Your opponents may use their blocker cubes to obstruct your path, or they might try to steal your gold tokens by landing on your game piece. Of course, you can do the same to them. And be careful of other hazards.....you just rolled 2 spaces short of the jackpot and land on a 'switch spaces' square, which forces you to change places with an opponent. In Catch 22, fortunes can change with a single roll of the die. Be the first to exit with 22 Gold Tokens and you win. Includes large game board, blocker cubes, gold play tokens, game pawns, die and instruction sheet.

I saw this game advertised as winning a 'Major Fun Award' and you can bet your bottom dollar, this game is major fun. You cannot help but have fun playing Catch 22. As the name suggests, you need to catch 22 chips and exit the game board to win. But, also as the name suggests, you might find yourself in a 'Catch 22' situation. For example, once you win alot of chips, everybody else is going to try and catch you to steal your chips. Or, a player might land on a switch places square and when you thought you were home free, you are forced to switch places with an opponent. The strategy part is that you have 'Blocker Cubes' to try and clear a path for yourself or indeed block an opponents path. But be careful, you only have five cubes and once you use them up, you must land on a square which allows you to collect a blocker cube from the board. This is simply a fantastic game. It is fast moving and heart stopping. I cannot tell you how many times someone was on the verge of winning and in a heart beat, all their chips were stolen. Really, you should definitely try this game, I highly recommend it if you are into having fun.

Having twice played Catch 22 at a friend's house during this past week, I can happily say that it is not a strategy game in the dull, two-years-to-learn-the rules way. It's fun. A blurb on the back of the box describes the premise - accurately in my opinion - as "take the money and run". The board you're moving around is labyrinth-like, with token-filled jackpots seemingly positioned on every corner. What are called `blocker cubes' have the effect of empowering the players (not to mention that they are fun to hold!), and they provide the real twist to the play - these are the devices used by players to trap/thwart each other. When we played, we avoided the temptation of using quarters and other forms of 'real money' as substitutes for the play tokens (largely because there were children playing along with us), although I can easily see why others might not be able to resist. I also appreciate that, unlike most other games I've played of this genre, which are only designed for two players, this game can be played by up to 6 people (our first game involved 4 players, the second involved 6). Last but not least, you're always using your brain to figure out your next move. This gets my recommendation.

If you love the unpredictable, then Catch 22 is for you. This game has plenty of social interaction and combines skill with luck in the pursuit of 22 gold tokens. Just when I thought I was about to win the game, my boyfriend landed on my game piece and stole all of my tokens. Boy, that did not make me happy at all. The key to this game is to use your blocker cubes wisely. The cubes are used to either block an opponents way or safeguard your path to the money. Once you use the cubes, you can only retrieve them by landing on a 'collect blocker' square. You can collect any blocker cube placed on the board, including your opponent's cubes. I made lots of money selling blocker cubes back to my opponents. We were so addicted to this game that we played it all night long. I highly recommend it, but be prepared to either win big or lose your shirt!.

I bought this game in order to spend some quality time with my family - at the cottage, and on Sunday evenings. What a great investment. The best aspects of this game are that it is interactive (players chase each other), it is very quick to learn (great with kids), and the outcome is in doubt right up until the end. Adults can certainly substitute money for tokens and have a ball, and kids are just happy to be clobbering their parents or siblings. I highly, HIGHLY, recommend this game!!!

I played this game with my 13 year old daughter and my wife and a friend. This is a wonderful addition to our boardgame collection. It's really a game of pursuit - reminiscent of Packman in a way. Great fun chasing everyone around and trying to escape the traps you've set for others - and gotten caught in yourself. Easy to learn and great fun. Perfect for adults, and for the entire family!

For some reason I was under the impression that this was a really big, high-tech game for adults. Well, when I received it and read the rules, and then did a swift play-through with my mates, we discovered pretty quickly that it's more of a family game. My children will love playing it with mom and me. And that will be fine. But even then, it's not as fun as Sushi Go! or Castellan, both of which have a lot greater replay ability.

This is not a bad game. I'm not giving it a low review because it's poorly made or anything. It's just my opinion on the level of fun it will provide. Sure the family will like it for a few plays. But I think they'll get bored of it pretty quickly and be asking for Snake Oil or Carcassonne.

This game was a ton of fun for our family game night. It was unique, and involved a good bit of strategy. The possibility of being the winner could easily change from one play to the next, making this game exciting and fun.
