This is a fun game, and it doesn't seem to be very well know. The object is to buy the land for a hotel, then the buildings and amenities and the "entrances, " little red steps to mark the space so that players will hav to pay to stay there if they land on your entrance spot. The number of nights of the stay is based on the roll of the die.
The competition comes in because you are only allowed one entrance per board space, and the hotels are directly across from each other. You also cannot buy land or build without landing on the designated spaces on the board.
Since more buildings equal higher rates, it's a race for the players to get all of their buildings up and stay ahead. Like Monopoly, you win by bankrupting the other players, or just quit when the game starts taking forever.
A lot of this game is up to chance, but there is some strategy involved. It's easy to learn, and kids love setting up the 3-D cardboard buildings that you set up on each property.
