Museum Rush is a competitive thieving game where players race against time to steal treasures from a museum while avoiding cameras, guards and greedy rivals. Luckily these dastardly robbers have an array of items to help them get the better of the guards and their fellow thieves, such as sultry Llamas, mighty Underwear and the high-tech Cardboard Box.
Each turn you pick up new cards, move and probably try to swipe a priceless exhibit. Stealing, cracking locks and getting caught on camera will have the guards running in your direction, so hopefully you’ve picked up some handy items to deal with them…
The museum is full of Loot and priceless Rare Treasures, just waiting to fall into your swag-bag. However, they are mixed in with the Camera and Guard cards - if the next card is one of those, the Guards will close in. If you get caught, you’ll be thrown out of the museum and your ill-gotten gains confiscated. You’ll just have to break in again and steal some more!
Item cards help you with your life of crime. Disable cards deal with Cameras, a Take Down stops a Guard, and a Lure sends a Guard (or another Thief) in the wrong direction, maybe into a Booby Trap you set the turn before!
Make sure you’ve escaped with your loot before the time runs out – when the last Clock card is drawn the game is over, and the player who escapes with the most valuable loot and treasure wins.
