Portal: The Uncooperative Cake Acquisition Game
Best Video Game-Inspired Board Games
You’ve been told most of your life that the cake is a lie, but what if we told you that wasn’t the case. In this board game created by the folks who designed the original Portal video game, you are tasked with collecting as much cake as possible to win.
You’ll be tasked with conducting experience for Aperture Laboratories once again. You and your loyal test subjects will make their way through this grueling and ever-changing test labs to try and acquire the most amount of cake.
Using portals, Companion Cubes, and turrets, you’ll try to outlive the other players and their test subjects. Beware because death lurks around every corner and you might lose all of your test subjects in the name of scientific progress.
In this procedurally generated board game, it’s all about solving puzzles for the greater good of science and getting rewarded with cake. Do you have what it takes to outthink your opponents?
Portal: The Uncooperative Cake Acquisition Game supports 2-4 players and has a run time of about 45 minutes. Which makes it great for a small gathering of friends and family.
