Board Game Capital's Review:
From a sheer act of boredom tossing expired credit cards across a table (love the backstory) to a clever and professionally designed tabletop game, Brink is a game that stands apart from your typical card game. We were excited to give this game a try and we were not disappointed. It's very simple to learn how to play and doesn't take the whole afternoon to play (although after a few exciting rounds that turned into a couple rematch games we had been playing for a while). Even better, we loved the low age limit and how it can include just about everyone.

Brink CardsThe quality and packaging of this game is genius. The cards are made from plastic and are similar to a credit card. The printing looks great and we loved the graphics. The little box that the cards sit in is quite a work of art. It reminded us of a gum box that folds around and tucks into a slit on the side of the box. Not only is the "tuck box" made from thicker material, when you unfold it, it flattens into your rule book since the inside is full color printed with rules. We loved how this game was physically made and packaged.

About 40% of the game could be strategy and the left over 60% boils down to raw card-throwing talent mixed with luck. Some players just threw the cards (with all different styles and techniques) while others tried to strategically throw the special cards in an attempt to gain more points. This worked some of the time and added to the excitement and fun filled aggravation of the cards not doing what you want. The only thing missing was a way to keep track of your points but that is easily done on any piece of paper. Depending on who you are playing with, a yardstick might come out to be absolutely sure a card has crossed the line to be in the scoring zone or in the 2X-your-score zone (we may or may not be speaking from experience).

If you want a laid back yet engaging game that gets everyone involved Brink is your game. The pressure gets put on when it's your turn and it's fun to taunt others while you watch them in their turn. Great as a party game or a fun activity while you wait - we were even tempted to break it out while we waited for our food at a restaurant...
