Board Game Capital's Review:
Partners GameMove over Sorry, your cousin is here and is ready to steal some attention. The game rules to Partners will seem very, very familiar if you've ever played the game called Sorry. In fact, we were really surprised to see how similar they are even down to card 7's value being split and card 4 moving you backwards. Then we kept reading the rules and realized that there is enough variation in the game that makes this uniquely different and opens up a lot of fun possibilities.

The game is built with good quality game pieces although we would have liked to see a sturdier game board (it's a little thin). The pawns are made from painted wood and the cards are nice and simple (although not a standard size). Game rules explain how to play, but lack a few images to help you visually see what is going on. The game box feels big for what is inside but is due to the size of the game board. These are just small and picky things that don't detract from how fun the game is.

Playing this game is a lot of fun. We loved playing with a partner and having a silent strategy. Passing cards between each other was a fun idea. We liked how multiple pawns can be on the same spot and eat any other pawns that land there. Not being able to pass pawns on their starting space was interesting and introduced a new challenge and strategy.

Partners GameThere can be a lot of strategy in this game but you'll have to deal with the luck of the draw. Passing cards between each other helps if you're on the same page and have the correct cards. Sometimes you just don't have good cards so your out the whole round. It starts out calm, gets crazy in the middle with pawns everywhere, then finishes quickly once one player goes out and helps the other. Shuffling and dealing cards each round gets a little tiresome but taking turns helps.

Partners is a great game for four player and four players only. This slightly limits your ability to play the game since you have to have four players to play. We felt like working as a team was the best part of the game. Learning how to play was quick and easy. We also watched the how to play video which helped clarify some things we were confused about in the rule book. Partners plays fun, has some fun strategy and usually finishes in under an hour so this fits our idea of a great game!
