You're living the dream. You're in a band and they’re about to go on tour. It's your job to schedule the band's stops over your 100-day tour, visiting as many states as possible.
The dice and the cards make it hard to plan, but not impossible. Hope for the best, plan for the worst, and you'll be the perfect band manager.
It seems easy at first, but planning this route will make you scratch your head.
At its core, On Tour is a route building puzzle. It will seem easy at first, but as the map starts to fill, the choices start to get harder.
The dice and the cards may make it seem random at first, but there are many ways to deal with it, to mitigate the luck and put your plans and your route in a good position to succeed.
If you're looking for a quick playing game that challenges your brain but plays smooth and is easy to understand, download the On Tour App.
Each turn the app will roll two dice and reveal 3 cards to you. The dice combine to create two numbers. For example, if a 7 and 3 are rolled, your numbers are 37 and 73.
You need to put each of those numbers in a state. They represent which day of your tour you can visit that state.
But think carefully. At the end of the game you will be scored based on how many states you can visit. And the route can only go to bigger and bigger (or equal) numbers. See the image above as an example.
To throw a wrench in all of that, the three cards will restrict which region you can write in each turn.
It can be a challenge, but we've added in some bonuses to help you. There are ways to get wild numbers and ways to score double points for some states.
It may not sound clear right now, but it will become second nature shortly. Don't worry, the app takes care of all the rules for you and has a tutorial to explain the game visually.
On Tour is a 20 minute route-building, roll-and-write board game with large, premium components. One to four (12+, with additional maps) players share dice rolls and cards to try to visit as many states as possible as they schedule a 100-day tour across the United States for their band.
Each turn, dice determine which numbers you write and cards restrict where you can write. Players write simultaneously on their own maps, all using the same dice rolls and cards flips. Everyone is getting the same inputs, but how you choose to deal with them will determine your success.
There are also wilds, opportunities for bonus points, and a variable setup phase to make every game different. Watch the Man vs Meeple 5 min video to learn all the rules.
