Re: [Chrononauts] alternate method of play

I played a version my cousin came up with once:

Chrononauts: Speed draw.

Each player has an ID and draws one card to start.  The only way to win is
to match your ID baseline and go home.

On your turn, you draw a card and play it.  If you can't play it, then you
discard it.  If there are no cards left in the draw pile, then reshuffle the
discard pile as the new draw pile.  Each player takes a turn going around
the table until someone goes home or the universe collapses via paradox.  We
played it and it was fun but it was rather boring to get started since there
was a lot of drawing and discarding.

Also, I had thought of trying out a variant where everyone had two ID cards
and you had to work to get them both home but this could be hard to do since
some of the IDs overlap a little bit.  :)

This sounds like a great variant, perhaps the boardgame version of
Chrononauts with all the cardsets, time machine pieces, time traveller
figures, etc.
