In BauBoom, players need to help ants construct an anthill by moving ants along the road to collect materials in order to complete their personal blueprint.
The road is on a shared game board that features colorful building tiles that players try to collect in their individual wheelbarrow. To do this, at the start of your turn you roll two dice, then move forward a distance equal to either of the dice or the sum of them. If you want the tile on which you land, you can place it in your wheelbarrow. The trick, however, is that you need to remember all of the tiles that you've already acquired because once you reach the end of the road you try to fill in your blueprint from bottom to top with those tiles; for each wrongly collected tile, you must discard one that's perfect for your plan. Whoever first manages to use the colored tiles to build their predetermined anthill wins.
BauBoom includes anthills of different levels to allow players of different skill levels to compete more evenly.
