Great Scott! The Game of Mad Invention is a very silly Victorian themed card game of rival mad inventors. Draft Asset and Concept cards to make silly inventions such as the “Bedazzling Duck Driven Bauxite Behemoth” and then give a short presentation on its merits to your fellow inventors.
The second printing is coming soon: smaller box, with the same content as the original, including the “Commissions” expansion! Pre-orders are open now for shipping in June.
In Great Scott!, the whimsical 19th century parlour game that never was, 3-5 players build five card inventions with an eye to victory in the inventor’s contest at the Great Exhibition. Combine Animal, Mineral, and Vegetable assets with Destructive, Productive, and Transportive concepts to create one of the greatest inventions not known to mankind!
In a game of Great Scott!, players draft cards & add components to their invention. Matching sets of asset & concept cards give bonus points, but the biggest prizes are awarded for alliteration. Then, when your invention is finished, explain what it does and how it works to get extra points from the other inventors.
Great Scott! is easy to learn, fast to play, and is guaranteed to amuse!
Will your Bedazzling Bat Borne Brass Balloon outdo your rival’s Diabolical Dynamite Driven Duck Dispatcher? Perhaps, if you play your cards right…
Consider carefully; clever card combinations and amusing alliterative amalgamations bring bountiful bonuses!
For Her Majesty, and for science!
