The Game:

This page was designed to be a small playing board.
The object of the game is to reach the X by throwing the dice ball,
and moving the playing token along the white dots.
Reach the X, Get The Key, Unlock The Treasure!
I use the Rings and Daggers from the previous page as playing tokens.
The wooden embellishments I bought I use as obstacles or rewards that are
placed on the white dots.
Tips: Put a reward into the treasure chest – like a coin or sweet or
anything that would make it fun to reach the X and to unlock the chest!
My obstacles and rewards:
The pirate ship – go back to start
The pirate flag – miss a turn
The Treasure Chest – advance 3 dots
These are examples only 🙂
