KILL DOCTOR LUCKY: DELUXE 19.5TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
As with previous versions, the goal of Kill Doctor Lucky 19.5 is to, well, kill Doctor Lucky. Players move around the mansion of the fortunate doctor, with one free move and being able to play Move cards to either add to their movement or jump to a room. After moving, players have two choices. If a player can't be seen by any other player or Doctor Lucky, that player can draw a card. Of if a player is in a room with Doctor Lucky and no other player can see them, the player can try to kill the Doctor, either with a basic attack (which starts at 1) or by playing a Weapon card (which are worth more points in certain rooms and add to the basic attack strength).
Going clockwise from the would-be murderer, the other players can play Failure cards to try and stop the murder. If the points of all Failure cards are less than the murder attempt, Doctor Lucky is killed and the murderer wins! If the Failure cards equal or exceed the murder attempt, the Doctor survives, all played cards are discarded, and Doctor Lucky jumps to the next-highest numbered room. Play proceeds clockwise, unless Doctor Lucky moves into a room with another player; if that happens, that player then starts.
