Welcome to the snowy world of the Arctic Circle, where brave sledders race in a test of skill and endurance. Action is fast and furious and not all sleds may make it to the finish. Huskies only have one setting and that is full speed! Hang on to your furs, the reins, your sled and anything else you can get hold of.
In race order, the players move their sleds on the track by playing cards onto their sled mats. On their turn, the player may play 1-3 cards of the same value onto their mat. Their sled piece moves a number of spaces equal to their speed (dogs - brake), but will also drift towards the strongest dog. They may have bonus movement if their sled is balanced (the dogs show the same value). Careless players may damage their sleds, causing them to pick up dent cards. Dent cards limit a players hand size for future turns.
To win, players must control the drift of their sled carefully to maneuver around corners.
Found a review of this game online and couldn't wait to try it out. I've always been a fan of the Lamont brothers and this did not let me down. More fun with at least 3 players but 2 is good for learning the different aspects of the game like taking turns with a more powerful dog on one side or knocking other into trees or snow embankments.
If I was younger I would probably go outside on a mountain boy sled but since I have a family, this game is perfect when it just seems to cold to go outside.
Definitely recommend this game, perfect for the kids in winter.
