Q: I am the GM player here to ask whether I can do fourth times of the “End is Night Roll” to win the game using the original GM deck with only three “End is Night roll” cards.

  • A: I believe you cannot do fourth time roll with only three cards.

Nope. A very complex D&D type game with too many parts and pieces. Our family loves games and this one just wasn’t for us.

Way too complicated for kiddos and even adults. I absolutely love the Goonies and really wanted this game to be fun. It ended up being frustrating and something we didn’t finish.

Hoping for a fun game to do with kids, this is not it. It is quite complicated. It may get better as you get to know each role and can really apply strategy, but as it stands, the first play with a family of 4 took about 2.5 hours. We really wanted to like this game, but unless you already know how to play it, few will be patient enough to learn it.

Goonies on vacation - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
I loved The Goonies as a kid in the 80s and bought this game to play with my children ages 5, 7 and 10. I don’t understand the reviews saying that the game is too complex. You have to read the rulebook and then you have to follow the rules. It’s not a short game like Parcheesi, checkers or Sorry. It takes about 60-90 minutes to play through an adventure but it is captivating and even my 5 year old (who was also coloring half the time) remained captivated by the suspenseful way that the turns play out. Set aside an evening, not just 10 minutes. The setup requires one person to act as the Goondocks master and for younger children this should probably be a parent. I could imagine that if the game were just handed to children they might have a hard time with the division of responsibilities. My family made some mistakes and forgot a few rules the first time but nothing that would ruin the game. Here’s a very useful tip another reviewer left that really helped me: If you’re playing with kids, don’t bring them to the table until after the pieces are punched out, you’ve thoroughly read the instruction manual and the first adventure, and the board is all set up. The artwork is amazing. The adventures are very well written out with detailed instructions for each one that give specific scripts to follow depending on how the players choose to play through. Even the responsible person acting as Goondocks master can “win” if they play aggressively and defeat all the Goonies. There is a lot of choice in this game and flexibility to help cater the challenge for different ages. My kids hadn’t seen the Goonies beforehand but they loved this game. We’ve played through 4 of the 9 adventures during our summer vacation and the children have been begging for more.

Loved it! We had Legit D&D players playing with us though- so they made it easy for our entry level players. One person has to be the family and they play against the goonies. For it to be fun you need at least 4 people. We played with 5. It takes a play through to work out the kinks and then game 2 you should be good to go. Watch the YouTube videos before hand. Waaaaattttchhh. The. Youtuuuuube. Videooooos.

I was so excited when I saw this game in Target! We were looking for fun 2 player games to play for our date nights. Well, as others have mentioned, there are a million pieces and it takes forever to set everything up. Also, this is NOT for 2 players in my opinion. One would have to play by themselves as the other one is the master person (forgot what they call it) and creates the game for the one playing. So if you’re considering for 2 people, I would not recommend it. And after spending forever getting the pieces out and ready, and reading the different instructions, and then looking up YouTube videos that didn’t help, we gave up. At least I drowned my disappointment in a few glasses of wine while my husband kept trying to read the directions. The next date night, we just watched the actual movie. Way better!

My husband and I grew up in the 90s loving the Goonies, and our kids aged 10, 8, 5 have watched it a bunch and love it, too! So it was a no-brainer to get this for them for Christmas and to use for family game night. Let me just say, this game is far from a no-brainer. Set up of the 8 millions pieces took an hour, then we spent another hour reading over the instructions and adventure book while the kids impatiently whines in our ears, and still had no idea how to get going. We gave up and packed it all up. I wouldn’t suggest even trying to play this with kids under 10 (and for the record, the box does say 12+) and even that might be pushing it. If you plan to open this game for a game night, be sure to do so hours beforehand to account for setup and the ridiculously confusing instructions. As for us, we’ll try it again in a few years. :(

This game has to be played by someone whom played D&D. We tried to play this game. It took us about 1 hour to read the directions over & over again. And we still did get it. Then I went on YouTube and watch a few videos on how to play. We still did not get it. We are gonna have my husband see if he can figure it out. If he can’t then we are definitely going to take it back to Target.

Bought on a family vaca impulsively because, well, Goonies! Excited to get home, shocked but optimistic when punching out and setting up. Two hours later… laughing at how five 30yr olds couldn’t be confused more as we proceeded to puzzle piece the one million game tokens back on the punch card stock. We still joke about it today.

This is a fun game! We played with a group of four and had a good time. The game board and all of the tokens are solid. The miniatures are a lot of fun. What I really enjoyed is that one person controls the bad guys and the other players are the Goonies. This makes for a fun game as when you play again, you can take on different roles. The game play is fun and we all had a blast playing. I do suggest reading all of the instructions through first to minimize confusion. There is a nice quick reference guide provided that is in the form of One-Eyed Willie's treasure map that is quite handy. Having the Goonies movie on in the background is also quite fun. Recommended.

This is beyond a strategy games, this is D&D level stuff. This is MENSA level. I got this for my husband for his brother's weekend and they stopped playing because it was too complex for a night of fun.

Being a child of the 80s made this game so much fun! We just watched the movie recently so we were stoked to play. It does take a little bit of effort to learn how to play. We watched a youtube explainer video to understand the gameplay. Once you get the basics down it's a lot easier to play a game. It has great replayability and each game lasts about an hour. The first game will take much longer. Overall it is super fun especially if you love the Goonies from your childhood.
