Description Edit | History

This game is based on the events surrounding the Blizzard of '77, which hit Buffalo, NY, in January of that year.

To win the game, you must be the first to complete your day's activities on the day of the blizzard. Travel is easy at first, but the weather warnings continue until the blizzard hits. Then, you must complete the game on the Blizzard side of the board, where almost every space contains an obstacle!

This game features a double-sided board (Sunny Side and Blizzard Size) and weather cards that recount some of the actual events of the 1977 blizzard. The game was reworked for Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Chicago, Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Syracuse, Providence, and Boston as well.
