In Turbo Taxi, players try to be as quick as possible in making a town layout which meets the stipulated requirements. They have to add road tiles to a starting tile so that both their taxis can reach their destinations.
Well, Huston we have a little problem here :P This game is good! Above average that's why i rated it 4 stars. But i am so bad at this game!!! I mean it! OR my friend is so dang good! In this game you have to build a 3x3 square with one start random tile placed in the middle. Then you must connect the roads beetween the destinations! The quicker player is the WInner! Thats all! This game produces so much rage beetween friends! But its so fun too!
Play it, and then buy it!
Turbo Taxi is a Friedemann Friese game that was originally released in 2000 with a different theme and with the name Flickwerk. It's a puzzle-like Ubongo style of game, and in the newer rethemed version players race to place tiles representing streets into a fixed 3x3 grid, so that the streets align and so that two taxis can get to their respective destinations. You can become very skillful at playing, and some people are just better at puzzling than others - I tend to get trounced when playing this in competition with the nimble fingers and quick minds of all the females in the house.
Why is it appealing?
So why might this game not be for you? Some things to consider:
So is Turbo Taxi a game for you? That will depend somewhat on your tastes, because while the puzzle genre has a very broad appeal in general, hardcore gamers often find themselves shying away from this type of game, particularly if it's fast paced and frantic. But then again, aren't we always on the lookout for something that we can pull out when non-gamer Aunt Joan is visiting, or those rascally cousins? Turbo Taxi is very easy to get to the table with a variety of people, and therein lies its appeal, even if it might not be your own personal first choice. And if you are the puzzle-loving type, then you really should check this out! It's a great little filler for all types of gamers. So paint your hair green, hop on your bike, and join designer Friedemann Friese in Turbo Taxi!
