In THE GOONIES: Adventure Card Game, you play as a ragtag oupoup of kids from the Goon Docks neighborhood of Astoria, Oregon. You must join together on a quest to find the treasure of legendary pirate One-Eyed Willy so that you can save your homes from demolition! You will need to keep your wits about you and use your unique skills to avoid One-Eyed Willy’s booby traps and also stay one step ahead of the Fratellis, a family of criminals intent on claiming the treasure for themselves.
As players, you will each represent a member of The Goonies, and you must all work together as a team. Unlike in most games, in The Goonies: Adventure Card Game, players do not take individual turns. You will collectively pool your cards to take team actions, working each turn to clear obstacles, move between locations, evade the Fratellis, and map a path to the ship of One-Eyed Willy.
To win, you must discover the gem at each of the five locations, and successfully store them along the paths you’ve previously mapped. Each turn, more obstacles will appear — maybe even the Fratellis! You will lose if there are ever five obstacles present at any one location, or if there are five total Fratelli cards in play, or if you exhaust the encounter deck.
