Product Description

From the Manufacturer

In the wild rapids of the Niagara River, fearless canoers battle the water and each other to collect gems along the riverbank. Of course, the most valuable gems are found furthest down-river, close to the waterfall. Yes, there is a waterfall, and careless canoers can fall over the waterfall. Also, players must return collected gems to land in order to be counted. At the end, the player who collects the most value in gems is the winner. Players play on a 3D board, representing the Niagara River and the falls. Canoes float down the river as the river flows, but players can row their canoes up-river or down-river to collect gems, to return them to shore, and to avoid the waterfall. This game is great fun for the family and gives players the chance to plan and steal from one another. This family board game is for 3 to 5 players and takes about 60 minutes to play.

Niagara is a typical example of games that win the "spiele das jahres" title (2005). It is a relatively easy game with not too many rules and lots of room for strategy. Luck plays some role but anticipating your opponents moves helps remove the luck factor. It doesn't take too long to play, about 30-45 minutes and only takes a couple of plays to learn how to strategise effectively. Highly recommended.

Excellent artwork; the wrap-over board is genius. The game also plays easily, and is great for first timers. Love it!

Niagara is a great family game.
The theme is great and comes through as you battle to keep your boats from descending down the falls in a mess.
It takes about an hour but there is very little down time as you second guess what your opponents will do and try to plan out your next raid on the jewels bordering the falls.

The thing that everyone will notice and talk about first with Niagara, is usually the board design. The board is cleverly designed to sit atop the opened box creating a waterfall that is a major part of the game.

Each round takes about 20-30 minutes, and because turns are short, there's not a lot of downtime. Each turn you're moving, trying to get downriver to pick up gems, and then get back upriver to try to avoid being flushed over the waterfall losing everything.

There's not a ton of depth in this game, but that's not really a bad thing. You won't play this in marathon sessions, and that's the point. This game plays quickly, is fun, and has pretty fun and unique idea in the board that moves with your pieces resting on it.

This game is pretty easy to teach and to learn, but takes about a full round to fully grasp. After that it's easy to pull out and get through a few times and feel satisfied. Very nice if you don't have a lot of time, or want to play a few games in one sitting.

I like this game a lot, but I had to drop one star because the rules can be a bit confusing to read through. They are generally straightforward, but there are a few poorly defined areas. Once you get through the first round, everything comes together though.
