8Bit Box is a board game that will remind you the golden age of video games as each player has a gamepad to program their actions, using three wheels: direction, symbol, and value.
The base game contains three different games influenced by classic old-school video games.
Move around the Circuit Board using your controller. Playing as Pixoid? Try to escape the Bugs for as long as you can! Playing as a Bug? Do your best to coordinate your moves with the other Bugs to catch Pixoid as fast as possible!
Each round, Pixoid is played by a different player. Once each player has played as Pixoid, whoever has the most victory points wins.
Using your controller, decide the amount of energy you would like to spend on the current Trial. Each trial is different and you will have to be in sync with your teammates to go the distance and win the most Medals after 10 Trials. Each type of Medal is worth a different number of victory points. The Team with the most victory points at the end of the game wins.
Using your controller, choose the route you’ll take for the next leg of the race. There are many possible strategies, and you’ll need to be cunning to be the first across the finish line. Managing your fuel level, accelerating at just the right time, and hindering your opponents will be the keys to success. Be in the lead at the end of the final tile to be declared the winner!
