In Monza, players need a fast car, a good strategy, and a bit of luck to win the race. The coloured dice indicate the spaces on the track that you can to drive on, but which lane should you take and when should you start trying to pass the competition? The player who crosses the finish line first wins!
Monza's relatively quick gameplay and straightforward rules makes it a good early game for younger children and offers enough of a test to make an enjoyable family game. It is a good step on from the Haba 'My First Games' range, without introducing too much complexity.
As well as supporting colour recognition for younger children, Monza provides an introduction to tactical planning and sequencing, with players required to think through the best order in which to play the dice to progress and avoid opponents.
4 wooden racing cars; 6 coloured dice; 1 double-sided board; 33 cardboard tiles (24 accelerator tiles in 6 colours, 4 extra-roll tiles, 4 trophy tiles, 1 starting player tile); rulebook.
