Can you survive the traps & inherit my millions?
Never knew you had a rich aunt? Well, unfortunately I've passed on -- but I'm leaving my money to you!
All you need to do is come to 1313 Dead End Drive and escape with your share. Beware, getting out isn't easy. My home is filled with traps like the revolving fireplace, the loose boar's head and oh, by all means, please be careful on the stairs.
Plus there are other relatives and staff you should watch out for. Do you dare to take your share?
Welcome to the family!
1313 Dead End Drive is one of the best and most enjoyable games I have ever played. We bought this game 2 years ago four our daughter and it is now our favorite game to play on family night.
The gameplay itself is fairly easy to follow. You move characters around the board trying to escape with the most money. The fun part is your opponets do not know which characters you have a vice versa. You can move any character during your turn and you can choose to kill characters using various traps to give other characters more money. Our kids like the idea of being able move characters into the traps. You don't always need to collect a lot of money to win either often times during gameplay, only one or two characters will make it out of the mansion.
The only downside to the game is the board pieces themselves. Some of them are a little difficult to put together ot take apart, but once you get the hang of it, it's ok. Also some of the parts and pieces will wear and become bent after awhile, but this is the case with most board games.
We have the original version of this game as well, but I think this version is far superior to play. The game play will last about an hour and plays best with at least 3 or 4 people. I think kids 8 and up will enjoy this game and adults as well. Our daughter who was 8 when we bought this for her had no problem with the rules or the game play. And my wife and I both really enjoy this game as well. I will say it does take maybe playing at least twice before you can really grasp all the rules and such, but playing more than once will not be a problem. In fact the first time we played it, we wound up playing 3 consecutive times in a row and in the following weeks our kids elected to play this over video games.
It's to bad they no longer make this game because I think a lot more people would have bought it if they knew how fun it was to play. The theme of the game itself may seem a little dark, but really it's not.
I would definitely recommend this game to anyone. It's Great Family Fun For All, A Must Have In Any Board Game Collection.
I love this game I have the original version which was released in 1993 called 13 dead end drive. I have no idea what the difference in the two games are except that 1313 dead end drive has more characters and replaces the chandelier death with a different fate. My husband and I play the game very often, its a game for all ages. I believe its going to be the next mouse trap. Very fun game!
I use this game as part of an enrichment class for a summer camp. The first week we all learn the game, and in the second week we have '13 Dead End Drive' competitions. It's a blast and the kids really love it.
I am concerned about the availability of the game on the regular market. I have had difficulty finding the game at regular toy stores. This year we have searched on-line to obtains new games. One child found one copy at Walmart. It is frustrating to the students when they can't find 13 Dead End Drive to add to their home collection.
