Here’s a game that goes in real time, but still keeps the numbers of actions the same for all players, even though no one is waiting for turns. That’s quite nice, and utilizes no less than 8 sand timers to function.

This game is by Tobias Stapelfeldt and from Stronghold Games, or Eggerspiele and Pegasus Spiele in parts of Europe.

You’re on a quest for riches! You’ve been lucky and secured a whole lot of gems in an ancient temple. Suddenly, everything starts to collapse. You’ve been too greedy. To survive, you need to turn back the gems you’ve taken before the temple crumbles on top of you. Time is running out. Literally. Like, you have 10 minutes exactly to win the game – together.
