How does the game work?
Click on the link below for a two minute explanation or alternatively read on....
The aim is to have the last Big Granny on the bus. Each player has two Grannies - Big Granny.....
....and Little Granny
Big Granny is a passive playing piece. She just sits on the bus and gets attacked. Little Granny is the one that does all the running around. She has to collect Attack Cards to be able to attack other players Big Grannies and Defend Cards for her Big Granny to defend herself from attack. Every Attack Card has a corresponding Defend Card and some Defend Cards defend more than one attack. As shown here:
The board is a bus in the centre and a pavement on the outside. Big Grannies start on the bus in the corner squares of their colour. Each time she fails to defend an attack she is pushed one space closer to the door.....until finally she gets shoved off.
Little Grannies start on the aisle seat next to their Big Grannies. She moves on the roll of the dice; she can get on and off the bus at will and collects cards by landing on the relevant squares. To attack another players Big Granny she has to land on a space next to her. She chooses which Attack Card to play and if the other player does not have the relevant Defend Card, their Big Granny has to move one space closer to the door.
In addition there are Hazard Cards. These are a bit like 'Chance' cards in Monopoly. You play them instantly and whilst in general they will be advantageous to you, there is a reasonable chance they will work against you. That's why they are a hazard!
So - it's the last Big Granny left on the bus that is the winner. But even if your Big Granny gets pushed off, you are not out of the game. You can no longer win but you can get revenge with your Little Granny........

Risks and challenges
We have produced a number of games over the past few years and as such we have built up a wealth of experience that will allow us to avoid any potential problems. For example we use three different printers, which means we can be sure of avoiding any production delays.
In addition, we have set a modest goal of £2000 because this project is relatively advanced. The designs are completed already and as we are a professional board game company, the logistics and organisation are already in place.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
