This review is from: Haba – Monza (Toy)

I bought this game for my 4 1/2 year old son because he loves anything that has to do with cars. It turns out my husband and I both love playing it with him because it is a little bit more challenging than other board games of this type, like Candy Land. In this game, you have a race track with 3 lanes and each lane has colored squares in it that are staggered with the squares in the lane next to it. Each player rolls 6 colored dice. You advance your car by matching the colored dice with the same colored squares that are adjoined to the square your car is on. Sometimes your roll can give you different routes to take on the track and you have to figure out which sequence of dice will get your car the furthest around the track. After reading the directions, I thought it might be too advanced for my son, but he picked it up pretty quickly and likes playing it and the game is interesting enough for adults too.

My son received this game as a gift and we love it. He started being able to really play when he was 6 years old. This is one of those games that is equally as fun for adults. The little wooden cars are also so cute–they make the game fun to play:)

This is an excellent and sought after game for young children and great fun for the adults playing it with them. Don’t let the recommended age fool, you. Kids can start playing this as soon as they recognize their colors. If they can play Candy Land, they can play this. The difference is, with this game they will continue to learn rather than get bored, because there are actual decisions to be made in this game. Our 3.5 year old twins love this game. It’s one of their top three picks. They still don’t fully understand the strategy and tactics, but this game is helping them to learn skills like planning ahead and examining different options. It also helps them learn to deal with frustration when the dice don’t always go their way, while allowing them to make the most of what they do get.

The race track consists of three lanes of different colored squares. In addition, there are spaces you can’t enter because there is “debris”. Your turn consists of rolling six dice, each with the six colors of the race track squares on them. You then use the colors you rolled for your movement. If there is a blue space in front of you, you can utilize a blue that you rolled to move forward. No blue? No problem, just change lanes to the green space next to you. By looking at your options, your goal is to use all six dice if possible to move as far as you can around the track.

When first playing, kids can focus on learning their colors and making the connection between the spaces they can move to and the colors that they rolled. As they progress, they learn to consider multiple possibilities (i.e. If I use my green to move to that space, I won’t be able to go farther because I would need a blue. However, I use a white to change to this lane, I can move four more spaces with the colors I have!)
