Description

You only need a few minutes to imagine yourself in the heart of Amazonia. It’s hot, wet and noisy. Your mission : find precious objects lost during the crash of flight 217 to Chicago.

The place is filled with snakes, wild animals and terrible dangers. The jungle is full of perils and you are not alone. Three rival teams were sent there in pursuit of the same goal.

The helicopter just droped you in the jungle. You have your reflexes and your team mates to fulfill your mission and get out of there. In 17 minutes sharp, the helicopter will come back to the same location, to exfiltrate your team. Some of you may not make it back home. The others must do their best to gather as many treasures as possible !

SQUAD SEVEN is a free adapctaiton of the adventures of Indiana Jones and all the heroes of our childhood, who bravely faced incredibles perils in strange lands. Players will lead a team of 7 adventurers during a 17 minutes mission.

The sound track included in the box will give the rythm of the game. Players flip cards. Under those cards, there are treasures… and dangers awainting to be unveiled and fought against.

You will also find accesories in the box, a gun with sleeping darts, targets… Sometimes you will need to use your feet (not included) or the table (not included).

How did I create the game?

The creation of SQUAD SEVEN was a long and thrilling adventure.

I always wanted to create games that provided an intense and original experience. The first idea was to use a sound track to give the tempo of the game.

I am a huge fan of brasilian music and in 1992 I created CARNIVAL, a game with a sound track. The idea of the game was to gather musicians, dancers, drummers to open a school of samba. It was a board game and it was the first step towards SQUAD SEVEN.

As years went by, I tried many themes (Mission Impossible, Barcelone olympic games, Disco-Funk…) to eventually create Explorers, a huge boardgame, full of accessories.

Then one day, I made up my mind : I decided to make a card game in the Indiana Jones spirit. I called it INFRAGA JONES and the prototype had a huge success. Thanks to Phlippe des Pallières, I signed a contract with Foxmind and the game came out as SQUAD SEVEN. The game won the Game of the Year award 2004 in France.

It was my second game awarded in France (The first one was DRAGON DELTA in 2001).

A free version of SQUAD SEVEN 2 is available in the downloads section of the site. It’s a more hectic version of the game, and takes place in a temple lost in the sands of north Soudan

SQUAD SEVEN eventually got a new life with IELLO in 2015 under the name PINGO PINGO.
