It's a fascinating board game of shortcuts and surprises. Play on two tracks at the same time. Your large pawn moves along the outside track. Wherever it lands determines how far along the inside track your small pawn will move. The object of the game is to be the first player to reach the Home Circle on the inside track with your small pawn.
There are shortcuts on both tracks that will allow you to leap ahead. Shortcuts on the outside track are protected by plastic gates that open and close at the whim of their owners. In order to pass through an opponent's gate, you might have to be extra clever and wheel and deal your way in.
