::Partners (board game)
Partners is a cross and circle game for four players, working together in pairs. The gameplay is similar to Ludo, Parcheesi and many other cross and circle games, but moves are decided by cards played, not by dice throws. Among the cards available are cards that move pieces backwards, and cards that allow swapping any two pieces that are in circuit, including enemy pieces. The object is for each pair to get their total of 8 pieces lined up in the goal area. The obvious way is to move the pieces around the board, but e.g. using a card to move a piece backwards enables some shortcuts.
The game is designed by Thomas Bisgaard and marketed by Dan-Spil since 1998.
