I've loved Parcheesi for years. When I was looking for a replacement version to replace my lost copy, I couldn't resist the plastic animals. I am not disappointed. The animals are carved in a wonderful style. They seem like a cross between Hopi Indian animal fetishes and Art Moderne sleekness. They add a fun element to the game. The artwork of the board is equally marvelous.

The rest of the game is a little disappointing though. The board folds into quarters and is pretty thin, so it doesn't lay completely flat. It also only comes with one set of dice, whereas all sets I've ever seen come with a pair of dice per player. (I'll probably go to a game store and buy pairs of dice to match the colors of the animals, which will be cooler than all white dice anyway.) Not that big of a deal, but these two items help explain the low price.

I have fond memories of this game from when I was a kid. This is a great looking set, but in some ways the animal-themed board pieces work more visually or as a concept than in actual use. For example, one of the animals -- the tiger? -- is difficult to keep upright. And no one wants to play with an animal piece that has to limp around or always keels over. However, I do like how the pieces link to its past as a royal court game in India, that's cool.

I love this game! It's fun to play with 2 people, and you can play several rounds. I searched for this version for months, the price was great!

The kids definitely enjoy this game and often ask to play it by name -- The rules take some getting used to, but my kids love to block their opponents -- it's definitely a laughing game, and I like that the figures are animals. I've never played the classic game so I can't compare it to that, but I'd definitely recommend it... It's akin to Sorry! but more fun :)

I was excited to find a unique parcheesi game and liked the idea of the animal characters. We had played this with my niece and nephew and wanted to get them their own set.

Unfortunately the quality is pretty mediocre. the box is thin. the pieces are very light plastic and the board is just ok. Its not expensive, so its not like a disaster, but its not anything special. If I had to do it again I would spend a bit more and get a better set.

We purchased this as a family game night activity and wanted this updated version so it would be more appealing to our sons ages 10 and 12. When I looked into buying the one I grew up with, the kids were not interested. But with this animal look, they were more receptive and once we played they really loved it! I forgot how complex the game actually was, but we quickly got the hang of it again.

As childish as it may sound, the animal game pieces make playing more fun than playing the regular versions. I did buy a set of colored die for each player since this one only came with the one white pair which is okay but my family is used to everyone having their own set. Game board folds in quarters but is sturdy. My brother has had one for about 5 years and is still in amazing condition. I wanted one for my own family so I purchased it!

I bought this for my 5 year old for Christmas, and he loves to play, and we as a family love to play with him.

There is a certain amount of luck, but I love that there is strategy needed too, to win.

I loved playing this as a child so I decided to buy it to play with my 4 yr. I'm glad I got this edition. She loves the animals pieces and the board it's pretty. Having a good time playing with it!
