We received are game 2 weeks ago and played it right away. We all thought it was a lot of fun. We have several history games and this one was added to the collection. I see alot of negative reviews here. I don't understand why people are ashamed of any part of our history. Every culture had good and bad parts of their history. There was a time when Europe was so poor and sick with disease that the life expectancy was 35. There was a time when Asians were slaves in Hawaii. Austalia was build from the criminal prisoners of Britain. Every culture has some form of dark era or a form of genocide war. History is beautiful, and if a board game can be fun and educational that's great. You are going to tell your kids about the underground railroad anyway aren't you? So why not let them play it instead of listening to your boring, negative explanation that will make them feel ashamed like obviously you do.

First of all, let me start off by saying that I am an African American High School English Teacher. I must say that I find absolutely NOTHING offensive about this board game. I understand that turning such a sensitive and tragic subject as the American Slave Trade into a "game" would come off as offensive, BUT the object of the game is to test students' knowledge in African American History. There is even differentiated instruction with the cards: There is a multiple choice question, a single response question, and a more open ended question. All of the questions on a single card are similar. They just vary in level of difficulty.

I am curious about the very short and very negative reviews of this game. Have any of the reviewers actually played the game? They give no reason for their harsh review except that it is "insulting" etc. It may be insulting, but in what way? I would, in no way, be supportive of any game or book that was insulting to African-Americans, but what exactly is the problem? I ask this because the Underground Railroad is an important part of our history. It is a history of courage and the human fight for freedom. In a small way it might be about the whites, like the Quakers, who helped to make the Railroad work, but most importantly it is a story of amazing bravery - as anyone who knows the lives of Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, or Frederick Douglass would agree. If this game helps our children to learn about true bravery and the fight for freedom, about racial cooperation to achieve a pathway to liberation, then, again, I have to ask - what exactly is the problem?

I also notice that there are no reviews at all for the OTHER underground railroad game for sale on Amazon, is this other game not insulting? Looking at the product descriptions they seem very similar. This is very odd indeed, I am beginning to think that there is something else going on here, a kind of reverse version of when authors borrow a friend's Amazon account to write glowing reviews of their own books.

Having not played the game I have given it a "3" across the board just because the reviewing process requires a rating.

This product says it is appropriate for children age 6 and up, but the questions are quite advanced (high school level). A study guide should be provided, so teachers can easily teach the information players need to answer questions on the game cards. There are 11 spaces on each path. Players roll the die to move. That means a player could potentially reach the finish space in only 2 turns. Perhaps a coin should be used instead of a die, one side of the coin representing 1 space, the other side 2 spaces to make the game last longer. The game board is attractive and high quality.

As an elementary teacher, I was so happy to find this game. It is very educational. I'm assuming the negative reviews who found it "demeaning" and "disrepectful did not consider the educational value. The game was not made to offend anyone; it was made to educate to students about the history of our country. Teachers these days look for ways to fully engage students in learning and games are one way to do that. Students think they are having fun (and they are) but they are learning at the same time.
