  • Slipstream Slingshot

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Use a Homing Pigeon to move back 50 spaces, effectively launching yourself 50 spaces forward every 10 turns.
  • Teleporter allows reliably moving back 50 spaces in one movement.
  • Reward Block can yield a big reward when used with this item, like a Go-Kart.
  • ACME Pogo-Stick, Space Capacitator and Fluctuator, and Sneezing Powder can move you backwards.
  • In terms of events, running against a bad guy or the Indian chief in The Wild West, running from Saruman, running from The United Nations, being blown away by the Bomb!, getting caught digging through Princess Bubblegum's trash pile in Ooo, running from The Bear!, launching yourself with a Catapult, and running 30 spaces in Fantasy World are ways to move backwards significantly. In a team game, you can also direct a teammate to use their Gun on you to move you 40 spaces back (or just get lucky with such a thing in a normal game.)
