Product Description

Let the fun begin! Now anyone can participate in this crazy, two-player race, from the starting hole to the home row, far away on the other side of the board. What everyone hopes for is nice, large numbers (determined by a roll of the dice) to carry your peg swiftly and harmlessly around your track, ahead of your opponent. But what each player dreads are the holes that go all the way through the board, dropping your racing peg into the dungeon-like storage box and, sadly, out of the game. All that's left to do then is grab another of your six pegs and start again - back at the beginning.

Because this is a game of chance and very little strategy is required, it's an awesome game for younger kids. What's more, there's a dot on the yellow pegs, so it's easy for blind players to distinguish the yellow team from the blue. Complete with one of our large, tactile dice, and a snug, wooden box to keep the game pieces in, this all-wood game is sure to be a hit for the whole family!

How to Play Racing Crown

Directions courtesy of Future Aids, The Braille Superstore.

For two players.

Object of the Game. Your goal is to race a peg clear around your track, hoping to avoid getting captured in the process. If you are lucky enough to make it to your winning row, you win the game!

Play. To start, place your first peg in the hole at the bottom-right of the board. Then roll the dice, and move your peg the number of spaces shown on the dice. Your first turn is over, and it's time for the other player to do the same.

Sound easy? Be careful - there's a surprise waiting for you! Every so often, there are drop-off points along each track. If you land in one of these holes, your peg will drop through the board and out of sight. when that happens, you have to grab another peg and start again ... back at the beginning.

Winning the Game. If you are lucky enough to be the first to race a peg all around the board and into your home row, you win the game. But you should also keep in mind that, if you're having particularly bad luck and lose all six of your pegs before your opponent does, you automatically lose the game!
