    Walk 500 miles without also walking 500 more.

    Inspired on the one hit wonder song I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) by The Proclaimers.

    A postcard dexterity game, where players race flickering pennies.

    The first player, on their first turn, uses a finger to flick or push their penny so that it touches or crosses the first line - but not the second line. On each player's subsequent turns, the player flicks their penny so that it is closer to the right of the card that the other player's penny but does not completely cross two different lines on the same flick. If unsuccessful, the get one chance to retry.

    If a player is unable to successfully complete their turn on a retry, they lose the game. If a player is able to flick their penny past the 500 mark without breaking the other rules for their turn, they win the game.

    Released in the May 2017 Board Game of the Month Club $5+ package.
