  1. This game has been universally panned by all our other favourite reviewers. I'm surprised to see the glowing feedback here. Sorry Rahdo, I'm gonna avoid this one.

  2. Or maybe for Biff you take half the number of your cards rounded up and pick that number of cards and let them choose one of those cards? So for example if you have 3 cards you can keep the one you desperately want and let the other player choose of the other two? I suppose though that lets your opponent see cards that will stay in your hand. Just a thought….

  3. So many others have said this game is terrible. I love the movie. I haven't had the opportunity to play it but it doesn't look fun at all from the videos I have seen. I'm really torn if I want this. I'm thinking no.

  4. Looks like it's worth a shot, and some variants could make it even better.  The artwork looks great to me.

  5. Haha, you know what, you could be playing the DeLorean itself, because your traveling around time getting characters in the right time zones 😀

    I'll give it a look, I was worried that it might have been a ripoff of another game but it does seem to be it's own game. I actually thought that it was a co-op game at the start of the play through. It might even go into the small but growing collection of "movie/game licensed board games" section in my shelf.

  6. Just make the Biff action the same as the George action, and problem solved. You still draw a card, and you remove the "interactive" (mean) obstacle.

  7. Thanks for the review! 🙂

    Personally I played it, did not have a good time. Back to the Bargain bin. I reallly, REALLLY wanted this to be good but this game is more finnicky for what it is. There are a lot of options and things to consider and I just never felt that it was worth the result at the end. Its using the IDW artwork which makes sense but some of the art is kinda meh I think, plus there are cards that are way more useful than others and hoping to get the card I need for the era left me kinda sitting there going well I cant really do much this round. Maybe next round.

    The game just seemed a bit…disjointed? Maybe? I don't know, all I do know is I have no want to play this again. The game is more complex than it should be, not that its difficult (rules are not done well either) but it is more like the complexity was added to just make it heavier than a straight forward card set collection for points which is what it looks like at first glance.

    Now if there was a time stories BTTF module I would love to see how that would pan out. Its a shame, I have no doubt it will sell copies on nostalgia alone, but for me I am glad I didn't buy it and it belongs to another member in the group. Group consensus was sell/trade it. Such a shame.

    Edit: I should also mention that I am a huge fan of the IP, Movies, Collectibles, Replica flux capacitor, but even that couldn't sway me. Great scott!

  8. so glad to see some dissenting opinions here. Rado can like this… but he is the minority. This is a terrible use of an intellectual property, and this game is God damn terrible

  9. I had to watch this because this game is terrible, and you don't usually run through terrible games, so that must mean that you actually liked it, and I had to see how this was possible. I…still don't know the answer to that.

  10. I think what you need to defend against Biff is a "Pile of Manure" card that you discard when someone tries to use Biff's power on you, and the defender gets to draw a card instead of the attacker getting to steal one.

  11. Nice runthrough Rahdo. I have heard the negative press about this game, but wanted to see for myself. It is too light for me and my wife, but I can see the appeal as a lighter multi-use card, race game for some people out there. I don't understand people saying that this isn't even a game at all. It think it really just comes down to some disappointment from people that this IP was used on a lighter and more abstracted card game. Shame on anyone telling you that your opinion is wrong. Especially after all of the amazing content you provide for our hobby. Keep up the amazing work.

  12. Thanks so much for your run through and all the run throughs you do! I hear over and over "try it before you buy it" but where I live there are no opportunities so I depend on your videos to put myself in your place to see its something I would enjoy. I have been happy with every purchase I have made this way 😊 I do watch your final thoughts and I get a lot out of them but board gaming is such a subjective experience and I would be crazy to think that we will all like the same games. Thank you for sticking to what you always say that you do not review games you give your own playing experience which I am so grateful because very few can demonstrate the feel of a game while there is more than enough reviewers.

  13. I like that Rahdo gives his honest opinion on a game, instead of giving a middle of the road opinion that falls more in line with his peers. I see that in the movie reviews all the time. Instead of telling people THEIR opinion on a movie, the reviewer gives a review that neither praises nor condemns the movie – this happens more with blogs than industry trades but trades are often heavily influenced by studio PR anyway.

    I picked this game up without watching any reviews because, I too, enjoy the property. Haven't had a chance to play it yet, but am very much looking forward to it.

  14. Yea I REALLY wish this was a good game I love BTTF, but this is just Blah Even a simple BTTF deckbuilder would be better than this, maybe BTTF Legendary Encounters or something. Now I'm going to make like a tree and get out of here.
