Most races involve horses or cards, but in Elfenland players control young elves, who must traverse their fantasy land with all sorts of strange transportation such as giant pigs and unicorns. Each player must visit every city on the map and seek to find the best route for the modes of transportation that they use, while attempting to hinder the others in this light, interactive game. Players place tokens on routes with restrictions because of terrain and then use cards to attempt to finish quicker than the other players.
Winner of the 1998 Spiel des Jahres, Elfenland has been played for years as a top-rated family game.
We have played this game for many years with our daughters who are now 16 and 8. The youngest joined in on a team with a parent until she was 5, then started playing herself. We have had graduate students over to play with us and they loved it as well! Some things we've discovered: there is no particular harm in cooperating, it doesn't really matter if everyone else can see your tiles, and the city card at the end increases the randomness of winning - sometimes we use it as a tiebreaker. The game is complex, but once you know the rules it is fun for hours. The laughter that ensues from saying "then I'll pig to the next town" is worth the price of the game.
