Description

A board game based on the Internet / electronic toy craze.

After assembling the 'Wheel of Excitement", arrow launcher and Buried Treasure Box, and labelling the dice, buried treasure tokens are placed in the Buried Treasure Box and coins in the coin box. Players shuffle ticket cards and deal 5 to each player. 'Fruit machine' and Random Event Cards are placed beside the board. Parts for Mini-Action games are placed beside the box.

Gameplay: 1. Roll and move; 2. Play one or more cards; and 3. Replenish ticket cards. Spaces on the board result in a player doing nothing, drawing a Random Event Card, playing a mini-action game if he has a matching Ticket card, or collecting NeoPoints coins. Matching Ticket Cards allow players to play a mini-game, and Random Event Cards can be played when drawn - and are marked now/once/permanent. There are more detailed rules for all of these actions.

The winner of the game is the player who gains 5,000 NeoPoints points - or 4,000 points for a shorter game.

Great game for kids or HUGE neopets fans/collectors.

A keeper. Minigames alone are worth it. Think Space Cadets for kids.

Nifty mini-games. Kids like it and it's tolerable to play with them.

Poor game for anyone over 12 years of age. No Strategy or forethought needed.

Thrift October 2007 Fun enough family game for young kids. Crazy luck fest with a hint of dexterity. Special ability cards are uneven and decided the winner in our game. I wanted to take this one back to the thrift, but my kids wanted to keep it. Nov 2010 - My kids still play this one quite a few times on their own.

In my daughter's collection. Not very good, but a decent kids game.

Used to have this and unsure if it has been lost. For a "kid" game - and I'm not saying I'm some old person - I still liked it fairly much. Good enough, small game time though.

You play a bunch of mini-games that usually rely on how lucky you can get manipulating a crummy structure built out of cardboard. Since everyone is at the mercy of the games, it's actually pretty fun.

This is a really fun game! You run around a board trying to collect neo coins and stop over people from getting some.xs

my children love to play this game. Bright colors and catchy artwork is a plus.

Not too bad for a kids game.

There are hundreds of little pieces. I've started throwing them away as I find them around the house.

One of my favourite thrifts for the indented dice.

It is missing the rules which I hope identify what some of the items are called. I have a contents list but cannot tell what is what. It is definitely missing some things. Box is very used and has a sticker.

Basically a roll and move + a bunch of mini games (mostly dexterity or completely luck based) + event cards that give a bunch of additional effects with some very light hand management as you need to get ticket cards to play the games. Without nostalgia this game would get a lot lower rating.

Purely random and dexterity/skill based, but very fun for kids. Captures the feel of the online game pretty well. Great kids game.

It is always hard to rate childrens games... This box really contains a bunch of mini games. Snowball fight - ummm... place two cardboard stands at one end of the board and flick a small snowball counter at them from the other end - even my 3 yr old was bored with this within 3 minutes. Fruit lottery or whatever you call it - draw three cards and match them up to a predefined pattern to determine your points - kind of like a slot machine... is this a game???? I guess as activities they are ok. But I think the games are even too simple for a young child as old as five.

If you have to play a board game with a young child, you might find this one to be surprisingly enjoyable. Needs a rather big play space though, and set up is something of a hassle.

Decent, more strategic than traditional roll & move fare. See my review.

With so many minigames to chose from, it keeps moving. A lot of gambling for kids to take in, though.

By
Still haven't tried. It seems kinda socialist to have other players win money off the mini games that you play.

Surprisingly fun. The family loved it, even my wife. Quite a variety of mini games. Components are rather hard to put together without thrashing them...not a bad buy for 15 bucks...

[color=#CC0000] My twin seven-year-olds loved it and wanted to play a second game immediately. GREAT kids game with lots of different elements. The core game is simple enough with character growth and variable powers via cards, and mini games within that include dexterity elements and wagering. An Arkham Horror designed for seven-year-olds. A shade longer to play than most in its category, so plan accordingly. Got it for a buck at a consignment store. Worth full retail in my opinion. [/color]

Playing out of the box this game rates a 2. It gets a 3 based on changes made to the nonsensical rules.
