I still call this game Himmelsstürmer, the German title I first knew it by. It's a very light romp where players are at the mercy of the roll of the die. What makes it fun is that who wants which three balloons to win is a secret. A good, pretty quick diversion which we go ahead and play with as many as 8. Oh, and of course the little plastic balloons are SO much fun! (I'm talking about the original Parker version, not this odd one where you lay out a course with cards instead of playing on a board.) PS: I've posted rules to the game in English in the General Articles folder.

[Initial Impression: 7]
This game has the lightness of a marshmellow, and can be just as tasty. The concept is utter simplicity: players roll a die and then choose to move any one of 8 colored balloons. Now for the major twist: each player is secretly assigned 3 balloons that need to cross the finish line in order to secure the win. Most of the game is in trying to determine who is championing which balloon, how best to stymie their efforts while misleading them into helping you. In order to win, you'll need at least some help from a few of the other players, who won't necessarily know that they are indeed aiding you. Then comes another minor twist: you can't win on your own turn, so putting your last balloon over the finish may actually hand the win to someone else - you can risk it, or hope that another player will move your last balloon over the finish on your turn. It adds up to a very enjoyable game, with plenty of fun and just enough strategy to be a nice gaming snack. I could see it being especially fun with kids, but adults can enjoy it too.
