This game has proven its staying power, getting constant use since entering my collection. This game is a bit more cerebral than Call My Bluff, making it a good choice for 4 players with 20 minutes to spare.
This is a great press your luck game. It can be really exciting when you're forced to take risks to stay in the game. Sometimes they pay out, and sometimes you get crushed, and sometimes it's too little too late. 2008-01-31: Realised I like this game more than I did initially. Upped rating from 6.2 to 7. I think determining when to continue to throw the dice beyond the limits of safety is an integral part of the strategy to this game.
I know its a classic, but outside of the nostalgia, there just isn't anything here. There are no long term strategies, nor are there interesting decisions to be made. Simple statistics tells you to ride the middle numbers, since those tracks are shorter than they ought to be. Maybe if it were balanced it would be fun, but I just can't get passed this blatant oversight.
