AVENTYR - The Mountain Bike Edition

Welcome to 'Northman Board Games'.

Here, we present the game that started it all off.

It's only been 23 years in the making...

This is the first of our AVENTYR series - 'The Mountain Bike Edition'.

Do you like Mountain Bikes and cycling?
Here’s a board game designed with you in mind…

You are a keen mountain biker and have entered a mountain bike orienteering event. Dotted around the hills are checkpoints with varying points values. You have a set amount of time in which to plan your route, ride your bike through those hills, collect as many points as possible then return to the start/finish area. Once everyone has finished, the person with the most points wins.

However, there are many obstacles out there that might just hinder your progress. You might have a puncture or snap your chain. You might lose your map or be slowed by thick sticky mud. A trail marshall might stop you going along a particular trail but, conversely, you might find a smooth downhill section to speed you on your way or a fellow competitor tells you of a shortcut to save you time…

There are many twists and turns providing fun and laughter along the way. 

You don’t need to know anything about bikes or cycling to play it. 

The rules are easy to read and understand and it can be played by 1 person (record your score, play again and try to beat that score) or as many people as you can get around the board.

It has been designed as a game for adults but it’s also very suitable for kids of about 8 years and above. Because it’s quite fast moving, it does seem to hold the attention of young ones well.

The artwork on the board has some interesting and sometimes unexpected things to look at.

A 40 turn game takes about 20 minutes per person to play, a 30 turn game about 15 so it’s not long and tedious like some board games.

Contained within each box is a game board, 20 game play cards, 6 coloured counters, 2 x 6 sided dice, 1 x 4 sided dice and 1 x 20 sided dice.

Important note The ‘How to play’ sheets and the score / turn recording sheets are not included within the box. These are necessary to play the game but, happily, they are available to download free of charge by clicking on the links you see below.

You are most welcome to download these before you buy to see how easy the game is to play and to make sure that it’s suitable for your needs.

Being less expensive than a mediocre meal out for two, you’ll find that buying this game will be money well spent as it will provide many occasions where family and friends sit around a table to play, chat and laugh with each other.

It’s time to reconnect with people…

Now, where’s the pizza delivery number…?
