

It’s good, but annoyingly frustrating. Skip a turn? Reverse Direction? Draw a card? All harsh.. I had to draw 2 cards so I had no chance of ‘winning. Also, if I had been mean the person going after be wouldn’t have had a turn all game…

But, the building and stuff is fun… That’s it.
