This review is from: Deluxe Candyland (Toy)
There isn't much deluxe about this game except the increased price. The non-deluxe plastic tokens have been replaced with dumb semi-flexible figurines. The game board folds into six sections (instead of in 1/2) so it doesn't lay flat unless played on a flat hard surface. Forget playing it on the bed as nothing will remain level. The two plastic bridges and castle have no way to insert into the game board and tend to move around and get in the way of game play. If only the game pieces had been magnetic, and stayed where they were placed, then I'd consider this to be deluxe. There isn't even a card holder/discard holder. The cards have the word "Deluxe" printed on them, oh whoopy doodle!! The playing board is loaded with busy graphics detracting from the simplicity of the game. So if you like this game, save your $$ and get the regular version.
