From the Publisher...

THE CRAZY NEW CARD GAME FROM REINER KNIZIA!

LOCO! is a fast and zany card game from the award-winning designer of The Lord of the Rings and Kingdoms board games. Fast-paced and easy to learn, LOCO! is simple enough to play with your family, but strategic enough to satisfy your inner gamer.

LOCO! is destined to become 'The Game That Takes 30 Seconds To Learn!' In other words: Its Crazy Easy!

LOCO! contains 30 cards, 25 colored chips, and a rulesheet. The game is suitable for 2-5 players ages 8 and up and can be played in 15 minutes.

Our Comments...

This is a newly published version of Knizia's Flinke Pinke/Quandary.

Here's a mini-review by Mike. This originally appeared in the Newsletter on June 8, 2003.

This is the new Reiner Knizia game published by Fantasy Flight Games. It's billed as the game you can learn in 30 seconds and that's not far off. Anyone in the hobby long enough will recognize this as a new version of Knizia's Flinke Pinke or Quandary, as it was titled here in the US. Quandary sold for $35 retail when it came out. If that was too high priced or if you missed the printing of that game, you'll be glad to know Loco sells for less than $10. But it's no less fun in my opinion.

I took Loco to the coffee shop last night to try it out. The rules are so extremely simple: Play a card (they range from 0 to 5 in 5 colors), then pick up a chip (there's 5 of each color). When the 6th card of a color is played, the round ends. The last card played in each color indicates the value of those chips. Loco adds one other rule-if you play a Loco card (a value of 0), you have to say Loco before the card hits the table. It's one of those Uno-like rules, but it is quite functional. It's vital to be alerted when one of the colors just became worthless.

Loco has a nice effect on players, particularly those who like games but don't see many of the clever things coming from the Euro-games. It can be tense and even downright aggravating. Imagine having to play a card that lowers your points just because the round went a turn longer than you expected!

I highly recommend Loco to anyone who likes fast, simple games that will appeal to a wide range of gamers. A round can take less than 10 minutes. You can stop there or keep playing until each player starts a round. Either way, you're looking at a great filler that almost anyone will enjoy.
