Newsboys details

Newsboys overview

Newsboys / ニュースボーイ is a flip-and-roll-and-write game for 1-4 players about paperboys in Brooklyn, New York in the 1890s.

During the game, you mark Xs on your player board with a pen to gradually expand your newspaper delivery area. Each turn, someone flips the top card of the deck to reveal three icons, and each player rolls their three dice; each player then chooses one icon and marks off as many of those spaces on their board as the number of icons visible on the cards and their dice.

Earn icons from blocks of different types such as offices, homes, school, factories, and shops. Earn points in the game (and at game's end) for expanding your delivery area faster than the other players. However, if you don't demand higher wages through strikes, then all your work will earn you less.

Whoever earns the most points wins.
