**[Español]** Diria que es el mejor juego de Knizia para no jugadores, al ser una carrera el objetivo del juego y el fin del juego es el mismo, ser el primero en llegar al final. Tiene dados.

Simple, fun, gorgeous. More luck than skill, but what did you expect? Good job, Reiner!

Update: Upgraded to a 9. Man, I play this game probably more than any other in my collection. What a great filler!

Our group always has fun with this quick and easy "press your luck" game. Hope to see it published in the US. Why they have spots rather than numbers on the dice is a mystery to me.

Push your luck with a nice element of screw your neighbor, in the quick-playing filler category. The customized 6-sided dice are a brilliant game component design. They create a wider probability distribution than a normal 2d6, and therefore more dynamic gameplay. Six-player awesomeness in a small box!

Outstanding game that is best played as Cosmic Exxtra, the insane rules a group of us developed at Gulf Games 12. Cosmic Exxtra includes things like names for all the rolls that you need to call out when they are rolled, and special powers that help you hexx your opponents to roll an X or two. Beware the Sucking Chest Wound!

An underrated gem. Better than "Can't Stop", but doesn't have that same push-you-luck tension that Can't Stop has. Not sure if it works well with 6-players.

While I enjoy "Can't Stop", this is a notch above that game. The ability to decide between knocking someone off the score track or playing for a higher column is about as exciting of a decision you can make in a dice game.

A lively, interesting dice game from Knizia. Very light, of course (it IS a dice game, after all), but the mechanics are unusual and it cracks right along.

Game is kind of like can't stop.I still might prefer can't stop a little more but this game is different enough to keep both.Also this game can support 6 players as well.Not as good with just 3 need at least 4 or more to make it more fun.

A Reiner Knizia dice game where players are seeking a great roll, then judging how good that roll is by placing it on a five rung ladder. Better rolls below the ladder will remove worst rolls above it, but if your dice is still on the ladder next turn, you get to advance. Staple filler for us when we're in the mood for something light.

[original rating: 3.5] I'm sure this game is better than 3.5, but I only played it once years ago and didn't care for it. I suspect we had a rule wrong. Must try this one again.

[finally, another play years later, rating: 7] Wow, what a difference. Now I'm not so sure this game warrants a rating as high as 7, but, boy, did we have a good time. I suspect the fact that we had a good group of players helped.

[more plays later] Okay, I've bumped this up to an 8 now, as the more I play it, the more I really appreciate it.

50+ plays. A nice can't-stop type game that's provided us a lot of fun and trash talk over the years. I prefer it over Can't Stop as the downtime between turns is far reduced. We use a home-grown variant of starting on the space equal to the number of players in the game. That shortens the game a little to a preferred length and also means you've got something to lose right from the start.

A die-rolling, "press your luck" game with quite a bit of strategy and psychology. My daughter had a remarkably strong winning record in this game---evidence that there's more than just luck.

A great combination of Can't Stop and, and, I don't know what else. It has the push your luck element, but also has a good deal of screw your neighbor. But by screwing your neighbor, you may also be hurting yourself, so a difficult choice arises--Do you sacrifice yourself to take down the leader, or go for second? Slows down a bit when played with 6. *UPDATE* I discovered we had been playing a rule wrong, which I think contributed to slowing down the game. Played correctly, I don't have a problem with the length.

Neat dice rolling game, leave it to Knizia to make one that works for me. I think this game really benefits from the right group and that might have hurt folks initial impressions. I know several people who just groaned their first few plays and then grew to absolutely adore the game. It really plays best with 5-6 players. I love the look of the game and finally got a copy. Too bad it's kind of hard to get.
