Is your Liverpool knowledge proper Boss or are you a plazzy Scouser blagging it?
Who's the biggest know all in yours and who's just a divvy melt?
Find out with Liverpool's newest board game
The Liverpool Taxi Board Game contains 600 local history and general knowledge questions about Liverpool, and just like driving a taxi, the better your knowledge, the better the tips, the more you earn. When your fare ends, answer a question on Liverpool to gain a tip.
Taxi drivers have an opinion on every subject, 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.
