Zero is a fun board game where scoring the least is best. Each player must answer a series of questions and try to get the least number of points by choosing the answer that is the least popular. Zero is recommended for ages 8 to 12 years. It’s a game that is great for encouraging the opposite stance, and it’s also a great way to teach children about the importance of giving the least popular answer.
There are many mechanics to the board game Zero, including bonus spaces. A bonus space is a space that remains unoccupied after a player moves. Players who land on a bonus space play a bonus round. They are given a question to answer, and they must guess the least common answer. The player who answers correctly moves backward a certain amount of spaces. A player can only participate in a bonus round once, so it’s important to get it right the first time.
Zero also allows players to take on the role of monster robots, which hunt down their prey. These robots have the ability to choose from three maps, and they have access to three event cards. As they move on the board, they can sneak past their enemies or distract them. They can also craft to gain back three of their discarded cards. And they can even attack!
