My son asked for this game. I did not know what it really was but he played with it at a friend's house and enjoyed it.
So last Christmas I decided to get it for him. It really is a lot of fun and even I will play with it.
The object is to get the red car out of traffic. You set up the board according to the cards that come with the game. There are many different cards ranging from easy to very hard. Once all the cars are on the board you can only move cars forward and backwards.
I like it because it is making my son use logic thinking and his problem solving skills. This really is fun for any ages, even my husband and myself will try to figure out a puzzle. It is very addicting.
I also like it because it is a one player game. When I am busy making supper my son can easily play by himself with this game, unlike most other games which require two players.
Since this game is kind of small in size it is easy to take with us when we go to grandma's house. This helps him from getting too bored at grandma's.
I think this is a great game for kids and even adults. I recently found an African Safari Rush Hour game, it has the same concept as the original rush hour but in a Safari them. This will be under our Christmas tree this year.
If you are looking for a fun game that requires your child to think and use logic, you really can not go wrong with Rush Hour. I do not even think kids realize then are learning skills when they are playing this game.
