A Wonderfully Whimsical Edition
on September 14, 2012
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.
