A classic in a cute package
November 02, 2002

Sid Sackson's Can't Stop is a true classic. Simple rules, a fun blend of luck and strategy, maddeningly addictive. At it's core it is a subtle test of informed gambling: understanding how the probabilities determine the odds, and that in turn determines how much you should risk. Tactics play a huge role, too, though -- the 'smart' play changes according to the game situation.

Even without a professional publication, Can't Stop is a worthy pastime that could effectively be played with four dice and a piece of paper. This explains the abundant supply of computer-play simulations of this simple but addictive concept. But I must disagree with the previous review who thinks that the packaging is overly elaborate or expensive for Sid Sackson's classic. A no-frills publication of a grid, with accompanying dice, might appeal sufficiently to the student of probabilities, but there is extra fun in the cute elements here to draw in non-gamers. I like the little mountain-climbing motif and the attractive wooden tokens. The roll-out vinyl-ish board is delightfully retro. It all adds to the fun and broadens its appeal.

Five stars for a simple but classic game, in a cute package.
