Don't Rock the Boat

Don't Rock the Boat
Best Family Fun
Tillywig Award Winner 2018


Don't Rock the Boat is a hugely enjoyable family game that puts a smile on kids' faces even before play commences. The boat itself is an impressively detailed 3D ship with masts, a crow's nest, and planks jutting from either side. The playing pieces are so imaginatively conceived (comically menacing penguin pirates, sea creatures, a chest of gold, a cannon, and more) that the mere sight of them produces mirth and glee. The goal on each player's turn is to place a single playing piece anywhere on the ship WITHOUT rocking the boat and causing one or more pieces to fall off. The ship is balanced atop a pole, its stability increasingly precarious with each player's turn. The size, shape and weight of each piece varies, making players' attempts at balance and counterbalance all the more unpredictable. When the ship finally tips enough that pieces tumble off, the last player to have successfully set a playing piece aboard is the winner! For 2 to 4 players. Includes 3 -Piece Ship with Masts and Planks, 2-Piece Water Wave, 16 Playing Pieces, and super-easy to learn rules.
