This game is nominated for Spiel des Jahres in Germany under the title Verflixxt! You just got onto the path to victory, and now you have to take this blasted card. But remain calm, because the game's not over yet. The last card decides the winner here. Only then is the final scoring done. As the saying goes: He who laughs last, laughs best...

This is a nice little game for all the family, combining simple roll-and-move gameplay with some nifty strategy.

Playing the game is very simple. The board is series of tiles and each player has several pawns, which they are trying to move from the start tile to the end tile by rolling the die. If moving your pawn from a tile will leave that tile empty then you must take that tile.

This is where the game gets interesting as at the end of the game some tiles give positive points, some give negative points and some allow negative points to be converted to positive points.

This game is short and simple enough to keep the kids interested, but also gives adults something to think about. Most important of all, it's a lot of fun!
