How to play | Back to the Future
Have you done the setup? Well, now you are ready to get into the game! Begin by giving the youngest player the “First Player” marker, he must then draw the Event cards e roll the dice simultaneously with the other players. The game proceeds clockwise, the players’ task is to solve the events that are written on the cards. In addition, you must eliminate the Paradox tokens and be careful to avoid Biff and the other DeLoreans in order not to risk having penalties that will bring you closer to Game Over. Only after you have solved an event will you be able to take one Object card, in this circumstance your goal is to bring the object back to the right place. Whenever an object is returned to the correct place and time, the player must move the OUTATIME marker back one space and thus obtain an Einstein token, which will be made available to everyone to resolve the events. Victory occurs when the players return all the objects to the correct place and time before the OUTATIME marker reaches the Game Over space.
