I was immediately intrigued by the box and really enjoyed the simplicity of the game and how little time it takes to learn it and play it. I am always on the lookout for new games to play with young granddaughters and look forward to their next visit and playing this with them. I was given this as a gift and will purchase a game for my sister to use with her grandchildren.

If you are going to follow the rules... Which with children you normally need to follow. Allowing a design to eliminate your opponent in one move is a lack of insight and in poor taste. I believe designing a game where the first player wins is rediculas and a waste of time. There needs to be a recall and an upgrade with instructions. Not everyone has the ability to check for variants of play. If you want a real game play chess.

    Comments about Educational Insights Nowhere To Go Strategy Game:

    This game has a flaw my 12 year old son found. When setting up your five blockers to begin you can arrange them to defeat your opponent in two moves if you go first. Place four blockers in a line as close to your opponent as game allows and then place fifth blocker on right or left on adjacent bridge to other four pieces. Next move your player in a straight line forward as close to your opponent as possible. Place your next blocker on bridge opposite side of the fifth blocker you started with. Your opponent will only be able to move left or right on adjacent space. Your next move is one step closer to them. They are trapped. Wondering how much thought was put into design of the game? That or my 12 year old is a genius.

      Comments about Educational Insights Nowhere To Go Strategy Game:

      This will be a Christmas gift so I do not know whether my Grandson will like it or not. I am guessing he will very much. He loves tic-tac-toe and this seems similar. I am not sure if I like the plastic construction or not. I suppose for the price it is a good purchase. I wish the directions were a little more complete though.

            Comments about Educational Insights Nowhere To Go Strategy Game:

            I bought this for my eight year old son who has severe ADHD and Asperger's (high-functioning Autism). It is extremely easy to set up and play, and the instruction booklet is very simple and clear. We had a blast the first night learning to play it and going quite a few rounds.

            This evening we brought it with us to my in-laws' home to play during Christmas Eve gathering. The box is very sturdy and the game is easily portable.

            Games take less than 5 minutes and require strategy and critical thinking skills, but no reading or math. My son tried to teach my 5 year old (kindergarten) niece to play, but it was too difficult for her. So I would stick with the 8+ age recommendation. Perhaps an advanced 6/7 year old.

            The only improvement I would suggest is to make the colors on the pawns a bolder, brighter color because we tend to mix up our Men. Otherwise, this gift has been a huge hit and I highly recommend it!

                  A very attractively presented and elegant game--easy to grasp and play. My son is very taken by the game.

                  Bought this last night, and as with the previous reviewers, we quickly found a configuration of 5 blockers that allows the first mover to win in 2.

                  I like that the game is open-ended, but I found that the instruction copy and illustrations were a bit ambiguous. I actually searched for a visual demonstration online to ensure that "you can move as many spaces as you like *in as many directions as you like, over any bridges not blocked by blockers*." (I hope that last part is actually correct).

                  It's not a big deal to revise the rule yourself to a 4 or 3 blocker start in order to avoid the 5-blocker trap, but it's something that should have been picked up and revised in test play before publication; the instructions as they stand might lead some to quickly abandon what is a great and potentially deep game as "solved."

                      Since my daughter quickly figured this out to her advantage (as long as she goes first), we will take your recommendation and start the game with 3 blockers per player.
