As a time agent in Thompson Industries’ Time Control, players must do their best to achieve dominance over time itself. They can cause chaos in the lives of other agents by warring on their individual boards, strategizing and maneuvering over beautifully detailed landscapes. Two to four players ages 12 and up compete to be ahead of their own time, but they must be careful because moves can be made by any player almost every step of the way. – Melissa Kaplan

TDmonthly Review:

The world will end in five minutes. A top scientist must gather his agents and send them back into the past in order to destroy his enemies and save the future. Is this a new summer Hollywood blockbuster? A state-of-the-art video game, perhaps? Thompson Industries’ (ToyDirectory) intensive new board game Time Control is for fans of time travel and serious gaming.

Using individual boards that depict various time periods—Today, Yesteryear and Distant Past—each player moves to attack his or her opponents on the various planes using time-traveling agents such as Scientists and Brawlers.

Once a player has developed three or more “problems” in a particular time-period, due either to attacks on the agents or simple acts of “fate,” he or she has lost the ability to control time there. The last player to remain with at least one agent intact is the winner, and can claim to have saved the future.
