I think we made a good choice in buying this updated game. For $10.99, it has certainly surpassed my expectations. True, the board folds up in quarters, not in halves like the old game did, but many new games fold up this way now. Some people have complained about the plastic animal pawns, but I don't have a problem with them. This is a game, not an heirloom or a priceless artifact. These factors have in no way detracted from the game play and enjoyment we get from playing Parcheesi. The game is a lot of fun and we both love it. My wife particularly likes it when her pawn lands on a space I am occupying and she can send me back to Start!
The only thing that did strike me as a being a bit odd, though, were the dice. The box advertises "wooden" dice, but mine came with normal white plastic-style dice, similar to the dice you find in a Monopoly set. While the wooden dice may have given the game an old-time "authentic" look and feel, I have read complaints from other users that the wooden dice are too light and don't have much heft to them. So I'm glad our set came with regular dice. All in all this is a great game and has provided us with hours of fun and enjoyment.
My kids did have fun with it and we have played it almost every day since we got it two weeks ago. They like the animals and they like the board design, easy to play and understand. Even when there are only two of them playing, they seem to have fun with it. This version seems to go faster than I remember regular Parcheesi... maybe less spaces on the board?? I don't know.
I would even play this version with adults.... not for children only!
We did replace the dice with some we had from another game. Nobody liked the feel of these dice for some reason. Other than that... game on!!
However, this board & animal tokens have made a big difference. She loves the board and always wants to use the water buffalo tokens. This actually helps her remember what to do because it is always the same. I can tolerate many more games with her because we can play little pretend games with the animal tokens during the game. It is also reasonable easy to make sure she wins most of the time.
Anyway, this is a long review but I also found that the kids love it as well. The 5 year old is enchanted with the board/tokens. The 9 yr old is having quite a bit of fun with it. I grew up with the old board and the boring little tokens and this is wonderful in comparison.
