Looking for TMNT Ralston Cereal Board Game Rules

Hi there,

I scanned and digitally restored my old "Adventures UNDER Turtleopolis" (Not to be confused with the other one called "Adventures IN Turtleopolis") Board Game that came in 4 parts on the back of the Ralston Cereal Boxes.

But I donīt have the rules anymore, do anybody of you could help me with a shot or scan of such rules? Hereīs a pic of how they used to be. The rules are explained on the side of the box as you can see, above of a cut out printed green dice for you to put together.

I know these rules must not be complicated nor a big deal, but for restorationīs sake I would like to know exactly what they stated.

I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

I only vaguely remember these, but I'd love to see a high-res scan of that box art game!

That looks like so much fun. I used to love those kinds of board games that came in activity books or backs of cereal boxes, Anyone ever notice how it was only the cheaper made games that had spaces that said things like "Move ahead 3 spaces" or so in so helped you roll again. Can't wait to see this finished.

Wow that's really awesome! Love the color-coded dice, too. I can't contribute any scans but I look forward to seeing them provided someone else can. I never had any of the TMNT board games in my day, I imagine my parents must not have seen them in stores 'cause I would have otherwise.

Wow, I spot a soft-headed Bebop and Rocksteady on Game 1 board. Impressive!

Yep, what about some polly pocket TMNT figurines?
The game came with printed ones and those and the rules are the ones that I still need to work on to restore, right now Iīm done with the board. I really hope somebody could eventually get me access to the original printed rules.

Woah! There are two intact copies of the cereal box on eBay that come with these rules. But unfortunately since I donīt live in the USA, I canīt have the chance to have them shipped to me anyway.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1990-Ralston...item46224a5022

Is anybody planning on getting any of them by any chance? Just a readable photo of those rules would make my day. Thanks.

I added it to my watch list on ebay. I will ask my wife in the morning. I think this is something that could help a lot of dromers out. If I buy it I will get some high res scans of the entire thing put up on here. I will let you guys know in the morning.

Okay, this game looks awesome. The link to the eBay auction is still there, so is it safe to assume you're still looking for the rules? No one sprung for a box, yet?

EDIT: I just found this: http://whattheshellpodcast.com/tmntcerealboardgame/ Same person, right?

Yep, definitely looks like it. Same pics of the board and everything. So it looks like at this point we're missing the game rules (the box also has cut out game pieces for the turtles). Adventures IN Turtleopolis looks like is has a slightly different play method using cereal pieces. Would be interesting in we got that one eventually, even though the art is not as good.

EDIT: Looks like one of the boxes were sold. 1 left.

Yeah, they are all gone now...

And yes, same person, I saw this post until today by accident actually, you can get the board here: http://whattheshellpodcast.com/tmntcerealboardgame/

Anyway I hope you enjoy the restoration, cheers! And Iīm crossing my fingers that somebody in this forum was the one to grab one of them and that maybe one day will post the rules here.

Hi there!

Does anybody got this board game from a link above?
It seems like a dead link. If anybody downloaded scans of this board game, I'd be very grateful if he share it. I'd like to print it and play with my kids.

Thank you in advance!
