Save Dr. Lucky

Well, Pazio successfully did it will Kill Dr. Lucky, so why not with Save Dr. Lucky? The sinking ship gmae mechanic is pretty cool and SDL was up for an Origins Award when it first came out because of it. BTW, this is not an add on for Kill Dr. Lucky, this is a stand alone game. The original version never sold as well as Kill Dr. Lucky, when Cheapass published it. We generally sold 5 copies of Kill Dr. Lucky to every copy of Save. Guess people just enjoyed killing the old coot more than they did saving him.

Coming in December

Save Doctor Lucky (Deluxe Ed.)

$29.99 SRP

April 14, 1912.
A cold night in the Atlantic.
An errant iceberg, a titanic cruise ship, and one very lucky old man.

Doctor Lucky is a charismatic and well-respected philanthropist with a heart of gold. Of course, you secretly hate the old bastard, and you’re probably going to try to kill him someday. But killing him aboard a sinking ship would be pointless. So you’ve decided to save his life instead, and do it while someone else is looking. That way, even if you go down with the ship, you’ll at least go down in history.

And isn’t that what life is all about?

In Save Doctor Lucky, players are passengers on a sinking ship. You have one goal: to save Doctor Lucky’s life while someone else is watching. Players rush from deck to deck trying to find items that will aid them, and trying not to see anyone else who might play the hero. But as the ship sinks, the board grows smaller, bringing Doctor Lucky and the passengers together into the few remaining decks.

Save Doctor Lucky includes:

  • A four-part game board
  • A deck of 90 card
  • A rule book
  • Pawns and stands for seven players and Doctor Lucky

Save Doctor Lucky is the standalone prequel to Kill Doctor Lucky, also available from Paizo Publishing.
