The Yeti Slalom

The Yeti Slalom

The Yeti Slalom Maker:  Rio Grande Games Players: 3-5Age: 8+Length: 30 min Once each year, the coolest Snowboard teams compete in the prestigious Himalaya Grand Prix. The course is difficult, so the team captains enter only their best people in the race. To improve their chances, the captains hire Yetis to knock opponents’ racers off their snowboards with large snowballs. Will such unfair practices lead to success? Perhaps! With skill and luck, a player can move his best snowboarders across the finish line while hindering his opponents’ racers. The player who does this the best wins the game.

Trying to see how the pieces fit and re-assessing where they can go if they do not fit is a good exercise to check and re-evaluate the choices. Each piece can only come in one place, so there is no compromise and negotiation that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to continually re-evaluate his decisions and learns to be patient with the process because it is an integral part of the game.
