Taxi! Board game: London Edition is a new game full of fun and knowledge for all the family!
Created by an Edinburgh black cab driver, the game was first piloted in Edinburgh and Glasgow, outselling Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit in major stores throughout Central Scotland.
It contains 600 local history and general knowledge questions about London, and just like driving a taxi, the better your knowledge, the better the tips and the more you earn. When your fare ends, answer a question on London to gain a tip.
Taxi drivers have an opinion on everything, land on one of the ‘Sound-Off’ squares and it’s your turn to sound-off like a cabbie. The ‘Sound-Off’ cards contain a hundred varied subjects. On being told the ‘Sound-Off subject’, you have 30 seconds to mention as many of the six key words printed on the card. Every key word you mention increases your takings.
Driving a shift in a taxi is a combination of luck and knowledge, turn left you may get a £5 fare turn right and you could get a £40 tour. This is reflected in the ‘Taxi Board Game’ by the ‘Give or Take’ squares. Keep the card for yourself or pass it to a fellow player.
Is your luck in? The winner is the player who has earned the most money at the end of the agreed shift time, e.g. 1 hour or 90 minutes. The person with the most money at the end of the shift is the winner.
