Board GameMonza Review

Monza is a simple car racing game. You move your car by rolling six dice to reveal six colours and then using each one to move along the colour coded track. It's novel because you can always find a few moves but to get ahead (and use all the dice) you need to carefully sequence them.

As play progresses you work around the three-lane race track. Each move there are opportunities to switch lanes which if done correctly, enable you to then use all your dice in turn. There are some obstacles you need to avoid on the track and you can land on other player's cars to move them backwards along the track. It's a great game for really young children that isn't just random chance.
