This set contains sixteen teacup playing pieces, two dice, one tiny teapot and a colourful game board measuring 30x30cm
A fun and frantic race to the finish! An entertaining game for 2-4 persons.
The first player to move their 4 teacups around the board from the start to the centre teapot wins.
Players take turns in a clockwise order; highest throw of the die starts. Each throw, the player decides which teacup to move. A teacup simply moves in a clockwise direction around the track given by the number thrown. If no teacup can legally move according to the number thrown, play passes to the next player. A throw of 6 gives another turn. A player must throw a 6 to move a piece from the starting circle onto the first square on the track (for young children, a piece may start with a throw of a 1 or a 6 to speed things up.)
The teacup moves 6 squares around the circuit beginning with the appropriately coloured start square (and the player then has another turn). If a teacup lands on a teacup of a different colour, the teacup jumped upon is returned to its starting circle. If a teacup lands upon a teacup of the same colour, this forms a block. This block cannot be passed or landed on by any opposing teacup. When a teacup has circumnavigated the board, it proceeds up the home column towards the teapot. A teacup can only be moved onto the teapot triangle by an exact throw. The first person to move all 4 pieces into the teapot triangle wins.
