"Gears of Time" came in a beautifully crafted box that instantly gave us the steampunk feel. The box included instructions on 4 different types of challenges, a pair of steampunk goggle, a deck of cards, 40 smaller game cards, 10 wooden gears, a timer and a dice. The items were all made with top quality.
The game was set in the year 1868. As world's top scientist and inventor, our mission was to finish our time machine, travel through time to find the evil Dr. Charles Delphinium and stop him from taking over the world.
The four challenges were all different in its own way but the goal was the same: to bring back sweet memories of the couples' past. It as really nice to step away from the puzzle type of games for awhile and build on our 'quality time" together. You definitely don't realize how much you're missing out on each other's lives with a busy schedule. Our favorite challenge was "Flirting With History". We were laughing so hard to come up with pickup lines for each other. We are definitely "out of the game". Some games got us thinking about our past travels and wonderful moments with our friends and family. During this quarantine time period, memories are all we got. It was also great to learn things we never knew about each other after 7 years of marriage. Although you should definitely be careful not to mix in an "ex" girlfriend/boyfriend's memories into the game. It could get ugly!
We will definitely replay this game again sometime in the near future as we believe "quality time" is very important in a relationship and you should definitely cherish these moments.
