Asmodee unveils SETUP, a game of tiles and tactics

Asmodee and Bezzerwizzer Studio have unveiled a brand new game titled SETUP, hitting stores worldwide on April 1st. SETUP is desired as a tile-based spin on rummy, and it’s a perfect game for players of all ages. In SETUP, you have to build sets of colors or numbers, but you have to pay attention to the board at all times, because it constantly creates new opportunities for completing sets. You can stack and traverse sets, and then there are the bonus squares that also add multi-player scoring opportunities. You can view SETUP in the images below.

“One of our missions as a team is to bring people together with new take on traditional games – and this for all ages,” said Birgitte Bülow, CEO of Bezzerwizzer Studio. “Putting a new spin on classics like rummy is a great way to bring families together. We know rummy fans will love the new twists and mechanics, like introducing tiles with an extra color and a clear board-based scoring system These changes simply make SETUP as fun and easy to get started for new players as it is for established card game fans!”

Below you will find the official description and main features of SETUP, and above you will also find an overview of the game.

SETUP is simple: players combine colors and numbers on card-like tiles to earn points. Placement is key, as players can make combinations in any direction or even stack tiles to throw off an opponent. A single tile placement can score points yield on multiple sets as it stretches in different directions, but players must be careful not to help their opponents make their own sets!SETUP is playable with 2-4 players in a free-for-all battle, or in a 2v2 team mode, offering an exciting set-building showdown for the whole family.

Pick Up and Play: With a blazingly fast 25 minute game time and simple rules, replacing cards and complex scorekeeping with colorful tiles and a game board makes SETUP fun for all ages.

Keep your eyes on the board: SETUP makes the rummy genre captivating at every turn. Players must watch the available combinations change as opponents stack and build criss-cross sets.

Unexpected Bonuses: Bonus squares add an extra twist of strategy to SETUP. Each player has two bonus squares, on which only they can place tiles. Other players can make sets with tiles from a bonus square, but both the tile placer and the owner of the bonus square score points.

Multiple Game Modes: SETUP supports 2-4 players and 2v2 team play. The 2v2 mode adds a fun layer of collaborative strategy and is great for parents playing with kids.”

SETUP will hit stores on April 1 for $29.99. You can also pre-order it from the Asmodee store here.
