Standalone spin-off to Nürnberger-Spielkarten-Verlag’s tactical card title adds 28 instructions to complicate gameplay

Publisher Nürnberger-Spielkarten-Verlag has revealed The Game: Extreme, a spin-off to Steffen Benndorf’s game of tactical card laying co-designed by in-house developer Reinhard Staupe.

The title’s gameplay sticks closely to that of its namesake, challenging players to play 98 numbered cards in a specific order, either ascending from 1 or descending from 100, with jumps of 10 permitted.

However, the ‘Extreme’ spin arrives through the introduction of instructions on some of the cards, with 28 different commands requiring players to immediately break their pattern, pick up cards, ‘STOP’ and more.

Described as ‘the ultimate challenge’ and a ’mission impossible’, The Game: Extreme will include 110 cards and launch at Essen in the middle of next month.
