4.0 out of 5 stars *** BUY SUPERIOR, LESS EXPENSIVE STANDARD VERSION OF THIS GREAT GAME ***, 12 May 2007
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Deluxe Edition Rush Hour (Toy)
Rush Hour is a brilliant game! My children love playing it and I love playing it. It does what it says on the box - makes you think, is fun and everybody can play.

As a primary teacher I have used Rush Hour (standard version) to teach problem solving to 8-11 year olds (using the different levels of challenge cards depending on their ability). Although Rush Hour is advertised as a single player game, I have watched 4 children trying to solve the more difficult challenges together.

In my opinion, the 'deluxe edition' only deserves 3 stars for durability and 4 stars overall for several reasons. Unlike the standard game, this edition doesn't have a carry bag or a drawer in the traffic grid to store the cards. Instead, the cards are stored in a playing cards box (which could rip easily) underneath the grid. The red car's metallic paint chips easily and like the grid, all vehicles are firmly wedged in their own little spaces (far too difficult for little fingers to get out).

The deluxe edition comes with 20 more challenge cards than the standard version. As the same 40 challenges in the standard version could be attempted time and time again, I think the additional cards in the deluxe edition are unnecessary.

Brilliant game, shame about the 'deluxe' packaging. Definitely not worth the extra £5. Buy the superior, less expensive standard version of this game instead.
