April 14, 1912. A cold night in the Atlantic. An errant iceberg, a titanic cruise ship, and one very lucky old man.

Doctor Lucky is a charismatic and well-repected philanthropist in this many-years-before prequel to Kill Doctor Lucky. Of course, you secretly hate the old bastard, and you can't wait to kill him someday. But killing him aboard a sinking ship would be pointless, especially when you're probably about to die.

So you've decided to save his life instead, and do it while somebody else is looking. That way, even if you go down with the ship, you'll at least go down in history. Isn't that what life is all about-

Game Synopsis: Everyone wants to save Doctor Lucky. Players move around the ship looking for helpful items and trying to save the old man while someone else is looking. Trying to save Doctor Lucky is pretty easy, but just like in the last game, every other player can play Failure cards to stop you. And don't take too long. If the ship sinks, everybody loses! Save Doctor Lucky is a quirky twist on the original game with clever illustrations and a sinking ship for a board. Illustrated by Damon Brown.

If you've played Kill Doctor Lucky, the original Cheapass Game, you're already familiar with most of the mechanics of this game. But be warned: there are subtle changes that make all the difference. What's more, there's an extra set of penalty rules just for you!

Players: 3–7 – age 10+
Playing Time: 40 minutes
