Very nice game for the young and old. Not a strategic deep dive but some thinking involved and enough luck factor that even younger children have a fair chance against adults

My 5 year old really likes this game and requires very little help to play. His favorite thing with this game is that he can actually win against his older brother. Also, the game presents well, the bits and pieces are of good quality.

'Wings of War' the sailing game.

Very pleasant and simple race game. Requires a little hand management, a very little screwage.

v quick to play and visually pleasing. One to play with younger gamers

Simple movement mechanism like Wings of War. A very light but extremely aesthetic filler, with some card chaos but all over in 10-15 mins. Great sorbet. Owned by my daughter.

Je moet met je bootje een parcours langs 2 booeien en terug afleggen door kaartjes met pijlen voor je boot te leggen. Heel leuk voor kinderen, iets minder voor volwassenen. Zou leuker zijn met een moeilijker parcours en misschien met meer spelers. Jammer dat botsen en saboteren niet mag.

Children's game rating. Nice to look at, interesting mechanism, quite fun to play - albeit it gets rather long with four. It's also rather luck-dependent which is not a big deal when it comes to children's games. There is some hand-management added, yes, but still it mostly depends on the cards you draw. Still, for 5-year-olds, it's rather good.

This is a nice little game where the table you play on acts as a lake and players use their cards to move the boat around. It's an enjoyable game but, there is one big problem. While the boats look really cool, they're not very easy to play with, mostly due to being top heavy and wobbly. So, every other turn, a boat would fall over or get moved on accident. I'm thinking I might sand down the boats and see if it plays better the next time around with flat boats.

In the confusion and the aftermath you are my signal fire. Hold me close, 'cause I need you to guide me to safety. The only resolution and the only joy is the faint spark of forgiveness in your eyes, I don't want to wait forever...

Wings of War without machine guns? Something is missing here. Maybe too much luck based, maybe I am missing some opportunities to attack or at least hinder the other players. However, it is a nice simple family friendly racing game. Rating after one play.

Fun game with little children. Not to be taken seriously with them though! As much about motor skills to balance the boats as anything else. Played and enjoyed by my three and a half year old, it's not complicated.

Somehow I remain charmed by this game, despite the gameplay itself feeling limited and arbitrary. More fun with more players.

OK card vectoring boat race primarily for kids. Pleasant, laid back game. However I may be retarded, but I don't get why the Gigamic edition has all those very nice, but very wobbly and unstable bits? It's barely playable as it is, so with a little uncertainty I sanded the bottom of the boats flat, and glued the flags on washers, to be able to play without constantly readjusting everything.

I thought this would be easy for my younger children (3 and 5) but they have a hard time with the concept of the mechanic.

This game was a good idea, but I think the 1967 Regatta is a better game and the mechanic in that one is simple enough for my 9 year old and my 7 year old just needs a little help.

A nice family maritime racing game. The movement mechanism is a rethink of Wings of War, cards placed in continuation of the boat directing the travel, with a few extra tricks up its sleeve.

Looks simple enough to play for kids, possibly down to age 3 or 4.

After playing this a couple of times, I find that I want something more than this game. I think I'll design it myself

Un jeu de course de bateaux sans plateau : on peut y jouer partout, sur la table, sous la table, autour de la cuvette des toilette. Bref, c'est du "Sacré chameau", en plus tarabiscoté.

This rating is not fair since it is a children's game and I love playing it with my 5 year old nephew. Once he even beat me without me letting him!
Great spatial deduction game for youngsters and hardly serious for grownups.

What a horrible game. It's like wings of war, but it takes out anything useful or fun you can do.

Advanced start: Circle the yachts without crossing the starting line, up until any one player plays a sun card. The sun card indicates that the race is on!

Played this way the sun card will not subject any ship to the doldrums.

Why am I considering this? The ships are cool, but I doubt I have the right game group to be interested in it. Besides which, I have a hard time with these square boxes and storage.
