CONVOY™ is an easy to learn card strategy table game for 2, 3, 4, 6 or 8 players, that challenge’s your use of skill & strategy (6 or 8 players split into teams of 2).
The Game is played with the board/mat, 2 full packs of cards & 50 tokens per single player or 25 if in teams.
The board/mat comprises of 2 full packs of cards with jacks and jokers removed (96 cards) and 4 roundels which act as bonus counters/tokens and as such cannot be covered with another counter/token. Bonus roundels may be re-used by all players during the course of play.
The object of the game is to form “Convoys” (lines) comprising of 4 same coloured tokens (or 3 plus a bonus roundel) in a straight line either vertically, horizontally or diagonally anywhere on the board. Once a “Convoy” is completed the tokens forming it are turned over to show the 2-tone colour (yellow dot). After this stage the tokens in the “Convoy” in question cannot be removed.
A “Convoy” may use only one token within an existing “Convoy” by crossing that “Convoy” at right angles or diagonally. It is not allowable to add onto the end of an existing “Convoy” unless a complete “Convoy” of 4 (or 3+ a bonus token/ roundel) can be formed.
The first player or team to form TWOcomplete Convoy’s wins the game.
