Board Game Breakfast’s best theme for a Kickstarter game: YouTube video – mention begins at 8:40min (July 8, 2014)
Jason Tagmire (designer of Pixel Lincoln): “Antidote is a quick, 10-minute deduction game that feels like a mini, competitive Pandemic. With fast set-up and maximum replay-ability, my group constantly insisted on going back for another shot. It scratched the deduction itch for us in a quick and different way. I’m looking forward to more plays!”
Brian Worrel (Play Games Ames): “Skillful deduction, keen memory and honed perception skills are essential to surviving this lethal scenario. The games felt tense. The final reveal was always followed by ‘Yes!’ or ‘No way!’ or ‘Wow, how did I miss that?’”
Jonathan Nelson (Gaming Bits): This is truly a very fun game. It’s not going to take you long to play and would be great as a precursor to Pandemic.
Tox, (CritsHappen.com): “The science geek is me is highly intrigued by this game, and the gamer in me loves the style. Bring on the Antidote!”
K.B. Hoyle (author): “Antidote, definitely the most fun I’ve ever had trying to defend myself against a deadly outbreak! Help your friends stay alive, or let them die. It’s up to you!”
Paul Meuth (gamer): “My friends and I found this game easy to pickup. Within minutes we were devising ways to deceive each other. The longer we played, the louder the laughter became.”
Jonathan Schindler, FarmerLenny from iSlaytheDragon.com: “Antidote hits several sweet spots for a deduction game. It has minimal components, simple rules, and a clever concept. Beyond this, it’s also very (sometimes uproariously) fun.”
Yi-ling Hu (casual gamer): “Antidote is a really fun game! It’s fun because you have to remember other player’s action, and try to mislead them with your action. I enjoyed this game a lot and I can’t wait to play with my friends.”
The following people tried the Antidote Print and Play during the campaign and had this to say about Antidote:
Steven C: Played the game last night with four others and it was a hit. Simple to play and very fun. Nothing more exciting than flipping the face down antidote card over at the end and laughing because everyone died except yourself.
Isaac H: Just played the Print`N`Play and absolutely loved it with 2 players. We were hurriedly trying to guess the correct antidote before forcing the game to end, leaving the other desperately using syringes and swapping research. Brilliant fun. We were laughing and kicking ourselves every time we won or lost.
Mike T: After three plays with my PnP version, I’m enjoying this and itching for more.
