Hitchiker is a fast paced fantasy where life's just one carefree adventure after another. You'll be singing, gambling, finding things, dabbling in the Black Market and often just laughing all the way to your bank. Unfortunately as it turns out, there may also be a few unpleasant surprises hiding along the way, but we'll get to that in a minute.

The game is designed for 2 to 6 players and should last about 60-90 minutes on average.

Players begin with a Hometown (city on the board), $25,000 and a Bank envelope. The object of the game is to be the first to save $250,000 in your Bank envelope or accumulate $50 million in Travelling Cash.

Hitchikers travel by rolling two dice and following the highway clockwise around the board. Each city or location counts as one space. Upon arrival at your destination, there will be something going on, depending on the type of location it is. Each is explained later in detail.

Because there are two ways to win, Hitchikers have plenty of options and flexibility in how they wish to implement their winning strategy.

For example, if you have a low tolerance to excessive risk you may choose a more cautious approach. Buying Hometowns and making regular deposits in your Bank envelope is a great way to win … if you can avoid disaster.

On the other hand if you enjoy the thrill of high stakes gambling or risky activities, you’re going to love chasing the big payouts and stacking up your Travelling Cash.

The bottom line is you are looking for ways to increase your bankroll and trying to avoid trouble along the way. Some of the perils can cost you money or your contraband, others in the extreme may lead to an untimely death. New in this edition of Hitchiker (for those who have played before) is the option to buy temporary Life Insurance prior to your regular turn.

On the subject of dying, the good news is that death is not permanent in the game. Hitchikers are reincarnated as many times as necessary. As a bonus and unlike most other games, this means new players can seemlessly join a game already in progress and still have a chance to win.
