Phantom 2040 Spanish Board Game Review

2020 will likely see two new Phantom games produced and released to the public with the "Treasures of Drakon" Board Game produced by Frew Games and "The Phantom: Card Game" by Mikael Lyck. On the back of this I have reviewed the Spanish Phantom 2040 Board Game including a translation of the rules for when you play the game at home.


Note: In translating the text for this game, Google Translate was used. As such, some of the translation may not be 100% correct. Words in brackets [] I have added to make the translation run better and may not be an exact translation.


Three years ago we did a general review of all Phantom games including this game but this is a full in depth review including the translated instructions. You can watch the original Phantom Games Review Video at the bottom of this article.

RULES OF THE GAME:


You start counting from box 1 and you will advance as many boxes as points roll [of] the dice, but you have to observe the characteristics of the following rules:


A) The color boxes (8 red, 22 blue, 34 yellow, 46 green and 62 pink) are bridge boxes and when they are occupied by two tokens, they close the way to other later tokens.


B) The scope of one card per bid in the WHITE boxes forces the first to start a new business from the OUTPUT box. [this must be incorrectly translated as it makes no sense]


C) The boxes with the SKULL (Nos 68, 76 and 85) are “advance boxes” and may coincide with two or more Records.


Box No 8: KIT WALKER 18-year-old university student who uses PHANTOM equipment to go unnoticed. You will take turns without pulling. [Take turns without rolling]

Box No 62: BRIDGE BOX. You will be two shifts without throwing [Miss two turns]


Box No 68: SKULL. Box gives the "GOOD BRAND," [GOOD MARK] is one of the advance boxes and takes you to the next square of the "SKULL" No. 76


Box No 76: SKULL. Another advance box, which allows you to jump directly to box No. 85:


Box No 85: The "GOOD BRAND," [GOOD MARK] last of the "SKULL" advance boxes, if you arrive at this box by means of the dice score [roll] gives you direct access to the "FINAL BOX" No. 93 of Dr. JACK and you would be the "WINNER."
