Product Description

The players have teams of downhill snowboard racers and are competing with each other for the coveted Yeti cup. Movement is managed by playing cards to move their racers, but all players also have cards which cause the Yetis, watching from the hills on each side of the race course, to throw snowballs at the racers, trying to knock them out of the race. Thus, it becomes a sort of obstacle course as the racers race down the course as fast as they can, but always on the alert for snowballs. The player to get his entire team across the finish line first, wins the Yeti cup and the game!

Yeti Slalom misses the gate
November 14, 2002

The theme has potential, but the game is sub-par.

Overall, the artwork is confusing and the game is too elementary to have any real replay value, even for our young kids.

The drawings of the snowboarders and Yeti's are unclear which makes it challenging to just determine what racer you have and which Yeti is which. I would have preferred Snowboarder game pieces instead of cards so at least the game pieces would have looked cool.

In the end, even improved game pieces wouldn't make up for the over simplistic movement of the pieces and the random luck of rolling the dice to see whether you knock over your opponent or not.

We've tried to like this game, but it doesn't engage either the kids or the parents.

Unfortunately, Yeti Slalom won't get many more runs on our slopes. It has quickly found it's way to the back of the closet.
