    rush in to the fun

    During the Rita evacuation mess a few years ago, my boyfriend and family finally got out of Dodge and made it up to north towards Dallas to stay at a relative's house. Twenty four plus hours later we arrived at destination to enjoy good food and good company while we sat and waited to see what the storm was going to do. Not even one hour after arriving I notice my other half playing this game "Rush Hour". All you have to do is to get this one car out of the parking lot mess by moving the other cars either left or right or up and down... Easier said than done. I only could watch for about thirty minutes because I wanted my own turn. ***Warning this game is extremely addictive. When we left the game had to remain behind. I searched and searched for it everywhere but couldn't find it until I saw it one day on the BN website. If you love games this one is a must. Everyone in my family loves it, including my 4 year old nephew.

    A "must have" strategy game

    Especially for those rainy days or when the kids say "I'm bored!"

    We love this game!

    My son started playing with it when he was 4. At first, he would just set the cars up so I can solve the puzzle. He's been solving them himself 2 years later. It's fun for all ages.

    i spend more time with it than my 4-year-old does

    i love this! i really like puzzles and this is a good one. i thought that my son might be a little too young for it -- he just turned four -- but he likes it and is able to get the red car out of rush hour when we use the lower number cards.

    Great game

    My son started playing this game at age 6. He immediately enjoyed it, and advanced from the easy to intermediate level. Now, at age 9, he still continues to enjoy the game from time to time.

    Great Fun & Builds Logic Skills

    I have a 10 year old that loves this game! It comes with a handy pouch so it's an easy game to take to school on game day or to carry in the car.

    this is a must have

    Hi I currently teach and I have used Rush Hour. The children love to play the game alone and with a group. The game develops problem solving skills. My math club students really enjoy playing the game. I wish I bought atleast 3 or four. I recommend this game for both girls and boys. My children at home also enjoy the game and often are upset when I take it to work.

    excellent puzzle game for single person

    We purchased this game for our 9 year old to take on an extended driving vacation. It kept her busy for a couple hours at a time. Good for spacial analysis, developing alternatives, challenging yourself. She completed 30 of 36 scenarios within 1 week, and still plays it. Even we the parents enjoy the challenge. We are going to purchase the 2nd set of cards. Well worth $15.00.

    not recommended---- I never receive its delivery.

    I never received my order for Rush Hour that was prepaid and ordered in the store from BN web-site. It still has not arrived after several inquiries
    and two months later. I am waiting for a refund.

    My nieces and nephews loved it

    I bought this for my nieces and nephews to try out after Christmas dinner. They loved it and spent hours taking turns playing. The younger ones were jealous they couldn't take a turn!
