The player trays and their function

Marina Clementina

Freddie Funster

If he comes up with the “Stay cool, dude” action, then the patient is released in bed four when he is cured and Freddie gets the prestige points at Hospital Rush. If this is not the case, he chooses a new patient from the cards and places his marker on it. But he is not allowed to treat the patient with this action.

Theo Goodberg

With the action “This is my patient now”, he can steal the patient from another player and gives the player back his marker. If there is also a marker from Marina Clementina there, it remains in place.

Kurt von Schneider

When it is Kurt’s turn, the action “You still owe me something” counts, which includes the same rules as for treating patients.

Vanessa Toad

With the action “What a simulant” she discharges the patient and puts him on the discard pile. Everything that was on the patient is given back. If the patient is cured, Vanessa receives a prestige point.

Unfortunately there is with this one Play with light tactical moves Little interaction between the players, as everyone plays more for himself. Through the use of illegal actions, it is important who the starting player is and how the seating arrangement was determined right from the start. If you want to spin an illegal thing at the end of a game round, then of course you would rather give the left player next to you the starting player so that you can no longer be teased.

Doctors are assigned different characteristics and not all of them are highly effective. This is where the wheat is separated from the chaff, because who is really only concerned with the well-being of the patient or rather with his or her reputation? There are those who literally struggle and then there are those who, as in real life, only reach their goal by lying and deceit. On the whole, though, it’s a nice game and a nice pastime.
