Towards the end of the track is a ferry boat. All the players need to get on the ferry before it can launch. Then it moves on each person's turn. Hopefully the ferry makes it to the island before the piggies eat all the food!
The game is a lot of fun for our two- and four-year olds to play. Their favorite part is having to solve the Goldbug mysteries before the timer runs out. Often, Jacob will just watch the timer while Lucy and I frantically search the board for another fire hydrant. We win the game about 60-70% of the time, which is satisfying for everyone. The game typically takes us from ten to fifteen minutes, which matches their attention spans pretty well.
The only challenge is you need a lot of space for the board. We always play on the floor and are constantly moving up and down the board while playing. That's nice for toddlers too, since they don't have to sit in one spot for the whole game.
We've read one of the Busytown books (from Chick-fil-A) and have never watched the TV show, so I don't know how well the game matches up. If your child is into either, I'm sure they'd love the game. It's fun just by itself. We recommend it highly!
