Please Fix the Teleporter seizes on the horrifying idea of a transporter breaking mid-teleport, leaving Captain Gerf and his arch nemesis Emperor Korlax trapped within the beam as a garbled mess of parts! You and your fellow likely-to-be demoted teleporter techs are racing to see who can fix the teleporter first and save the Captain and the Emperor from becoming a massive pile of nightmare fuel.
We received a review copy of Please Fix the Teleporter for our consideration and potential review. We weren’t otherwise compensated.
Each player will have a set of 4 double sided tiles. When assembled correctly, one side will show the Captain and the other side, the Emperor. At the beginning of a round, the top card of the deck will be flipped, revealing an image. The players must then rush to assemble their tiles into a matching image. As soon as you get your tiles arranged, you’ll slap your hand down on the card and the round ends. All of the other players must verify that your tiles do indeed match the card’s image. If so, you will claim the card as a point. If your tiles don’t match exactly, you don’t get the card and you have to skip the next round.
Once any player has collected 5 cards, they win!
Please Fix the Teleporter is very simple, but that is the beauty of the game. Being tiny in size, fast to play, and light on rules means that Please Fix the Teleporter can be enjoyed anywhere with anyone. The game is rated for ages 8 and up, but I think younger players will definitely enjoy it just as well. Also, the game needs very little tablespace, only requiring enough room for the deck and the tiles. I could see this easily becoming a travel game to break out while waiting in a long line for something or to play in between activities to keep your energy high.
