Leaps and Ledges by Mindware Take friendly competition to a new level as you race your opponents to the top of this colorful tower! Leaps and Ledges puts a twist to the traditional board game with its intriguing design—sending daring players up and down instead of around. Play your cards just right to move your pawns up in small steps or big leaps—but beware; only pawns of the same color can occupy a level. Some cards allow you to sabotage your opponents by sending them down levels or by knocking them off completely. Watch out for sneaky players on a rampage—they will knock everyone off on their way up! Wild cards add suspense to the mix by knocking opponents backwards or forcing them to overshoot the top crown. To be safe, move your pawns in pairs and protect them from attacks. The first player to get all four of their pawns to the top is the tower champion! With multiple strategy tricks to learn, you'll be tempted to challenge family and friends again and again!
