Blue Orange Save the Dragon
(Blue Orange $21.49)
An unusual 3-D game board is made of thick cardboard, easy to put together, fits nicely back into the box, but we're not sure how long it will hold up. The aim of the game is to be the first to climb the stairs and reach an open door at the top. There are two types of dice: one tells players how many spaces they can move, the other is an action die, which is used if a player rolls a 1 or 2 on the first die. If the action die is thrown players either choose to move the shield or door pieces, or they pick an open door to roll the boulder down the board in order to try and knock their opponents pieces down. The action dice inserts a small amount of strategy into this game. It's a cute game, but we need to send it to kids to check the durability of the board when exposed to active children playing.
