Description

Sequel to Backpacks and Blisters (q.v.)
This time you are winter walking in the southern lakes from Ambleside.

In addition to Blisters, Chocolate and IT, you also get the Ice Axe, Rope, Winter Warmer, Crampons, Compass and First Aid Kit.

Oh, and instead of Sun or Rain, it is either Fine, Poor Visibility, Snow or Blizzard.

This is another game that will give you a taste of what walking is all about - but without any of those unpleasant side-effects - such as actually having to go and do it..!!

A delightful quick light game, yet interesting enough from the turn planning point of view to keep players of all levels interested, even a hard core grognard like myself

An improvement on the original B&B - see my comments there - mainly due to the incorporation of weather effects, and also manages to maintain the same charm. Good fun (so long as you don't end up with the heavy rucksack).

Nice theme - what other game lets you own Kendal Mintcake - especially as this covers my home area. Gifted to a friend who loves hill walking.

for my 'camping' family to take on our trips into the woods.

A generous gift from Alex! We played with 6. You can really get hosed by the random luck in this game. I did. But even so, I had fun. This is an experience game, and one where whining about carrying the heavy rucksack or your blisters fits the theme nicely.

Too much alike Backpacks and Blisters to be worth owning both.

Enjoyable for one play, but not one i'd want to play too often. Bit slow between turns.

Any game that scores points for having a cup of tea must be good. 50p charity shop purchase - mint. Can't wait for the Ragnor Brothers to make a game about Morris Dancing. Mrs Sorp's hot game of the moment. 5th play 11/6/08 - 'We are the champions'. No one on the Geek has recorded as many plays as Mr and Mrs Sorp. Rated highly because it is Mrs Sorp's fave.

This game had potential to be quite fun and quaint, but I got completely mired by the weather and had a terrible time. It revealed a fatal flaw in the game. Anything that can be this unbalanced - allowing one player to score less than half the points of each of the other players - cannot be considered a great game.

Interesting travel game. Similar to Expedition in that each player can get bonuses for specific sites. Different in that you must play cards to move. Thematic of hiking in England at these real sites.
