The Aggravation board game is a fast-paced race to the finish line. Players take turns rolling the dice and moving their pieces around the board. In order to play the game, each player must choose three pawns (or pieces) of one color, which they will use throughout the game.
On a player’s turn they roll the two dice and can move any of their 3 pieces around the board based on what is shown on the dice. The goal is to be first to get all three of your pieces onto your home space. Depending on how many players are playing, some spots landings may need more than one piece in order for that landing spot to become safe. There canbe up to 6 pots aroundthe outside ofthe board for players store their pieces if they are hit by an opposing player’s piece or sent back Home due to unfortunate dice rolls.
Players continue rolling dice and making moves until someone has earned all three pieces in their Home space. If multiple players create a traffic jam on the board, no one can make it through until one player strategically releases a pot or trap others ” this release must be done with perfect timing! If all pieces from one team have been eliminated from play then that team will lose and the otherteam will win – this can happen if allpieces fromone team got stuck inpots and could not escapein time!

Add a section for “Strategy”
Strategy: Aggravation is a game of strategy and luck, so the key to winning the game is to make the most of both. To gain an advantage in the early game, try to land on your inner stars first so that you can move your pieces around the board quickly. When you reach the corner of the board and are ready to start moving around again, be careful with your placing. You don’t want multiple enemy pieces lining up as they may bump or get stuck behind others. In addition, try to block off enemy paths through corners and spaces with two or more pieces on them. This can help dwindle down their options for moves and create obstacles for them in the middle game. As the endgame approaches, aim for forming several “aggravations” with five of your pieces in a row, preferably before everyone else has done so already. Finally, remember that luck oftentimes plays a role in who wins Aggravation–so have fun and be patient!
