A Classic Style Family Board Game – I’m Home

A classic style family board game - I'm Home

A classic style family board game

I’m Home is a fun board game! The first individual or team to get their pawns home first wins but there will be challenges on the way.

I’m Home keeps everybody involved, often resulting in close and noisy finishes. I suggest you don’t play this in a library!

It’s easy to learn and fun to play with 2 to 4 players, age 5+, individually, or in team.  Note: The most fun we have had is playing 4 players, 2 per team and 2 pawns each. When playing in teams (2v2) strategy will play a part in which team wins.

Depending on how many play and whether you choose 1 or 2 pawns each, a game can last from 15 – 45 minutes.

Game Contents

  • 1 Gameboard
  • 8 Pawns
  • 4 Coloured dice
  • 1 Calico storage bag
  • 4 page rule pamphlet

The Fun Begins

Start playing i'm Home board game here On your marks, get set, go! Remember no 2 pawns can share the same space. You will have to leapfrog them, maybe over 2 or more. What will you do now? Land on a Question Mark and choose to roll the dice or not. Roll it and you are at risk of going back which might even be okay.

Short Cut Short Cut is your friend. Hop the hedge and get that little bit closer to the finish! Long Cut Long Cut is not your friend, however there is one Long Cut that could be very helpful to you. How will I know? You will find out when the time comes.
SWAP The SWAP zone can be quite crazy at times. SWAP with any pawn ahead of you (unless they are in the Safe Zone). Remember you could still be swapped back just as quickly, but you might get the chance to SWAP again! Big Tip: Don’t let a pawn get too far ahead or they could escape the challenging SWAP zone.
Gameboard,4 dice, 8 pawns, protective calico bag and rules book

NOTE: I considered a traditional box for the game but costs for a printed game box would have made it too expensive. 

Using the calico bag keeps the product and freight cost down.
