Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus GAME! Sneak Peek!

A great package was delivered to the studio recently, our first copy of University Games upcoming DON'T LET THE PIGEON DRIVE THE BUS GAME!


It was a thrill to get to play with a project that I've been working on for such a long time.


The board is a city street scene, and you get to drive a bus!


Your job is to collect 4 tokens from various stores on the board...




using this spinner:



But watch out for the Pigeon, because if he catches you, you have to go back to start! (your opponents get to move the Pigeon if the spinner points to the Pigeon during their turn).


Once you've got your tokens, the first to get to the Bus Depot wins!


Immediately after the package arrived, the Willems clan had a go:


I lost.

Then we drove the buses around the street like crazy people and had a 3 bus pile up.

It was great fun!

I hope you'll enjoy it when you play it.

DON'T LET THE PIGEON DRIVE THE BUS GAME! should be hitting the shelves of your favorite toy shop by end of August.

Huzzah!

And as long as we're showing sneak peeks; here's a look at an upcoming documentary that I was interviewed for. It's chock-full of pals:




And to top it off, here's some press:

A nice review of CITY DOG COUNTRY FROG and the fantastic continuing saga of Library Lemonade Lad!
