Homeward Bound

Based on a game played by early settlers of Quebec, Carl Kresge's beautifully designed and made wooden game is a unique combination of board game and card game. The rules are simple, but it swiftly develops into a challenging competition. Players form teams, and move their tokens clockwise around the board according to the cards' values. The team that gets all eight tokens home, wins. Sound simple? It's not. Time, luck, and plenty of strategy are needed to win. Fortunately, this encourages great conversation, and sometimes, excited "table talk." May the best team win! Can be played with four, six, or eight players. Made in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Michigan

Carl Kresge has always loved games. While traveling in Europe, he was introduced to one that immediately became his favorite. Back home in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a friend developed a new version so that more people could play it together. Carl was so enthused that, although he’d never done any screen printing or computerized wood cutting, he learned these skills and more to be able to make the game from scratch. He made a few for family members and friends, and before long, was flooded with requests. Eventually, he was unable to keep up with demand, and turned over most of the process to a local printer. He misses being more hands-on (and does pack every game himself for shipping), but such is the price of success.
