Hitchiker Rules

Temporarily Out of Stock!

Greetings Hitchikers,

The Hitchiker Board Game is currently out of stock and I need to reload on a few components before I can make any more.

If you happen to be a board game manufacturer ... hey give me a call!!

Other than that, please check back again or Contact Me and I'll let you know when it's available again.

Thank you for your interest.

There are 12 Hometown cities on the map. The Hometowns serve two basic functions:

  • Starting Point - Each player receives a free Hometown to start the game.
  • Multi Branch Banking - Players may choose to purchase un-owned Hometowns from the Bank and take advantage of banking in each Hometown they own.

Each time you LAND ON or PASS THROUGH any of your own Hometown(s) you can collect $10,000 from the “local welfare office,” (you're unemployed with a local address so easily qualify), to be paid by the bank.

If you pass multiple Hometowns you own on a single roll you collect the $10,000 from each Hometown. You must remember to ask for your money before the next player rolls the dice, or you burn (do not receive it).

You do not collect $10,000 on a Hometown you have just purchased on the same move.

As mentioned previously, you may deposit up to $20,000 when you pass through a Hometown you own and up to $50,000 if you land right on your own Hometown as well as immediately when you purchase a Hometown from the bank.

With extra Hometowns you can bank multiple times on the same move. i.e. pass through one Hometown you own and land on one you own (or un-owned and purchase it) and you may deposit $20,000 + $50,000 = $70,000 total.

Landing On Someone Else's Hometown

When you land on a Hometown that is owned by another player, you must pay the owner for the privilege of being there. Pay $5000 x both dice.
