Hare & Tortoise Board Game
The Hare & Tortoise board game is something of a legend. A family board game of skill and wisdom, a round of Hare & Tortoise will be the greatest 60 minutes of fun you will ever experience sitting around a table!
It's a cleverly designed race to the finish in which your fuel (carrots) must practically run out (all but 10 carrots or fewer) before you hit the finish line. You also have three lettuce cards you must spend during the course of the race. The further you move, the more carrots you spend, and there are a variety of ways to gain or lose carrots as you go around the track. It's a very clever exercise in arithmetic which we have fashioned into an cunning, entertaining and unique perennial favourite.
The concept is simple: each turn you can move like the hare or the tortoise. You pick how fast you go - one space, a dozen, twenty - whatever you want. You can even move backwards! Provided you have enough carrots, of course - it takes energy to move forward, and carrots give you energy.
So, will you Hare off at the start or plod like a Tortoise, slowly and steadily around the board catching those Hares as they pit stop?
