A Snail's Pace Wins the Race
Snail's Pace Race is a cooperative, non-competitive game that is part of Ravensburger's Imagine-Play-Discover line of early learning games for children ages 3 and up. Players move six colorful snail game pieces along the path of the game board, each starting from their matching colored leaf. All snails race even if there aren't an equal number of players. Players roll the dice to move the snails forward along their color path until they reach the last spot in their color.

Players Cooperate with One Another to Race the Snails
Ravensburger's Snail's Pace Race is an early learning game designed to introduce preschoolers to the basics of board game play without the pressure of direct competition. In this game, the snails race each other, faciliated by the roll of the dice thrown by the children. The game encourages cooperative play as participants work together to race the snails. Snail's Pace Race introduces children to basic board game rules such as turn-taking, patience, dice-rolling and piece movement. Players also get to practice their counting, color-matching, memory, and social skills.

Bright Artwork and Bold Designs Engage Children
Like the other games in Ravensburger's Imagine - Play - Discover collection, Snail's Pace Race features bright artwork and bold callouts to engage young players and hold their attention. The carved wooden snail-shaped playing pieces provide a tactile appeal and help deepen players' connection to the game.

What's In The Box?
6 wooden snails, 2 colored wooden dice, 1 playing board, 1 set of instructions

A snail's pace will win the race.

Players race six brightly-colored wooden snails to see which one comes in first.

This game is very simple and the directions are easy to read.
N. Beitler
We also enjoyed the aesthetic quality of the game-bright colors, nice wooden pieces, and a very sturdy, colorful board.

That being said, I still highly recommend this game for very young children.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This game indicates that it is for ages 3+. I'm not so sure about that "+" part. My younger daughter, who is three (and, to be honest, a rather odd bird), loves the game. Her older sister, who is a very typical worldly-wise five-year-old, didn't see the point.

The game is very simple. There are six wooden snails in six different bright colors, a game board with six different color-coded tracks for the snails to "race" on and two "dice" with six different colored dots rather than numbers or pips. The snails line up at the starting line (the instructions indicate that the leaves are the starting point, but my daughter insisted that the leaves should be the finish line - the reward that the snails are racing for, so we started at the snail end). All six snails line up regardless of how many people are playing. Players take turns rolling the dice and moving the appropriate snail forward each time its color comes up (a snail gets to move ahead two spaces if both dice come up with its color). The players make predictions about which snail will win and which will come in last. The winning player is the one who correctly guesses the winning and losing snail.

There are some pluses and minuses to this game, which is why I say it's a good game for the right child at the right age. It's perfect for my younger daughter because she's not very competitive and she's never been into traditional board games. This game allows her to play not to win or lose, but just to see what happens. If anything, she feels sorry for the "slow" snails and she will "cheat" to help them win. She really doesn't use it as a game, but more of an interactive toy to play with Mommy or perhaps a bridge to board games.

There isn't much to this game. For an adult or child much older than 3 or 4 it gets boring very, very fast. That being said, I still highly recommend this game for very young children. My daughter knew her colors at around 15 months old. I pulled this game out when she was around 18 months thinking it would be easy for her to pick up because she knew her colors and because she was a Go Away Monster pro. WRONG. There are so many basic game skills to pick up here:

How to roll a die.
Understanding that what you roll on the die dictates how you move a piece.
How to move pieces one (or two) space(s) at a time (one-to-one correspondence).
How to keep the right snail on the right path.
The game asks you to guess which snail will win after all snails are underway - doing this gets the child to understand about a bit about randomness. Just because the pink snail is ahead now or just because the blue snail is your favorite doesn't mean those snails will win when it is left up to a dice throw.

My daughter learned so much about roll-and-move mechanics from this game between 18-24 months. Then she thoroughly enjoyed just playing the game from 2-3 years. She's 3.5 years old now and this doesn't get played much anymore; we have lots of games that are more fun and challenging for a child that has mastered the above basics (try 'Max' for starters). She did bring it out last night and we played. Afterward she commented that there wasn't much to do in the snail game, so I think she's outgrown it. She does still enjoy using the nice wooden snails in her pretend play - they all have names and talk to each other.

I bought this game for my children and now I'm buying it for my grandchildren. Love it! They learn to take turns. They learn colors. They learn to count spaces as they move the snails. AND it's not a child that wins or loses, it's the snails. Like every Ravensburger game the box is extra sturdy.

Snail's Pace Race is a great first board game for three year olds on up. Maybe even a little younger, if they are interested in sitting still for a few minutes. The game is very simple, and only requires simple color matching, you don't actually need to know colors. You always move one space, so there is no counting required. It is a cooperative game, so no winners or losers. The goal is to get all the snails from one end of the board to the other. Children enjoy rooting for their favorite color snail. The 3,4, and 5 year old children in my preschool class love this game!

For parents looking for non-electronic games, Ravensgurger "Snail's Pace Race" is a very good choice as an introduction to board games. It is simple to play; does not take long to complete; and requires no reading or counting beyond two.

Like all Ravenburger games, "Snail's Pace Race" is sturdy and colorful. The snails are wood and painted using bright colors. They are nicely finished and have no burring or rough edges. They are large enough so that younger toddlers will not have difficulty grasping them.

"Snail's Pace Race" is a good way to introduce younger children to taking turns.

While some children may not be competitive, this game will bring out the competitor in children who have that type of personality. My grandson wanted to "win" even though he was not always able to do so. "Snail's Pace Race" also provided a good method of showing him that luck sometimes plays a part in who wins.

Parents and grandparents looking for a good introductory board game may want to consider "Snail's Pace Race". While it will not likely be a game that is played beyond the pre-school years, it's lessons will be those that are important to learn at an early age.
