To be the first game to get 5 men into his boat.
4 x 8 pieces, "men"
three-dimensional playing board depicting 4 docks.
It is a very simple out of print game. There is not die, cards, etc. Men move a square at a time, or jump other men in order to reach the boat of the same color which is waiting at one of the 4 docks.
What makes the game fun to play, is the fact that every time a player gets a man into his boat he changes the docking positions of all the boats, by moving clockwise to the next dock, so that all players find themselves in new situations.
Children learn the importance of waiting on the dock rather than running after your boat.. and keep MISSING THE BOAT !!!
