Paper Route - A Cardboard Arcade Game

Paper Route Box Top.

Paper Route is an analog re-creation of classic video game action. You will be scrambling to press buttons to complete combinations, only you will be using cards instead of a video game controller. Your goal is to deliver papers, avoid danger, and vandalize houses better, and faster than your opponent.

There are no turns in Paper Route. At the start of a round five houses are paired with five obstacles. Together, they form a sequence of buttons that you must play in order to score points. Once both players agree, the round begins and you flip cards, one at a time, from the top of yor deck and play them on a house. The faster you can play, the better... but be careful! If you mess up, you lose a life and if you lose all your lives, your opponent wins!
