Something's wrong. It's a rainy day in Seattle, you're bored, and you live in your mom's basement. But that's normal. Your dad's been harping on you to get a job. That's normal too. No, what's really wrong is that you're about to give up this perfect gig and actually try to get a life.
Your friends get wind of your harebrained idea and decide to race you. Not because they particularly want to get lives, but just to prove that they can do it faster than you can.
Your objective? Get a job. Get an apartment. Survive the trials of life-on-your-own. Your pitfalls? You've got no taste, a crappy car, and aspirations of being a success without lifting a finger. And sometimes your loser genes get the better of you.
Game Synopsis: Get Out is a Monopoly-style game with three tracks instead of one, and a couple of nice mechanical twists. The squares on the outer board are jobs, and the squares on the middle board are apartments. You can take as many jobs as you want, but each one slows you down, making it harder to get to Payday. Money doesn't really matter anyway; the real point of the game is to spend four months in the terrifying center ring. Not that they necessarily have to be four months in a row....
Get Out, one of Cheapass Games' earliest titles, is also one of its best. The Gen X/slacker humor in the game makes it hilarious the first time through, and the game's good replayability keeps it enjoyable years later.
Although the game indicates it's for 2-8 players, in practice it works best for 3-5. With only 2 players there isn't enough competition for jobs or apartments. With more than 5 there's too much competition and too long between turns.
A Monopoly type game about getting out of mom's house and making a life for yourself. There are three tracks around the board and you win if you can complete 4 circuits on the short inner track. The outside track is made up of mostly various jobs. You need at least one of these to get to the middle track. Jobs are not always easy to get though, as the other layabouts are also trying to get jobs. Having too many jobs can also give you less free time (slow you down). The second level is mostly apartments that you can rent; you need to rent an apartment to get to the third level. Apartments cost money and you may have to take on more jobs to afford one. It is a simple game that is fun, but about as strategic as Monopoly, although much more interesting.
