A játék semmi komoly gondolkodást nem igényel, elsőre így tünik. Több játék után már nem ennyire egyértelmű a dolog, nem biztos, hogy a leggyorsabb felfedező lesz a győztes. Játék közben teljesen az old school érzés volt rajtam, a klasszikus régi verseny játékok jutottak eszembe. Viszont egy kicsit továbbmentünk a csapattal és egy másik játékkal kombinálva egy egész szórakoztató egyveleg sűlt ki. Egyelőre titok melyik ez a játék, a végső verzió után lelibbentem a fátylat.

2009-11-23 - Gift from Secret Santa

October 2011 -- I really enjoy playing this game. It plays quickly and is good for a family group. It is not overly challenging, and there is an element of chance, but even with the dice rolls, you have to make an intelligent decision on how to use the dice results. A good memory helps, too.

A LOT of fun, a GREAT theme, and quite a bit of good, frustrating decisions regarding tile flips and the puzzly design of the pack mechanic.

Re-review: Still enjoying this light, family friendly game.

I must say, that despite all the horrible reviews, my family enjoys it and my wife says "she loves it."
1. There is no direct confrontation, but there is some gentle "messing with the game."
2. She enjoys the theme a lot--nature, backpacking, exploring, survival.
3. Component quality, except for the backpack cards, is exceptional.
4. Artwork is fun and colorful.
5. The kids, and everybody, have a chance to win because of the higher luck factor.
6. Short playing time and easy rules.

I would not suggest it for a child less then 5/6. There are a few too many little rules and minor choices.

If you have a family, I would get it if it's a good price. As of mid-2013 I would pay $15-20 for it.

Revised rating because the more plays we go through, the more we like it as a family. The Resident Evil backpack is totally awesome!

Nice light family game. Love the theme. I'll have to play this more with different numbers of people. So far with 2 or 3 players I can't see a need to get to the temple first and it might actually be better to go slowly. I'll have to see how this works with more players. If there is always an advantage to go slowly then the game could drag as everyone attempts to be last. So far the items that have been used a lot are the first aid kit, compass, survival guide and torch. With more players the map would be more useful than it is with only two or three players.

I enjoy the game for what it is meant to be, a quick light game. Plenty of variety and nice element of surprise as other players flip tiles in front of your pawn.

Silly die rolling game. Yes, its mostly a roll and move. It goes very fast, with lots of groans of despair and shouts of victory as people land on good or bad tiles. There mechanic of using one die to flip a die and one die to move it clever, though most decisions aren't complicated. And sometimes you just roll doubles and have no decision at all. But that's perhaps telling you that you should have picked one of several equipment pieces that would give you a decision!

Fun family game. Just enough variation in the tiles & items to make it a game (but Torches may be too powerful).

We play that 3 1-gems can be exchanged for a 3-gem & than gems can be lost in the Quicksand.

A welcome gift that has given the children (& me) a lot of enjoyment. The children do well at the memory aspect of the tiles while I can't seem to remember from one turn to the next which hide waterfalls & where the pits are concealed. I like the Ghost Stories art so this light Indy Jones-themed memory game is a goodie.

Just received this week 1-10-13. Read rules. Game seems easy enough. Sounds like it might be fun, but until we actually try it out. I think it deserves a 7 rating to start

A simple racing game with some abilities. Nothing too fancy. I do not think it deserves such a low rank though.
