CrossWays Board Game Review – review of Crossways, a family board game for 2-4 players. Crossways, a game of luck and strategy, is recommended for ages 8 and up.
USAopoly recently sent me some board games for review. USAopoly, Inc. has been creating popular board games since 1994 is a leading game manufacturer offering the world’s best-known games. We were sent five games… Telestrations, Tapple, Treasure Trax, Reverse Charades, and CrossWays.
REVIEW – The concept around CrossWays is to create a path with your game pieces that takes you from one end of the game board to the other side. Your opponents will take every opportunity to break your chain path and block you from getting to the other side. CrossWays is very similar to Sequence… they both use playing cards and strive to achieve a sequence of game pieces. The biggest different with the game is that you have to go a distance (vs getting just 5 in a row like Sequence), and you don’t have to stay in a straight line. So, as you pick up cards, you place your game pieces in the most effective fashion to get from one end of the board to the other. And, as the CrossWays tag states… “The path to victory is not always a straight line.”
CrossWays throws in a few fun twists to make the game more interesting and challenging. It can be played with 2-4 players or teams. This game is recommended for ages 8 and up.
CrossWays is a no batteries needed kind of game. Clean up is simple as well. The game comes with individual mini “ziploc” baggies for each color game pieces and the playing cards.
Overall, CrossWays was an interesting game that involved strategy and planning. The interest factor is what makes it desirable to play. There’s no high fun factor or crazy suspense.
