I've looked at and thought about buying this game for quite a while before actually getting it. I wish I had gotten it sooner, this is a lot of fun and is challenging even for adults. Rush Hour is a single player puzzle game. You choose a game card and set up the board according to the pattern on the card. Your object is to drive the cars forward and in reverse to get the red car out of traffic. There are 11 cars and 4 trucks in addition to the red car. The basic game comes with 40 cards from beginner to expert. Game base has a storage drawer for the deck. My game came with a fabric storage bag to keep everything together between game plays. There are 3 expansions available, with harder challenges and new cars to move through traffic. All of the cards have the game solution on the back so you can see how to solve the puzzle if you get stuck. Everyone in my family really enjoy playing and solving the puzzles. My reluctant learner has a great time solving the puzzles and I know his 'playtime' is educational. We've turned it into a contest, seeing who can solve the puzzles the fastest. Everyone in my family has gotten into playing the game. My middle child gets very excited when she beats Mom or Dad while solving a puzzle.
