Rush Hour Shift (Ages 8 to adult, MSRP: $24.99)
Escape before your opponent, that’s the goal! The best-selling sliding block logic game is now for two players. Every move counts in this race to cross traffic. As you draw cards, you’ll need a little luck and a clever strategy to win. Should you use your turn to advance your own Hero Car or block your opponent? The potential moves are endless, and the shifting Traffic Grid adds a whole new dimension to play. Just when you think you’ve cleared a path to the finish, a shift of the grid can change the game!
Rush Hour Shift is a really cool game that allows the players to think in layers (my term). You have a board that you set up based on one of the setups at the back of the instructions. Then each player chooses a car (gold or silver). Basically as cards in a deck are selected each player determines whether they will use the moves to move their car, the vehicles that are blocking their path, or the grids themselves. The goal is to drive off the other side of the board.
This is a fun game that my daughter and I can play pretty quickly and the results are never the same. We have to constantly think of the best way to strategize our play. We have several ThinkFun games and they are unique and excellent for our family.
