Stew Pot: a board game you can print and play

Stew Pot: The Laugh-Out-Loud Cats board game

(Guaranteed to frustrate)

Step one: click on the image, click on "all sizes" on flickr, and print it.

You will need:

2 or more players
1 six-sided die
a place marker for each player

Game play:

The player who rolls highest goes first. If there are more than 2 players, order proceeds clockwise.

Roll die and move ahead. Move or roll if prompted to, but do not follow instructions on the new space where you end up. Stay there till your next turn.

If you land on a stew ingredient, move your marker to the Stew Pot.

There are 2 ways to get out of the Stew Pot:

1. Only one player can be in the Stew Pot at a time. If you are stuck there, trade places when another player lands on any ingredient.


2. If you or another player rolls a 3, move your marker to the space marked lol. Players continue to take their turn from the stew pot, but can only be moved if they roll a 3.

The player who reaches "end" first wins.

Feel free to comment below if there are any bugs or unforeseen glitches. I've played several times now and it is very aggravating. Enjoy!

Also, if you enjoyed playing the game, consider dropping a dollar in the pot via the paypal button on the right sidebar. This is not required or even expected, but I thought it would be a tad more classy than a simple "donate" button.

Thanks for your continued support, comments, and stuff.
