Dive into the world of Bikini Bottom with SpongeBob SquarePants and the rest of the gang to recruit Friends, complete food orders, and keep evil Plankton away from stealing the Krabby Patty secret formula in SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton Rising, available now from The Op!
As we’ve seen on TV, The Krusty Krab is bustling with customers ordering up their favorite menu items. But the town’s tiny villain is on his endless mission to figure out the restaurant’s best-kept secret, so it’s time to work together to guard all of its ingredients!
In this cooperative card and dice game, players can choose their favorite character among SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick Star, Squidward Tentacles, and Mr. Krabs to strategize and complete seven orders before Plankton carries out his plans. With each move he makes, Friends grow impatient and leave the restaurant, so keep them fed and happy! If you lose too many, business will sink, or if Plankton ends up with all six ingredients, that’s the end of the game!
Start in either the Dining Room or the Kitchen, and depending on who you’re playing, your dice pool gives you better odds at rolling the needed Friendship, Effort, Teamwork, and Fun to meet your objectives. Stack away food orders or add valuable Friends to your team whose abilities give you a helping hand! Gary and Sandy Cheeks are just a couple you’ll find at your service, while Villains like Bubble Bass and DoodleBob will assist Plankton in derailing your progress. When the Theft counters are full on each Krabby Patty ingredient, they are flipped over to reveal a digitized version, meaning Plankton’s already working on analyzing it in his lab!
Stay focused on your goal even while you’re playing under the watch of a 120mm “tall” custom-sculpted Plankton figure, defiantly challenging you from his iconic Chum Bucket. Also included are 10 Friend Dice, 6 double-sided Krabby Patty ingredient tiles, 4 team tokens, 30 Spatula tokens, 30 Theft counters, 60 Time counters, 48 Krusty Krab Cards, 4 Team Home Base Cards, and 18 Plankton Actions Cards, all themed for fans who can’t get enough SpongeBob!
It’s a push-and-pull battle against time that takes luck and strategy to satisfy appetites and overpower the one-eyed antagonist. You’ll also find Rules to accommodate a single-player mode for those who want to go it alone. Keep Bikini Bottom harmonious by protecting its neighborhood hotspot and spoil the conniving Plankton’s plans until he tries again!
