This game is fun. Very easy to play 6 times in a row. A light game, but with individual strategy.

Fun, press your luck game. I, apparently, stink at it but will definately play. It's tense and you have to pay attention to what people are playing. You gotta jump out to keep moving on the track...but there is nothing better when you say "screw it", go to the top and succeed.

December 2013 - A recent revival of the game, for me. Still holds up as a fun, tense, push your luck game.

Feb 2014 - revival going strong. Up to a 9.

Unbelievable - got this at almost 50% off at Kitty Hawk Kites in Avon, NC. This was a big hit for my group...

Who knew this would be so much fun for everyone in the family? Really, everyone I've played this game with has enjoyed it.

UPDATE: There is some real strategy and tension in this game... up to 9.

UPDATE: Even my 2 year old son loves to "play". We have several variants that keep him occupied, and he loves it.

Just played it with two players to test it out - and it was a barrel of laughs rolled up in a blanket of good times. Can't wait to play with more. Update: played another 9 times since then with more players. Awesome fun.

In short, it's a great game for small groups. Very light game play. A lot of chance, a bit of gambling, with a dash of card counting. Every player gets involved. Great if your group is having a couple drinks. HIGHLY recommend this. Takes anywhere between 10-25 minutes depending on how many players you have.

The game rotates with each player taking a turn piloting a hot air balloon with the other players as passengers. Each player has six cards to start; ranging in any of 4 colours or a rare wildcard. Each "turn" as pilot starts with all players in the balloon on cloud one, where the pilot rolls 2 dice. The passengers gamble as to whether the pilot has the combination of cards that were rolled (I.e. 2 red cards if 2 reds come up on the dice). If you think the pilot has the cards you stay in; if not, you jump out and collect points based on how high off the ground you are. IF the pilot doesn't have the cards, the balloon crashes with everyone who was still in, and collects no points. Everyone draws a card, gets back in the balloon, and the next player becomes pilot. Repeat until one(or more) players get 50 points.

TLDR: one of the best light'ish-weight games we've ever picked up. BEST with 6, good with 4.

Though the debate rages whether the original edition with Pass the Barn is better or the new version with legible dice, either way it's a great game.
