the Bus Game
I’m delighted to report that I’ve just released The Bus Game as an Android app to the Google Play Store.
I first developed The Bus Game back in 2016 as a prototype for my nephew. You can read about its development here: The Bus Game.
There’s also a print and play version that you can test out here: The Bus Game: Print out and Play.
And, finally, you can get all the graphics, resources and code for the app from the Unity Asset Store for $5, here: The Bus Game – Asset Store.
I hope you have as much fun playing it as I did creating it. I’d love to receive some feedback and suggestions for improvements.
The Bus Game Board
Good news, I have created a printable version of The Bus Game
for everyone to enjoy.
You can download it here: The Bus Game Print Out and Play
Download and print off the file. Then you can either cut out and stick together the playing pieces, or you can use Lego bricks for the buses and a coin for the time-track counter.
There are numbers on the top of each bus so you can use a normal six-sided die if you want.
I hope you enjoy the game. Please leave a comment to let me know how you got on!
The Bus Game final prototype
UPDATE! The Bus Game has now been released for Android on the Google Play Store. Please check it out and let me know what you think.
The Bus Game is a children’s board game of my own design.
My other half and I made a prototype (for my nephew’s birthday) by buying bits of wood off the Internet, painting them with acrylics and tester paints intended for when we finally redecorate the bedroom, then spray-varnishing them.
Players try to get the four coloured buses through the village, from one bus depot to another, before bed-time. The game is co-operative so everyone wins or loses together.
