BMW Board Games You Can Print and Play at Home
We wrote yesterday about how some car companies had redesigned their logos to promote social distancing. Among those brands was BMW, who have gone another step further by providing some entertainment for fans stuck at home. They put out a number of simple, printable board games that you can play at home.
They’re not the first to the game, though. Last week, Toyota UK gave us DIY papercraft models to make at home. It’s reported that Audi and Mercedes-Benz have also released colouring books too.
There’s also a good old Play Carpet. That you’re presumably supposed to print out on an A4 sized paper to have fun with somehow.
Here’s are the games and their associated rules.
THE BIG BMW RACE
The objective of the game: The first person to cross the finish line after three laps is the winner.
- Qualifying for the starting positions: Whoever rolls the highest number before the race starts can place their car on the first grid position behind the starting line. The second highest number is placed second on the grid, and so on.
- The players start the game in the order of the starting positions. Each player may roll the dice and move forward the corresponding number of spaces.
- If a player rolls a six during the race, Boost Mode is activated and they are allowed to roll the dice again.
- Several cars can be on one space at the same time.
- If you land your car on one of the risk spaces along the track, you are allowed to jump forward the given number of fields or you have to go into reverse gear and move back the given number of spaces.
- The risk space with the clock means that the player must sit out a round there until it is their turn again.
- There are two points (dirt track and pit lane) where the player has to choose one of two possible routes. While passing the two red dots, the player already has to decide which way to take. He then has to announce his choice aloud to the other players. The player themselves chooses whether to take risks and choose the shorter but riskier options, or to play it safe with the longer detour.
- The winner is the player who has crossed the finish line first after 3 laps. So don’t forget to count your laps on the lap counter!
FIND THE PAIR
First you can print the front of the paper. Then take it out of the printer, turn it around and print the backside on the same paper.
The objective of the game is to collect as many pairs as possible.
After the cards have been printed and cut out, they are placed face down on the table. Shuffle them well! Going clockwise, each player may turn over any two cards. If two identical BMW models are visible, the player may park the two cars in their garage and it is their turn again. This continues until they get two different vehicles. Then it is the next player’s turn.
PARK YOUR BMW ( 1 | 2 )
Simply print out a playing field for each player, place your BMWs on the coordinate system – without them touching! – protect your playing field from the prying eyes of your opponent and take turns guessing.
PUZZLE DUO ( 1 | 2 )
Here joy is in the details. Who is the quickest to discover which two puzzle pieces fit together, and who finds the details that are meant? Simply cut out the puzzle pieces, shuffle, and off you go!
