Product Description

Move Through the Game by Solving Puzzles Begin by choosing a character--Santa, Rudolph, Hermey, or Clarice--to represent yourself. Next, roll the die and move your player around the board. As soon as you land on a Misfit toy, cue the DVD, select the region of that toy, and play the mini game that pops up. Get it right and you collect the Misfit toy. Put the toy back on the island of Misfit toys if you get it wrong. The first player to collect three Misfit toys of different colors wins! A Variety of Mini Games Test Memory and Concentration There's more to this DVD game than getting the Misfit toys before Bumble does. Some of the puzzles you'll face along the way give you a chance to watch clips from the original animated special before answering questions. Sing songs from the original TV special, race sleds, and see if you can recognize characters from their voices. This game provides enough entertainment to keep the whole family playing for hours. Fast-Paced Fun for Every Player Occasionally the narrator will let you know that Bumble's been spotted near The Great North Mountains or one of the other areas on the playing board. At that point, every Misfit toy in that area is in danger. If Bumble gets to a Misfit toy before one of the players does, his toy counter advances. As soon as he claims six toys, the game automatically ends. The DVD will also instruct you when to place new Misfit toys in certain areas to keep things exciting. What's in the Box Game DVD, playing board, four player movers, Bumble mover, five mover stands, 20 Misfit toy tokens, Bumble's toy collection counter, and six-sided die.

Although all the previous reviews are correct about the game playing, I would just like to say that it is easy enough to work out how to play, you just have to watch the 'how to play' section on the DVD. Also...my almost 3 year old LOVES this game! We have to play it every day and it's July! When 'bumble' the yeti moves she says 'oh, whats he up to'. This may not be one for the adults, however if you have a very young child you want to include in game playing this may just be the one for you, as most games are too advanced for children of this age.

If, like me, as a child in the 1970s you enjoyed watching the animated Rankin/Bass short film 'Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer', which the BBC often showed over Christmas, then you'll appreciate this fun family game. The rules are simple and easy to follow. Yes, it's more of a family/kids' game than games such as Carcassonne, Risk etc (which I love playing), but as a quick fun family game over the Christmas holidays it does the job. Fun for the kids (especially if they're familiar with the film which is now available on DVD), and a nostalgia hit for the grown-ups. By the way, if you've never seen the film, it's not a 'low budget animation' - it's just old (made in 1964-ish I think.....)

My 6 year old daughter received this for Xmas and the box and contents look lovely. However the instructions were vague, the DVD slow and the game play boring. We gave up as Bumble kept winning against us and so we all felt disappointed. We played our own version without the dvd and bumble by just collecting one of each colour present around the board to choose a winner. This took about 5 minutes as well due to lack of spaces to move around and every throw meant we landed on a present. Overall glad I didn't purchase it as it would have been a waste of my money..don't waste yours!!

This materialised on Christmas, a cheap stocking filler present from one of the family to my 6yr old. It is a nicely presented game in terms of playing pieces, but that's as far as it goes really.

Fundamentally it is a collect the tokens game - players roll a dice, then move onto one of the token squares. At which point you select the relevant area on the DVD and it plays you a quiz of sorts. Successfully answering the question or solving the puzzle means you get to keep the token. The tokens generate randomly, and the Yeti is moved randomly and steals tokens.

However, the problems with this are;
1) The rules are oblique, to say the least - I'm an avid board gamer (Carcassone, Kingdoms, Maya, etc) and it took me a while to fill in the gaps which aren't explained in either the rules or the DVD
2) Random generation of tokens will often occur whilst a player is already on that spot. Thus tilting the game to their favour.
3) The Yeti movement is a time consuming nonsense
4) The quiz is based, I presume, on a stop-motion animated film of indeterminate age and low budget. The questions are either stupidly simple, or incredibly obscure.
5) The game is naturally slow in tempo, and the DVD access times cripple it to the point where it is unplayable, even though I have a very quick high-end DVD player. The kids attention wandered almost immediately.
6) After about 15 minutes everyone had got bored, and it went back in the box.

You can't hope to keep anyone engaged with this game. It doesn't promote interaction, or competitiveness, nor strategic or tactical thinking. The length of time waiting for and watching the DVD means you may as well just stick a film on the box and get 90 minutes of quiet from the kids, rather than 10 minutes.

Honestly, spend your money on something else.

Scene it - for young Rudolf fans 3 Nov. 2010
By Brian R. - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? ) Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
My editorial review:
The Rudolf DVD game is geared toward kids, but is a good option for the Rudolf-loving family game night. If you've played Scene-It, the gameplay and DVD usage is very similar. Most of the questions and games are pretty easy, and they mirror some of the same types of challenges in Scene-It. The difficulty is reduced for younger kids. My 7 and 9 year olds had very few problems playing the game on their own once I had played a couple rounds with them. Most game-related instructions are both spoken and shown on the screen so that players with limited reading skill can still play. The time per game is pretty accurate at 30-45 minutes. It is limited to 4 players, though you could have more than four work as teams to answer the minigame challenges.

The object is to collect and return the toys which have been scattered across the land. You roll a die to move your character onto a toy-token, then successfully win the on-screen minigame to collect that token. Collect 3 tokens of different colors to win. At the same time, the Bumble (which is controlled by the game) is also trying to steal the toys. If he steals 6 before any player collects 3, the game is over. Therefore, the gameplay is a mix of board-based movement and on-screen games and instructions.

As an adult, I really appreciate that all the graphics, characters, and scenes are from the original movie. They did a good job of keeping the look of the game consistent with the original rather than resorting to computer-graphics like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer & the Island of Misfit Toys. The packaging is nice and everything fits well back into the box. I would have liked a plastic jewel case for the dvd rather than a cardboard sleeve, though.

Overall, the kids like playing it, and it's as enjoyable a flashback for my wife and I to watch and play along or help our kids with some of the answers. I might not pay the full $20 for it, but at a reasonable discount it would be a good purchase in my mind.

Quick assessment:
Overall, I think the game is worthy of 3 stars - It's ok. I like it, and it has potential for a better rating, but there's some gameplay issues.

Good points:
-All original graphics and scenes (except for the game narrator).
-Gameplay suitable for kids on their own
-Difficulty applicable to the age range
-No reading required for young players

Areas of improvement:
-Gameplay speed
-Not a lot of strategy or depth
-No freeplay or quickplay mode
-Instructions not entirely clear

Details behind my opinion and rating:

To be 4 stars:
The game mechanics need improved.
The DVD menu layout should match the game board. I suspect they rearranged it so that you could easily tell whether to press up/down/left/right on the DVD remote. To make the screen match the board would mean the regions are in the 4 corners of the screen, meaning you'd need to potentially press in two directions to get to the correct region rather than just one click. Even so, the screen doesn't have the regions in the same order as the board.

The number of toys the Bumble steals should go from 0 at the bottom to 6 at the top.
In the voice instructions, it says "Move the Bumble's counter up". It means "up by one number", but on the game board the numbers increase as you move the counter down. Only slightly confusing, but for kids, everything should be more clear to avoid mistakes.

Add full audio setup instructions with an option to repeat the last message.
When setting up for the first time, neither the DVD nor the instructions have the full setup and gameplay procedure. It takes a combination of the two to do it right. Once you've played a couple of times, it's easy to understand, but it's frustrating for the first few rounds. Additionally, there's no option to repeat the instruction last given, so if you miss it, you're stuck figuring it out on your own. Once you select an option, there's no "undo". So if you select the wrong region, or accidentally say you've collected 3 toys, the game doesn't give you a chance to correct your mistake.

For 5 stars:
Speed up the gameplay.
The transitions between actions occurring (Bumble moving, Bumble stealing a toy, and Placing/removing tokens) doesn't flow well. Often the next person is taking their turn either because the pause is long enough you think you're supposed to, or you're just too impatient to wait for the "Pass the remote to the next player" message. Often, you'll get two or three instructions per turn, meaning it really slows down the gameplay. My kids didn't seem to mind, but I lost interest after about two games because of how slow it was to get from one turn to another. Even allowing you to fast-forward the individual instructions would help.

Fix gameplay irregularities.
The game seems to try and keep track of how many tokens are on the board and where they are, as well as how many token the Bumble has stolen, but it doesn't always seem to work right. We've found that it sometimes tells you to put a token on a spot that's already occupied. The instructions aren't clear if you put a second one down or if you don't. Once we were told the Bumble stole a toy, but in that region there wasn't one on the board. These might have been our error as well, but it adds to confusion on occasion. All of these can be played around, but I didn't get the feeling that the game was truly polished and error-free. Also, it could do a better job of randomly assigning where to put the tokens. The Bumble sometimes moves to a region that he's already sitting in. By telling you to put him where he already is makes it a bit confusing and at the very least adds extra time to the gameplay for no reason. Lastly, on at least one occasion, if the DVD thinks there's no token in the the region in which you've landed on one, it won't let you select that region's minigame. Therefore, that player can't play a minigame without potentially messing up the token count of other regions.

Allow a free-play mode.
I'd really like to be able to play the minigames without the board. If you're a fan of the movie, it's still fun to play the minigames even if they are a bit easy for adults. It would be nice to have a "free play" feature. This could also let you create a "quick play" version that allows 4 people to race to collect all 5 misfit toy tokens of their color by answering questions correctly.

In the grand scheme, I do like the game but feel it could have been polished up a bit and it would be much better. I like the game, but the poor setup procedure, occasional errors in gameplay, and how slow the game progresses are what keep me from giving it a 4-star rating.

Other observations:
-My contents differ from that in the product description:
The "4 Collectible Figurines/ Movers" are really just cardboard cutouts with plastic stands. They're nice, thick cardboard, better quality than those found in many kids' games, but definitely not collectible figurines.

It mentions 9 Yukon Cornelius tokens and only 11 misfit toy tokens. I'm not sure what those are. We had 20 toy tokens, the single Bumble token, and the player markers. Maybe the description is referring to a different game or an earlier version. All the pieces are included to play the game, they are just different than what the product description calls out. Amazon's review is functionally the same as what I received, though slightly different than what the pictures

Family loves the movie, but not the DVD game 1 Jun. 2011
By Cilla - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? ) Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Three of my children and a friend--a 22 year old, a 17 year old, a 15 year old, and a 14 year old--tested this game. They all said that the game was set up so that either the questions were way too easy(a made-up example --what color is Rudolph's nose) or too hard and obscure. They played it with younger children in mind, and said that even young children would probably be frustrated by the too easy, too hard issue. They also said that it was very annoying to have the Bumble get all the toys and make it so that no one playing won. It should be set up in a different way so that one of the players would win every time, not have people playing against the Bumble. One of my children said that she didn't think she would have enjoyed the game when she was little, based on the problems they saw with it. I realize that we didn't test the game with the "recommended ages" of children, but I think that my kids aren't so far removed from childhood and can judge what they would have liked and disliked as younger children. The board game is colorful and the concept of the game is good, but maybe it should have been more extensively tested with the expected users--young children. Perhaps valuable feedback for improvement would have been gained.

Interactive Rudolph Adventure 30 Oct. 2010
By Sunny Sewing Honeybee - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? ) Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Rather than stealing Rudolph's family, in this game, Bumble decides to steal the misfit toys. It's up to players to rescue the toys before Bumble gets six of them. Going around the physical game board, when a player lands on a toy in one of four different sections, s/he gets to play one of nine different mini games on the included DVD, randomly chosen. If successful, that player wins one of the misfit toy tokens (needing to eventually win three out of four different colors). The games are a mix of extremely easy to slightly challenging. This helps add to the ability for children through adults to play. One (Sled Race) requires a guess, so that all ages have an equal chance to win it. However, anyone who has watched the film many times will find four of the games easier to play than those who haven't, and adults will generally have an advantage over younger players. The games include identifying the voice of a main character, making a correct match (a memory game), and guessing which box Charlie is in after it has been shuffled about. The mini games are entertaining enough that it would be nice to be able to access them alone on the DVD, without having to play the board game, or be able to choose which ones to play--but you can't.

As players proceed around the meandering board in any direction, the DVD keeps track of Bumble's whereabouts. Once he's in a specific one of the four regions, he's going to eventually steal a toy from it. The DVD keeps track of Bumble's toy robberies, but even if Bumble wins the game, the DVD shows a clip from the movie that says he is reformed, so there's no unhappy ending.

Overall the game is fun, but there are some things users may not like as much as others. The most obvious is that the main story has been altered, and it doesn't fit in with the movie's plot. The process of gameplay is a bit unnerving at times. For example, a player might be told to put a toy token in a specific region, only to be asked to remove it in the same turn. There is a lot of set-up and maneuvering of game tokens in between most turns. The narrator's voice is a little irritating and his instructions and the animations can seem repetitive. The biggest drawback of the game and DVD combo, however, is that the layouts don't coincide with one another. The layout of the DVD menu shows the regions in this order: Great North Mountains, Elf Toy Shoppe, Reindeer Games Playground, Santa's Castle. The board shows them in this order: Santa's Castle, Great North Mountains, Reindeer Games Playground, Elf Toy Shoppe. This makes play a bit awkward as players attempt to find the corresponding space to select on the DVD menu.

Despite a few little drawbacks, the board/DVD game is still fun. We plan to play it each Christmas season.

This company is defunct -- software no longer works 7 Jan. 2013
By JetBlueCatMom - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Do NOT buy this. Game cannot be played without software and the DVD doesn't work. The phone numbers and websites listed are all defunct. Paramount bought Screenlife, the company and then shut it down in early 2012. It looks like it could have been a lot of fun. Nice concept, but DVD materials should have been available on-line. Now we just have a gameboard and some pieces and NO GAME. DO NOT BUY! This toy and all the screenlife games should NOT BE FOR SALE!!!

Don't recommend this Reindeer Game. 17 Mar. 2011
By CandysRaves (and Rants) - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? ) Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
DVD games are a real mixed bunch. Sometimes they are good, sometimes they are bad. But when they are bad, they tend to be horrible. My kids really enjoy the little mini-games the come as extras on some movie DVDs, so I thought I would give this game a shot. While it is not the worst game I've ever played, it ranks pretty close.

The pacing of this game is just too slow. I got bored, my kids got bored, and in the end we just pushed on to say that we finished. I don't think we even got excited about a winner. Don't get me wrong, I think that if the family sat down to do this as a Christmas chat type activity, it would be better. We just sat down to play it (we were too busy to play during the holidays) and there just wasn't any magic. I think that a game should be fun no matter when you play it, so I am not taking the "Christmas Magic" into account in my rating.

Overall: If you need a family activity for Christmas time, you could do worse than this. Just do not think that this is a game that you will get out often (or even every Christmas). As with most DVD games, replay value is very limited.
