Played on a round board, players roll dice and move their game pieces in two opposite directions at the same time. They advance their pieces using Roundabout's innovative offensive maneuvers and stymie their opponents with the game's defensive moves. The first player to remove all of his or her pieces from the board is the winner!
I tried to play this game with my daughter and would really recommend that this game is not played with a younger child. You simply will not get the best out of this game. Ideally, this game is best played with an adult, and would probably be more fun with four adults over a glass or two of wine.
The instructions are comprehensive but at times, I feel they were a little lacking, even after reading through them three or four times, I was still a little unclear of what is intended at times.
The playing board is large and clear and well laid out, the playing pieces are made from sturdy plastic. All in all, presentation is excellent.
The game is a tactical game of blocking your opponent whilst trying to move your pieces around the board and then off the board before your opponent. This can be played with two, three or four players.
I am not sure I gave this game a fair go. I dare say had I played this game with adult company, my views on the game would be different. The game failed to grab me quickly and failed to hold my interest for long. I didn't find there was much to challange me and I do like to be challanged and made to think whilst playing a game. I felt it was a little too simplistic for my liking.
