Race To The Treasure Cooperative Game
Players try to beat the ogre to the treasure by creating a path from START to END. Along the way they need to collect three keys to open the treasure. Players strategize, cooperate, and build the path together. If they do it before the ogre gets there, they all win! Kids love working together to defeat the ogre. Building onto a path encourages kids to think two steps ahead and to look at all possibilities. Game play changes each game depending on where the keys are placed. INCLUDES: 1 gameboard, 1 pair of dice, 37 game cards, 4 key tokens, 1 Ogre snack and instructions
Age Recommendation: Ages 5 and up
Warning: Choking Hazard
Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.

Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award
The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio was founded in 1989 as the only independent consumer review of children's media. The organization does not charge entry fees or accept ads from manufacturers. Award-winning products are selected by a noted expert in child development, children's literature, and education, and further tested by an objective panel of kid judges. Judging criteria include kid-testers' responses along with expert assessment of educational and play value, safety, age appropriateness and other factors.
Established by respected speech and language expert Sherry Artemenko, the PAL Award recognizes exceptional toys, games and books that, through their design, content, quality, and character, promote play that advances language. PAL winners in the hands of kids spark fun and creative play with lots of talk!
