Hello Cop’s Corner players! Today I am going to cover some of the play including neutral locations, dispatch and car stop cards, corner positions, and bomb squad. But first I would like to remind you the rules are on this website, printed in the game, and on the back of the box.
Play starts at the police station which is a neutral location, or no action. Other neutral locations on the board are briefing, and code 7 (break time to eat). The blue dispatch location corresponds to drawing that card. For dispatch, you spin the spinner to match either a gun or handcuff on the card and spinner to promote a rank. (Be advised, you may have to pop the spinner off and snap it together to loosen it up from manufacturing.) The car stop locations correspond with that card. As with police work, there are three options. Warning means no action. Ticket means you collect a coin. Arrest means you move your piece to the jail location and collect a jail card. If you have a jail card, you collect a coin. If you land on the corner with a gold badge, you spin for the gold badge to promote. If the spinner landed on say, crime scene, you move your piece to crime scene location and collect that card. Again, if you already have the card, you collect a coin. Bomb squad, everyone moves their piece to the center of the board. The landing player rolls one time for the number totaling seven. If the landing player rolls seven, that player receives a coin from every other player. If another player does not have a coin to pay, the bank covers for that player and that player has to pay the bank back on the next earned coin. If the landing player doesn’t roll a seven, the next player in turn gets to try one time to roll for seven, and so on… When someone rolls seven and collects coins from the other players, all players return to the police station. The player who rolled seven continues play.
I hope you are enjoying this great police game. If you don’t have it yet, don’t wait! Tell a friend too and have some fun. It’s a good feeling to win the Chief of Police (or play for Top Cop, see the rules). Until next time, build some play time, fun and people connection into your day! Paul
