On the wild rapids of the Niagara River, fearless canoers battle the water and each other to collect gems along the riverbank. Of course, the most valuable gems are found furthest down-river...closest to the perilous waterfall!
- Players: 3-5
- Play Time: 60 mins
- Ages: 8+
Niagara is set on a beautiful 3D board representing the Niagara River and the falls. The players canoes float down the river as the river flows, but can be rowed both up and down-river in order to collect gems, return them to shore, and, of course, to avoid the waterfall.
The first player to be able to claim ownership of five jewels is the winner. But the chase after the riches has some snags as the speed of the river is always changing with the weather (and player decisions) and once a canoe goes over the falls, it's a hefty investment to replace it!
Not to mention there are the Desperadoes to contend with, who aren't above trying to plunder the riches from Adventurers returning home.
Awarded the prestigious Spiel des Jahres (German family game of the year) in 2005.
