Par for the Course is designed to be a fun family game where your goal is to build miniature golf holes and then play through them getting the lowest score possible. The game can either be played competitively, as a solo game, trying to beat par or as co-op game trying to collectively beat par.
This is a tile board game for 2-6 players.
The game ends after either 9 or 18 holes.
The winner is the player with the lowest score.
Each turn tiles are used to build a miniature golf hole made up of a starting tile, 6-8 course tiles and a hole tile.
72 square tiles
8 Character cards
40 putting cards
6 golf ball tokens
1 golf score pad
Building: To build a golf hole each player will have a pool of 7 tiles to choose from that other players cannot see. From there the tee off tile get placed and players take turns laying down tiles to a total of 6-8 depending on the number of players. Finally, the hole tile is placed.
Characters: Each player will use a different character that has their own deck of 5 cards to help them putt the ball.
Putting: To putt, the player rolls 1D6 and then plays up to 2 of the cards from their character deck. They then take that total and they “Count” the tiles to see where their ball lands.
Tiles: Each tile has a different value from -3 all the way up to +6. To get throw a tile the player’s putting score (1D6 + the cards they play) must equal or exceed that value. Once they player’s ball reaches a tile that they cannot beat, the ball stops there.
