Home sweet home… that’s what it's all about! Since 1934 players of all ages have been chasing one another around the classic gameboard, trying to get their pawns from Start to Home. But it’s not that easy, because you never know what the next card will hold. Will you move forward-or backward? Will you hit a Slide and shoot ahead-or will an opponent bump you back to Start? It's a chase and a race, and it’s never over until somebody gets all the way Home!
This classic game of luck, strategy, and determination is easy to grasp for children as young as 6 years old, yet it's fun for adults and older siblings too. By drawing cards, players move their game pieces around the board, hoping to eventually accumulate all their pieces at the final destination--home sweet home. Sorry is known as the game of "sweet revenge," since players can send each other's pawns back to the starting line, thus forcing one another to lose ground and begin all over again. This kind of frustration may be hard for children under age 8 to handle. In fact, young ones typically crumble into tears of outrage when their pawns are cavalierly sent back. The only recourse is to teach children how to plot their own revenge, which makes them feel as powerful as superheroes.
