A new game!

My husband developed this game and did the wood burning on the little wooden box. It is similar to "Mille Bournes" (the French car game) but of course, it is the French RUNNING game of Parkour! He's been learning some Parkour and the real movements used in parkour are what he's made to over come the obstacles in the game. Then you lay down "run" cards with a number of 5, 10, 20, or 40 and the race ends when someone reaches a certain distance (for three people it's 175.)
Game content is on the bottom of the box...
And the rules fold up and fit into the lid of the little box. He's great at the developing and logic of designing the game and I add the final professional touches that make it look "real"... we'll be selling this game in a month at the Lavender festival along with my artwork. The game will be about $15 (which is a GREAT deal considering that we are the ONLY people you can buy this from AND it comes in a personalized wooden box.. so cool.)
There you can see some of the images on the cards. Youssef did all the art on his computer to create the cards.
We use "momentum chips" that can be spent during the game that don't come with the game... just about 20 pennies. Might as well put those coins to good use right?

There's enough strategy and logic in this game that I really enjoy it and there's enough of a story and a fun time playing that it fits Youssef's style of game play as well. I still beat him more often than not (-insert evil laughter here-), but that goes without saying (only I just said it.. -insert evil laughter again-) Anyway, as you can see.. we're having a lot of fun with this!

I think the game sounds great! What a good idea! One of these days all this creativity is going to pay off well, I just believe it!

After finally playing a little game of Mille Bornes, I'm certain now that my game is the superior one.
