Let the Search Party Begin!
You and your fellow players have a mission if you dare! Together, beat the Ogre to the treasure. Use your strategic and cooperative skills to design a path leading to the keys to the treasure before Mr. Ogre gets there!
Good for the 5 and up crowd. Race to the Treasure combines visual planning, graphing, and cooperative play into a fast-paced journey. An engaging game created by Gina Manola for Peaceable Kingdom, it’s easy to learn. Working together and agreeing on a strategy really counts towards winning!
At the start of the game you roll the color and number dice to lay out 4 keys. Gather 3 out of 4 keys on your path to get the gold. Will you go north, south east or west? Increase the difficulty level by using a timer for each turn (not included), or by placing one or two ogres on the red Ogre Path at the beginning of the game. If you draw 8 Ogre tiles before your team gets to the treasure…he wins the race, and all of you get to try again.
It’s a great game for young players as it nurtures cooperation and communication. Each game is a little different, so it’s entertaining for the adults who play along!
