What It Is
iPieces Game of Goose is a basic preschool game that has been interpreted for the iPad with beautiful, classic animations and artwork that bring the game to life and make great use of the iPad for young kids. The game is designed for two to six players, and the set includes six goose-shaped pawns in different colors. The pawns are abrasion-resistant, so you can put them right on the iPad without worrying about scratching the screen.
Download the free app from the Apple App Store, set your language and country, and you're ready to play. Each player spins the die by swiping their finger across it on the iPad screen, and then moves their pawn the corresponding number of spaces. When you land on a picture, the game board comes alive with an animation. When you land on a goose picture, you'll follow it either forward or backward. There are different spaces where you'll have to either skip a turn or go back to the beginning. The game continues until one player lands at the end by exact count.
