Description Edit | History

From the product page (http://victorypointgames.com/details.php?prodId=189):

For years we've pondered the question: "Why did the chicken cross the road?" Well, never fear, because our very own VPG designer, Nathan Hansen, has the answer! WHY?! is a 1 to 5 player game featuring the perfectly normal, seemingly sane chickens, running headlong into traffic, causing a massive 42 car pileup! We ask you again, WHY?! What could have possibly been so important?

Each turn, players draw a card and follow the instructions to move their chicken, and either move current cars on the board or draw new ones into a random lane! Anything can happen to you as you cross this dangerous road to get to the other side.

A quick, easy to learn game, designed for children but challenging for all players!

Game Data:
Complexity: 1.5 on a 9 scale
Solitaire Suitability: 8.5 on a 9 scale
Scale: Each player plays a chicken attempting to cross the road and avoid incoming traffic
