Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Monsieur de Montforte no longer lives in his Chateau. When he vacated the premises, the highly acclaimed gourmet left behind a collection of the finest cheeses in the world. As the years passed, the cheese aged, but so did the Chateau. Now the mice that search the Chateau for the cheese treasures must be careful or fall into holes which have opened in the floors as the building aged, making the Chateau one of the largest mouse traps under the starlit sky. Welcome to the craziest Chateau in the gaming world. The three-dimensional adventure takes place on four levels. At the top, the Chateau’s roof blocks the view of the inside. When a player peeks under the roof, he can see the lattice of walls and rooms and send his mice in search of treasure cheese. However, once there, the mice must tread carefully as the floors slide unexpectedly under their paws and can reveal a deadly trap. For those who can avoid the traps, delicious cheese treasures await. Not only can children shine in Chateau Roquefort with their unbeatable memories, but they improve also their abilities to anticipate what lies ahead. Adults will also find the game an exciting challenge, again and again. The game comes with a two-sided board for two different scenarios.

A clever idea is Chateau Roquefort. The game box becomes the castle; the board becomes the castle top. Sliding tiles along the roof beams allow for mouse mayhem. The game scales extremely well among generations, with deepish strategy layers holding adult attention while providing a fresh, exciting surface interface for kids. And the mouse falling into the dungeon through the sliding trap door has an equal effect on everyone; it's a hoot (unless its your mouse, of course).

The game board is elevated off the table like a four sided stage and makes an excellent venue. The cheese tiles and wooden mice are very nicely done (this is a German production, after all). A memory game to a large extent, players who can remember where all the tasty cheeses have slid around to when they disappear from view will have a big advantage. Opportunities abound to snatch cheese though (object is to gather an assortment of different types of cheese: gouda, Swiss, cheddar, et al) even if you are attention challenged.

Not a game I would turn my kids loose with; there are far too many bits and pieces to get lost or sorted out, and there is the potential for a certain amount of aggressive play between players that you might want to keep an eye on. But for a game that effectively bridges the generations you can't beat Chateau Roquefort. Beyond the memory challenge and the connect the dot strategies, it's the kind of game that's fun to play no matter who wins.

I have an eight year old daughter who wants to play games with me all the time. Most games that eight year olds enjoy make me bored to tears. So I looked for some games to get her for her birthday that we both could enjoy. For all you hard-core gamers out there, I gave this five stars in the context of games suitable for eight year olds and adults alike. If you love Agricola and Puerto Rico you may well hate this game and for that I take no responsibility :). As an aside, when I bought this game, the checkout guy at the game store sheepishly admitted it was one of his favorites, so take that for what it's worth. The box serves as the game board, which seems to blow away a lot of game reviewers out there but I'm not sure why. The mice are well made, the other pieces are sturdy cardboard, that unless you lose them should serve you well. Basically the game is Memory but the pieces move. The strategy is minimal but that's what makes it playable with kids. There is some luck involved but not so much that there is no point in playing (Candyland, anyone?). A game lasts anywhere from 20-40 minutes depending on the number of people playing so you won't need to take breaks or quit before it's over like Monopoly. There's no reading required so younger kids can play too. This game allows me to spend time with my daughter and actually enjoy it, she has a chance of winning without me letting her do so so it's a winner all around. The rules are fairly straightforward and well written and it doesn't take long to explain to new players how to play. Setting up the board to play is a little tedious but that's the only real complaint. If you have kids and hate the typical games that you can play with them, this may just be what you are looking for.

When my daughter came over the other day, she mentioned that ever since her 5-year old playeed this game with me, it's all he talked about. I taught her and my wife how to play it also, and us big folk actually like the game a lot too. it requires memory, a bit of strategy and planning, and a good sense of humor. This isn't mind-numbingly childish like Candy Land, but really a family game that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

This was a fun game, especially if you're under 10. You have to earn a certain number of cheese cards to win - but it's hard because other players can rearrange the board at any time! My 8-year old enjoyed the game, my 12-year old was terrifically punitive as she rearranged the board to dump other players' mice into the dungeons, and my husband and I got a teensy bit bored. It was fun to play because my kids got so involved. I hope that will last, so this game won't end up at the back of the closet until the next garage-sale we have!
