Alcatraz Island is home to one of the most formidable federal prisons ever conceived. Though many men have tried, no one has ever successfully escaped from “the Rock”.
In this Mystery Rummy card game based on real prisoners and actual events, it is your job to foil escape attempts by gathering information on plans and capturing the ringleaders.
Escape from Alcatraz is a game for 2 to 4 players that is played out over a series of rounds. In each round, players take turns drawing cards and possibly playing Plan cards and/or an Escapee card.
When the players collect enough information about an escape attempt, including the mastermind, they can foil the escape attempt, capture the culprit and score points. A round is over either when a player discards his or her last card, or at the end of a player’s turn when there are no more cards in the “Cell Block” (draw pile).
The goal of the game is to earn points by helping to foil escape plans. The winner is the first player to reach 100 or more points at the end of a round.
