I love this game because you can buy extension packs which have more cards (problems to solve) and extra cars to complicate the situation. This is a game you can play again and again as you're unlikely to remember the solutions to all of the puzzles after you've solved them.
There are three different levels of cards to pick from. (Answers are in coordinates on the back of each card)
You simply place each counter (car or lorry) as suggested onto the board in a set position. You can not lift the counters to move them. You either slide them backwards or forward to eventually reveal the clear exit path for the red car.
Highly addictive and lots of fun 😊
The game consists of a plastic box with a 6x6 grid on it, 42 game cards and, as the name of the game would suggest a number of vehicles (4 trucks and 12 cars) that fit onto the grid and are the pieces you play with. Everything is compact - the grid is about 13.5cm by 16cm, and fits into a small drawstring bag, making the game very transportable and quick to set up. Game play is simple but engaging - in theory it's for one person to play at a time but we quite often find that one person will play and several more will get involved leading to co-operative puzzle solving and much discussion and scratching of heads.
The basic idea is to use one of the cards to set up a traffic jam of trucks and cars, these being variously 2 or 3 squares long of the grid, and then to free the red car and let it "drive" out of the gap in the grid, a bit like the illustration on the packaging as seen above. The cards show in pictorial form how to lay out the cars and lorries horizontally and vertically. To make it easy the pieces are all totally different colours and made of a hollow, light, but robust plastic. Once you have the game is set up you move the vehicles forward and backwards, but in no other direction, as much as you want until you find the sequence to free the red car. It's a bit like tetris in reverse and instantly addictive.
I like the fact that there is a little drawer in the grid to store the game cards and the game itself is expandable as you can buy more cards and special vehicles. We have just stuck the basic game so far, the cards come in three different challenge levels and have kept members of this house amused for hours. A card can take seconds or up to an hour to solve, it depends on the complexity of the card and the skill of the player. The solution is printed on the back if the jam becomes too much, when playing you really do have to think about how to work out the puzzle it's great fun but also can get quite frustrating as you wonder how a few pieces of plastic can have you so stumped!
The set is pretty well made and well worth the purchase price in my opinion, it's definitely a great item to fill an ideal five minutes or the tricky time for children in a restaurant when colouring no longer appeals. I like the fact that it is so tactile - the game is available on i-Pad also but somehow in 2-D, though it is to all intents and purposes identical, is much less involving than having to physically push real pieces around a board.
I'm not a huge board game fan in general but this game is great, and it's a real must-have for holidays. There is a junior version availableRush Hour Junior but this one is suitable for anyone aged 4 or above who will be able to access it in different ways, with the very youngest setting out and pushing around the cars and older players enjoying the very real challenge that such a fun looking game can provide. Highly recommended.
Bought initially for my children and then friends of theirs who visited and liked playing with it. It's quite unique as it seems to appeal to all ages from children to adults and is a welcome alternative to sitting on a laptop or playing computer games. Could also be useful distraction on long flights or car journeys.
Bought again recently for a friends daughter (age 9) but it made me dig out our old original "Rush Hour" and guess what?- Everyone wanted to have a go at it again!
Timeless classic and a good gift choice for anyone.
