Overstocked is a 1-6 player spatial puzzle game in which you are trying to fill up your warehouse with toys from the 1990s without exceeding demand. It will launch on Kickstarter on June 8.
In Overstocked, each player starts with a hand of 6 crate cards. The cards feature crates of popular '90s toys such as Furbies, yo-yos and Pocket Petz arranged in a 2x3 grid. One card from the main Crate deck is placed in the middle of the table, to start the Popularity display, and one more card from the main deck is placed in front of each player to start their Warehouse.
On each turn, you will choose one card from your hand to play in either the Popularity or your Warehouse. The card you play must be placed in such a way as to cover one or two crates on a previously played card, and it should not cover a worker icon.
After 6 rounds, the game ends and you proceed to scoring. For each toy, you find the number of matching crates in the largest connected area in your Warehouse and in the Popularity, and multiply the results. From the score you get, you must deduct the toy with the largest connected area in the Popularity (meaning that the demand for this toy has peaked, and you won't be able to sell so much stock). The player with the most points wins. Solo rules have not been revealed yet.
