The object of the game is to traverse the board from HOME to the OFFICE after dropping off one's commuters at their respective places of employment.
You start off with two commuters but may pick up extra ones before you're out of the Neighborhood Jaunt. Next is either the Interstate 500 or Suburban Gauntlet. After this is the Beltway Expressway, with a Car Pool Express Lane for the lucky bastards with three or more commuters on board. Finally, there is the Inner City Maze.
You normally roll two dice, but some road signs reduce that number to one die. Optional rules include Traffic Jams, Fender Benders, Public Parking, Double Parking and Baby Behind the Wheel.
