Animal Race Board Game
Animal Race is an exciting racing game where you select an animal, choose your preferred route and roll the correct number of dice to move along the chosen track. There are various icons on the board with each one providing a different outcome and you can change lane on route when a gap appears.
You aim to pick up carrots along the way and finishing in the top 3 earns you more carrots as a reward. But don’t worry! If you come last you are still rewarded with a carrot. The player with the most carrots after 2 races wins; there are two sides to the board for a unique competitive race.
We all like a twist! During the game carrots provide options and allow you to make your own decisions. With each lane requiring a set number of dice to be rolled, you must decide which dice to use from the available ones rolled. By rolling the ? icon you are given 2 options; pick up a carrot token or roll the mystery dice. Players may also use their carrot tokens to either propel themselves forward 3 spaces or move an opponent back 2 spaces. The choice is yours!
