Roll a 6 on the die and open or close a station of your choice, watch out for the hazards, every time you change a line you must pick one up, sending you exactly where you don’t want to go! So stoke the engines boiler and get ready for a fast and furious race around Britain’s railway networks. It’s easy to play and great fun, time and time again.
The Great Game Of Britain is a great way to learn about geography and the history of Britain and some of its famous land marks. Planning skills and how to plan a route and also how to work around obstacles.
The signal counters and the Hazard cards give you the opportunities to delay the other players. It is in your interest to delay them as much as possible and the further advanced they are in their journey, the more places they have already visited, the more they will have to be delayed. Therefore, it is only natural that players will select as their “victim” to delay the player closest to winning.
Families have enjoyed playing this game since the 1980s!
