I saw the game while shopping at the mall last weekend. I asked for it for Christmas, but I got the LOST board game instead. That game is confusing as heck.
I think I may buy it myself, but I don't know anyone (except for those here at RFF) that watches The Amazing Race and would want to play it with me. Oh well. RJ, tell us how the game is! I wanna know!
My hubby and I FINALLY played it late last night and while it was fun, it most definitely is a group game where you can have teams. You "spin" the spinner on the screen and you move where it says. Mostly they are route markers and you have to answer something about the city you're in. Occasionally the route marker will be a Detour or Roadblock but mostly just regular route markers. We played a short game (once around the board...long game is twice). You see video clips and when you land on a "Pit Stop" on the board, then you click it on your DVD and you hear Phil say what he does about resting and when my hubby came behind me (yes, I won), Phil would say he was last to arrive but fortunately for him it's a non-elim. We wonder if there are more then two people or teams, would someone actually get eliminated or what. The final stretch....8 away from winning, you have to answer a question about the final destination city. If you miss it, you have to wait your turn to answer it again. Each square is a different question. My hubby caught up to me but like I said I did win...barely. It was fun and can't wait to play again, hopefully soon with others.
I hope that explination helped some. So, how was your Christmas? Hope you had a great one.
