5.0 out of 5 stars Another Orchard great game, 28 Jan 2010

This review is from: Orchard Toys Run, Run, as Fast as you Can! (Toy)
Yet another great game from orchard. The idea is to get your gingerbread man board piece across the river, escaping the horse, cow and chef that are chasing you to take a nibble.

Off board each player has a jigsaw gingerbred man, made up of four pieces. There are two dice to throw each turn, one to move your on board gingerbread man, one to move any of the pieces that eat the gingerbread men. So you can chase and nibble other players. Every time your on board man is nibbled, you have to remove piece from your jigsaw man. You must have a complete jigsaw man to cross the river.

The river involves spinning a dial, getting either cross the water or fox. You do not move if you get a fox. The first player to cross the river wins.

Really good fun, well thought out, involving tactics, different game play and multi tasking on the game board. Would recommend for ages 4-12. Good quality board and pieces as always from Orchard.
