Ivor the Engine family board game from Surprised Stare Games
In 2014, Ivor the Engine makes a glorious return to print with the release of the Ivor the Engine family board game from Surprised Stare Games Limited.
Set in the top left-hand corner of Wales, the game is illustrated with classic artwork from the original series and new pictures drawn especially for it by original creator Peter Firmin. Players travel around the branch railway line (a wonderful new map board) clearing flocks of wooden sheep pieces that are stopping Ivor from doing his day-to-day work. For between three and five players, aged 8 years and over, the Ivor The Engine board game is easy to play and great fun whether you are already a fan of Ivor or not!
Ivor the Engine, from the legendary Smallfilms studio, is one of the most enduring children’s series in British television history; beautifully-illustrated by Peter Firmin and charmingly-written by Oliver Postgate, the books and films of Ivor’s adventures with dragons, choirs, circus elephants, sheep and snowdrifts have enchanted families for over 50 years.
The Ivor the Engine board game is being launched – and will be available to buy - at this year’s UK Games Expo (http://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk), in the NEC Hilton Metropole, Birmingham from 30th May to 1st June 2014.
