A child can begin by just recognizing basic colors. Each player advances along the rainbow path through the peppermint stick forest, the gingerbread plum tree and the gumdrop mountain. The players use the plastic gingerbread man as the playing pieces. There are colorful pieces in four colors and cards.

“The Legend of the Lost Candy Castle” is printed inside the box and can be read out loud. The game parts can be stored below it. The game board is colorful and has lots of yummy candy references. You play the game by moving the gingerbread playing pieces on the gameboard spaces that match the colors and pictures of the drawn cards. The object is to be the first player to reach the candy castle. There are specific directions to play. You can play with one color block, two color blocks and picture cards. If you are the first person to reach the last purple space, or move beyond the last purple space, you reach candy castle and have won the game. There are barriers along the way, like the gooey gumdrops, getting lost in the lollipop woods, or stuck in the molasses swamp.

No Fail

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

Much like snakes and ladders this is a completely random and no fail game for young kids that means it's all pre-determined by how the cards are shuffled.

Great introduction to board games for younger kids, but probably not fun for anyone with a competitive nature who wants to engage.

Bit boring for parents.
