Race to build your town to the best of your ability as the conditions keep changing. Just finishing the town is easy enough, but quickly satisfying all the conditions is enough to make your brain go crazy. From kids to adults, Nine Tiles Panic is a speedy and exciting puzzle game for all ages!
In Nine Tiles Panic, players have a set of nine double-sided town tiles.
At the beginning of a round, three scoring cards are revealed, such as most aliens on a single road, most dogs visible, or longest road. All player then scramble to assemble their town in whatever pattern seems best, trying to score points for one, two, or three of the scoring cards as they wish. As soon as the first player decides that they've finished, they flip the sand timer and everyone else has 90 seconds to complete their town, then players determine who scores for which cards, with ties being broken in favor of whoever finished first. Players score points based on the number of players, and players track their score on a chart over multiple rounds.
