Why It's On The List
  • An amazing 3-D board and top-notch components make this racing game (you're racing to get to the top of two of the four mountains) a great family experience.
Tips & Tricks:
    • There's a heavy "take that" element in this game that I normally don't like it - but it works here.
    • Marco (the designer) published a 2nd edition set of rules that are MUCH cleaner and easier to learn from than the first set of rules.
    • While I love this game, I don't recommend buying your own copy unless you're independently wealthy. The only ones I can find right now run $150 or more.
