I had so much fun putting this together! Then Stuart and I tried it out and got REALLY into playing it. We had to settle for best game of three when Stuart's canoe kept sinking in the first round.

My web designer, Dan, just put it up on my mini website for my new picture book, When Titus Took the Train, launching Oct 7. You can download a printable version here! The boardgame gives lots of tasters of Titus' upcoming big railway adventure.

You can use regular markers and a die, but in case you don't have them or want to make your own, I've included some cut-and-paste templates along with the rule sheet. I hope you like it! Let me know if you played it (and maybe coloured it!), I'd love to hear how it went!

Edit: Thanks to a good friend for catching a spelling mistake in this version! I'll hopefully have the fixed version up by tomorrow! (Ok, it's fixed now! Thank you, Dan, you're the best!)

OMG! You should totally get someone to make that game and have it come with free chocolate bars.

(And I love the little legs on the markers - so cute!)

That game looks amazing!

but you'd be better putting a glue tab on every other dice side. as it is the glue will make a 1 much more likely than a six to come up!

Thanks so much! I got a bit obsessive making it, so much fun. :D

Ooh, that is a good point about the dice. Thanks!

Hah, you know what this game lacks ? A railway company employee who sends you to a train that doesn't stop at your station !

That would be a very good addition! In fact, I'm going to post a blank game template and I hope people have a go at recreating it with full-blown irony. ;)

Also, it reminds me of the board game that Bandon Graham (royalboiler) included in issue 9 of King City :

Here's the game, and here the issue cover where you can cut off more markers...
