Description

Squad Seven is an unusual action game involving a CD soundtrack and a dart-gun.

Each player takes a squad of seven people into the jungle to recover Inca treasure. Players take it in turn to reveal cards, which may show treasure or various dangers of the jungle including dinosaurs, mummies and collapsing rope bridges. The soundtrack indicates whether it is day or night - certain cards may only be taken at certain times - and many cards require the player to shoot a target or run round the table before a scream is heard on the soundtrack. If they fail, they lose a member of their squad.

The player who recovers the most treasure wins the game.

Ilyen "tarsas"jatekkal meg nem talalkoztam! (lehet ezt annak nevezni?) CD-rol szolo zorejek kozben, rohangalas az asztal korul, majd kovetkezzek egy tapadokorongos pisztollyal valo zombi-, es szornyvadaszat - es ha van meg mindezek utan energiad, akkor a felsoroltak kozben egy reflexjatekkal szorakoztathatod magadat. Mindezt 17 percben... Nagyon nem szeretem az olyan jatekokat, ahol ki lehet esni - itt ki lehet. Megvaltas volt, amikor visszaérkezett - a meg eletben maradt jatekosokert - a helikopter. (ez jelezte a jatek veget!) Szamomra ez meg partijateknak is gyenguska... (+1 pontot kapott, mert a tunya jatekosokat is egy kis testmozgasra tudja kesztetni a jatek!)

17 minutes. Perfect game to destroy your nerves, have fun and laugh, and then sit down to rest. Absolutely crazy and funny. If it lasted longer you would die...

like many others I rate this game higher than how often I'd actually want to play. extremely fun party-dexteriety game, jungle speed doesn't even come close.

What a fun game. It's pretty ridiculous, but is a nice change of pace now and then. At first you feel pretty silly shooting at the cardboard monsters, but by the end of the game when you're down to your last guy and your entire game depends on getting a shot off, it becomes quite tense! Love the innovation.

A treasure card collecting game with variations. This is probably one that will appeal more to active little boys that like firing the tranquiliser gun (which is not too durable) and running round the table (or down the hall to avoid breakages). There is also the little bit of gruesomeness that comes from your squad members "dying" if you fail to complete a task (shoot a target, run round the table or redeal the discard pile). Although your team members could be resurrected by the witch doctor! The CD (jungle day/night music dictates when treasure cards can be collected) is wonderfully atmospheric and definitely adds to the game, but does mean that it is a game for home, rather than travel. Overall - great fun

What is it with the French and their love of the traditional card game Snap? While this game may have the same mechanics as Snap, the use of the audio soundtrack that you have to listen to in order to know when to snap and when not to snap, the need to run around the table, and the use of a toy pistol, give this game a very diffirent feeling. I won't say an adrenaline rush, but certainly a rush of some kind.

Got a cheap copy on Ebay. Sadly the gun didn't work and two of the darts were missing. I've since replaced the gun with a Nerf N-Strike Maverick six shooter gun. I'm ready to rock with this game as soon as I find a place I can safely play it...

Filler de 17 minutos que se juego con CD de música y en el que hay que alternar una serie de acciones según las cartas que van apareciendo: dar la vuelta a la mesa, disparar, repartir las cartas de nuevo...Original y muy divertido para jugar con niños (y no tan niños). La pistola está genial!!!

A very fun game if you do not fear of being ridiculous when running around your gaming table and firing plastic ammo with your plastic gun. The soundtrack is nice too! :)

A fancy version of the card game "snap", with party game elements. If the plastic gun breaks it can be replaced with any Nerf weapon or similar toy gun. Very much a kids game.

Finally played after four years on my shelf! A great fun reflex game with a dart gun. And a CD. So it's kind of a must-play.

[Dexterity, Reflex] Picked up the Mattel version of this game for US$6 while passing through the Kuala Lumpur airport and stopping by a toy store. Had no idea this was by Roberto Fraga, the Mattel box had no designer credit. Of course, I didn't think of the trouble that trying to get a game with a toy gun in it through airport security might cause. Close to the x-ray machine, it suddenly occurred to me and I stuffed Squad Seven into my bag between Maharaja and Tramfabrik, hoping that the sheer amount of bits would mask the gun's outline. I made it through both the Kuala Lumpur airport security AND more interestingly, the Singapore airport security, and safely got my booty back home to Manila with nary an inquiry. *** UPDATE: Ok, so it's a kid's game. You can still have some fun with it! :) The remix on the game's website is a nice-to-have. Burn to redbook audio and keep in the box for the next time the kids come a-calling. [Rating for kids: 9]

More interesting than I tought it would be. A lot of action, and you're sure to be sweating before the end of the game. Still an action-party game, though, and I'm not the biggest fan of the genre.

Very different, very funny!

Very good atmosphere. Well themed. Bring out the child in all of us! But it's not something that will come out that often.

Te puede servir para echar unas risas con los niños. Si, como yo, lo logras comprar a 6€ vale la pena. Pagar más es tontería.

This game is, effectively, a variant of the old game Slap Jack. It's a really zany, well produced, fun variant, though. Note to those opposed to fluff games: there is NO strategy to this one. It is all quick reactions, running around the table and target shooting. Fun with the right crowd.

2-4 players but I wouldn't play with only 2. It's a pretty unique game that works well with smart, hyperactive kids & energetic adults. I haven't played anything else like it.

I love it - I don't know why there aren't more games like this! I guess one could argue that it's more of an activity than a game, but everything feels fresh. The heart of the game is essentially a speed/recognition game, like Halli Galli. But it's fun to frantically run around the table, shoot the dart gun or try to deal the cards back out to everyone. The CD is an integral part of the game and adds an audio component that is rarely a part of a game (I can think of games like Snorta!, but even the CD in Space Dealer is purely an add-on, not necessary for game play). I think Roberto Fraga must be a genius - he is one of my favorite game designers, along with Schmiel and Knizia.

Great with kids (and mothers-in-law) for fast, furious, action filled fun, or for grownups as a fun filler game. Plenty of great ideas, but could have more depth...

I am not into dexterity games in the first place but this one gets old very quickly. I can't imagine anyone wanting to play this more than once. Slam your hands on the table in half a second to grab treasures whether you have the eyesight to see the snakes or not. I only started to catch up once I started to do this without thinking. Its ten minutes of mindless fun and then you can decide to trade it away.

A very lite game that more or less belong into the category of party games. For a younger audience this has to be quite good. For adults it is a quite a good laugh if you have the right group as well. Lasting only 17 minutes it is also a very good filler. Too sad it is only gfor 4 players

Oh, for a rulebook as slick, attractive and well-designed as the fabulous dartgun that comes in the same package! A classic example of restricting the proofreading duties exclusively to those who already know the game, this is all the more crippling here because it neatly severs Squad Seven from the potentially huge audience it could have had. Once you collectively decide on how you’ll actually play the game (and the rules and components at least help to restrict this decision to a sensible common ground), Squad Seven will give you 17 minutes of hectic, chaotic and hilarious fun. Without these preliminary decisions, the game will assuredly break down right in the midst of it, and that would be a shame, because you were just going to shoot that two-headed dinosaur.

Ayant comme destination le Musée d'Histoire Naturelle de Washington, un avion cargo chargé d'oeuvres d'art et autres trésors arrachés aux antiques cités Incas s'est écrasé dans une région reculée de la jungle amazonienne. «Votre mission si vous l'acceptez» est de mener une équipe de 7 aventuriers pour récupérer un maximum de ces trésors. Votre Squad est débarqué au coeur de la jungle par un hélico et vous devez chercher ces trésors jour et nuit à travers un territoire dangereux et inexploré avant que l'hélico ne vienne vous récupérer.

Definitely fun for a few plays, especially at a game party or convention. Then I was happy to move it along to someone else's collection.

Quite a riot! Do not play before going to bed. This will make you burn calories like there is no tomorrow. Highly recommedned for families with under-active kids and for gamers wanting to get in shape. Plays like Uno on steroid. One small, tiny complaints: it seemed to us as though the daytime/nighttime tracks lasted a wee bit too long.

Neat game of slap-jack wrapped around a silly theme. Comes with a CD and play gun. I would have loved this as a 12-year old but sadly my slap skills are too poor to ever appreciate this.

Fun, original, lots of action, and packed with theme--it's own background CD, shooting, slapping (cards) My kids like it. My wife likes it. I like it. We all use our own Nerf dart gun rather than the dart gun provided. Too bad it's hard to come by--Mattel could have had a winner here.

Speed recognition with a soundtrack, some running around the table, and occasional shooting with a dart gun. Very nice graphic design. A great party experience.

One of the best dexterity games! Pure fun and strong theme. Real party game.

Very crazy game I had been reluctant about. The box design is just awful! The game itself though is pretty funky and you need to be in a special mood for that one, if you got kids, you can always count on them, if playing with friends that don't look at it with friendly eyes... have 'em have a few glasses of alcoholic beverage first! It will be crazy fun hence forth! And those bloody 17 minutes take incredibly long... The gun alone is absolutely worth it (got the one from the first edition which looks kinda like sci-fi, the coil is pretty hard... which is cool :cool:!) [b]Good fun in little time![/b] [b]loud and crazy fun[/b]

Typical with gadgets in games, faults occur such as here that 3 of the 6 darts tend to "dribble" out of the gun, rather than shoot out to reach the targets. Is this intentional? This can be infuriating for the competitors and fun for the onlookers.
