Candy Land board game
Candy Land board game

Classic board game of adventure and sweet surprises. Each player advances along the rainbow path through the peppermint stick forest, the gingerbread plum tree and the gumdrop mountain. If you are the first person to reach the last purple space, or move beyond the last purple space, you reach candy castle and have won the game.

Contents: gameboard, 4 movers, 44 cards, and instructions.

In the 2004 version, younger players are not required to remove backward on the track if they draw a named card, and the last square of the track was changed from a Violet Square to a Rainbow Square, resolving a 55-year dispute over whether a player needs to land on the Violet Square or move beyond the Violet Square to win.

Prior to the 2006 version, three colored spaces on the track (one in Molasses Swamp and two "Cherry Pitfalls") were marked with a dot. Players who landed on a dot were "stuck," and were unable to move from the spot until they drew a card that matched the color of the square they were on. The 2006 version replaced gum drops with licorice spaces; players who land on a licorice space only lose their next turn.

65th Anniversary Edition: This classic edition features the charming graphics and components from the game’s early days! Celebrating over 65 years of great family fun! Contents: Bi-fold heavy-duty gameboard, 4 plastic gingerbread men movers Deck of 64 cards Instructions including “The Story Of Candy Land.”
