You are one of the doctors that were just hired for the brand-new, cutting-edge Medical Center. Alongside your colleagues, you have to cooperate well to admit, diagnose and treat various patients who need your help. Combine your strengths and treat efficiently the patients arriving at hospital, but be careful, because mistakes can be of the highest value in Rush MD!
Rush M.D. is an innovative, real-time, cooperative board game that simulates the challenging and high-pressure nature of medical professions. A worker placement mechanism, using hourglasses as workers allows, but also limits, players to perform a multitude of actions. Each player handles 1 Doctor hourglass running around the hospital, admitting patients, providing immediate medical care, performing different kinds of exams as well as surgeries.
Rush M.D. was introduced through its Kickstarter campaign on July 2019 and was firstly launched in Essen Spiel '19. The game has received praise from customers and board game reviewers for its thematic adaptation of a hospital environment into a board game, being fun and engaging and requiring good communication among teammates, as well as strategy, observational and dexterity skills. However, there was obviously room for improvement in the aspects of difficulty, variability and replayability, as well as a need for more thematic ideas and more modes that could be adapted into the game.
We are very excited to present you the Rush M.D. - ICU expansion!
You and your fellow doctors have been working tirelessly treating patients all this time and you have helped your new Medical Center to acquire a good reputation and expand more!
But now, with the Medical Center opening an Intensive Care Unit and 4 new Examination Clinics, the pressure is even higher for the doctors to work together in order to save lives and treat everyone quickly but also efficiently. Can you live up to the challenge?
Rush M.D. – ICU is an expansion to the real-time, cooperative, worker placement game Rush M.D.! It introduces the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) board, where you will be required to perform electrocardiograms (ECGs), defibrillation and administer pump-infused drugs (PIDs) quickly and efficiently to save lives of critically ill or severely wounded patients! It also adds a new Medical Examinations board with 4 new thematic, dexterity mini-games to offer more choices for your game. In Rush M.D. you will also find brand new ICU patients as well as new Hospitalized patients, new objectives, and more!
Get ready to push your limits to save lives! Can you handle the pressure of ICU doctors?!
