The Tugs board game is a rare board game released in 1990 by Octogo Games and is based on the Tugs TV show's universe, set in Bigg City Port.



  • Not all the Star and Zero tugs appear on the board game; the characters that didn't appear in the game are Big Mac, O.J., Hercules, and Zak.
  • The board game says that Johnny Cuba is from Cuba when he speaks with an Australian accent in the TV series. This mistake must have led from his surname, Cuba.
  • S.S. Vienna is the only ocean liner not to appear in the board game.
  • The Duchess' nationality is British, but in a rare picture from Sunshine, she has an American flag on her front mast.
  • It says on the board game that Zebedee is owned by Captain Star, but as Zebedee is a Z-Stack, he should be owned by Captain Zero.
    • This is probably due to the ending of High Winds, where Ten Cents offered him a place within the Star Fleet.
  • This is one piece of merchandise where Captain Star's name is spelt Starr as in Ringo Starr, the narrator from the first to the second seasons of Thomas & Friends, Tugs' sister show.
  • Ten Cents is structured as 10 Cents.
