This was given by Santa to our 7-year old daughter in 2012 who fell in love with it before even it hit the table. But it is fun! Can be played with your kids without being too straight-forward for the adults at the same time.

A cute and fun little game on the outside, but a competitive game of some depth on the inside. Plays quite quickly and looks like something that will work as a quality starter/finisher for a long night and something that I can also enjoy playing with my kids.

A beautiful production from GMT. No corners cut here. Thick board and counters, full size cards and large custom dice.
For what the game is, it is top-notch. Cute, funny and down-right dog eat dog gamestyle. I read a reveiwers recommendation to play dirty and I agree. It's survival of the craftiest player. Better off explained that way to new players.
The game is easily explained and moves fast enought to be played and enjoyed in about an hour. 5-6 players will take longer.
Also it is a wargame at its design core covered in play and theme as a light Euro type game. Great job GMT, we're glad to have this one in our collection! Bring it on - "I'm King Of The Hill" oh wait "Pull My Paw"!
Overall rating of 8.5 for fast fun steeped in a competitive setting. A favorite household game for us and I'll play it anytime.

It has a hilarious theme and art work. And the mixture of panicked running of your own lemmings (with names and funny Team designations) combined with the fun of using eagles to attack your opponents often makes for a game rife with laughing and goofiness, that has enough strategy to not be boring and enough luck to not take the getting picked on via "attacks" from other players seriously.

Goofy whining about "Hey why me?!?!" is laugh fodder instead of genuinely irritated exclamations. At least with the right group it does.

Because turning other people's lemmings into eagle chow and then scattering the rest in all directions is not only integral to the strategy and thematic... It is FUN to do.

And this is from a player who tends to not like games that heavily favor attacking other players over simply concentrating on advancement of your own pieces. But with this game it really works and results in a lot of laughing.

Fun game, playable by adults and kids, and teaches some fundamental ideas useful in making the transition to wargames. Very cute artwork- glad to have supported through the p500 system at GMT. Have played three times, and had good fun. Returned home the other night to find my wife and son playing it together--- a GMT game!!!

A nice "racing" game, although it works quite different than other racing games. For starters, all players' lemmings move the same amount of places, so there crux lies in the tactics, pushing your luck or hiding in the bushes (which costs more movement points), always keep in mind that eagles are hovering over the lemmings heads and while players take turns in controlling them, there is always a chance of guessing which way the eagles might fly and whose lemmings they eat. The special powers (cards that are dealt our at random) add some variety to the game. Luck is limited and Leaping Lemmings is really a game of strategy and pushing your luck. The theme works great (the farther the lemmings leap over the cliff, the more VP you get). Great game, too long for a filler but excellent to start off a game day/night.

Ok, if this is GMT's "dive" into Euro-style games then I can't wait to see their next venture.

The components are great, the board is awesome and the cards are top notch. Illustrations are whimsical. The gameplay overall is a "2" on the GMT scale but really, there's more complexity when playing the game with 3+ people.

This is a great party game. Fast to learn, fast to play and it rewards skillful play without making newbs feel like they don't have a chance. Most importantly, this game shines if everyone plays aggressively. Get DIRTY! That Eagle Chow Pile better be heaping when the game ends...

The game is easy to mod and add variants too. We've already played a few games with a five year old and modified rules that were fun and hilarious.

This is a fun little game about sending genetically modified lemmings over a cliff, with the most style, for points. I was quite surprised with just how good it turned out to be. This isn't something I see myself playing all the time, but it will certainly be a good one to pull out every once in a while. You can just as easily win from last place as you can from first. I like that in a game. Everyone feels like they are still in it.

I love this game. Love it. It's actually my first "official" hex-n-counter game in that the board contains actual hexes. I really like the quirky theme, Disney-esque artwork, and the layout of the board - which totally satisfies my OCD in game design...a place for everything on the board.

The learning curve seems low enough that I can teach it to almost anyone, yet fun enough to keep me interested tactics-wise. One thing I've learned recently is that I prefer tactics over strategy, and this game definitely scratches that itch.

I just had to get Leaping Lemmings. It’s a family game with a “cute” theme. It definitely isn’t a euro game. These aren’t euro mechanics but wargame mechanics. In a sense Leaping Lemmings is a wargame. It’s not only designed by wargamers but it introduces players to hexes, movement points, stacks, cover, eliminations etc. Leaping Lemmings is a fun tactical level game about a mad race where you hope (and try) to get your opponents eliminated. Leaping Lemmings is not to be taken too seriously. It's a beer and prezels game, no doubt about that. At first it might seem that Leaping Lemmings is all about pushing-your-luck but in order to do well you have to make plans, calculate propabilities and play safe.

The object is to get your lemmings to jump off the edge of the cliff before the eagles circling overhead can eat them. Either way your lemmings are dead, it's just that one way scores you victory points and the other does not. If the theme of lemming-killing alone wasn't enough to earn this a high score, then the fact that it's a great game seals the deal.

Completely underrated GMT offering.

To those idiots who deem this "crap" because it's just not heavy enough to engage the great wasteland that is your consciousness, I kindly ask that you reread the introduction. This is a light, humorous game that has enough tactical options to engage a serious gamer.

This game is a hoot. Buy it and play it with plenty of beverages.

I love the presentation of this game. Little named lemmings, a chance to swoop in and chow down with eagles, the basic wargaming concepts masked in such a light romp. In the end the strategy is pretty light, but there are enough decisions to make on your turn and good fun to be had if you don't start analyzing what you're doing too much.

I was surprised to see GMT produce a non-wargame when I first heard about this one, but after playing it I can see the wargame backgrould coming from the GMT designers.

It could have been made with a war theme but I enjoy the Lemmings theme. There is a delicate balance while playing deciding whether to make a run with one lemming all the way across or getting several out so you have options. There are some good "take that" special action cards to be played, which keep the game interesting.
