Bumper to Bumper Fun

The Game Board in rush hour shift is modeled after a multi-lane highway with traffic blocking you in every direction.

To win, you’ve got to get your car from one side of the board to the other before your opponent. You’ll each take turns making strategic choices to advance your car, move cars out of your way, and move cars into the way of your opponent.

Be the first car to the other side!
Can you put your opponent into a jam without getting yourself into one?

Well that’s something you don’t see every day.

Unlike real traffic, the game grid in Rush Hour Shift can shift, creating a whole new set of challenges out of nowhere.

The board itself is made in three pieces that you or your opponent can slide along two seams to dramatically change the lay of the land. Use it to your advantage to slip obstacles out of your way and into your opponent’s. But they have the same power, so if you think you can move one car and zip your way to the other side on your next turn, just wait. Look again; now you’re facing a trio of perpendicular big rigs and a whole mess of frustration.

Board can shift on any turn!
Slide a section of the game board to open a path for yourself or block your opponent.

Obey all traffic signs

Just like in real traffic, your mobility is limited by outside influences. In real life, it might be a speed limit, a one-way street, a car accident, or that jerk who’s cutting everybody off.

In Rush Hour Shift, each player holds four cards in their hand and plays one at the beginning of their turn. The cards determine if you’re going to move a car a determined number of spaces, drive forward until you hit a roadblock, shift the grid, or a combination of these moves.

Rush Hour Shift cards include Move, Shift the Grid, Slide, and Move & Shift.
Play the cards you’re dealt to drive forward while obstructing the competition.

A complete traffic jam in a box

Rush Hour Shift includes a three-piece game board, two player tokens, a thirty-two card deck, a dozen blocking vehicles, and a mesh storage pouch.

The complete game set includes a traffic grid, card deck, twelve cars, two player cars, and a mesh carrying bag.
Everything you need to make and break a traffic jam.

Question: Traffic is horrible. How can this be fun?

Answer: If traffic were an intense strategic battle of wits, you might enjoy it more. Trust us, Rush Hour Shift might be themed after an annoying byproduct of road travel, but it’s a fierce mental competition full of strategy and fun.

Question: How many people can play?

Answer: Rush Hour Shift is a strategy game designed for two players ages eight and up.
