I like light and fluffy games...

Not sure why this game gets bagged. The components are good and the gameplay does what it sets out to do: a light race game with some push your luck elements.

Don't bag it because it's not a Puerto Rico type game.

Players take risks flying their plane across the board to deliver mail. Some choices: take more parts cards to survive a hurricane or take a risk and fly quickly to the end.

There are some luck elements (card draw) and the Orkan shaker (a pre-Starship coloured ball shaker thingee). Fun!

Good filler racing game. Unique dice cloud. Not pure luck, you know the odds, you know your cards, and then it is up to you to decide what risk to take, which lane to fly in (safe-dangerous) etc.

A "solid Seven" family game which is really Can't Stop in disguise. You push your luck in this game by choosing which route to fly and use parts cards as risk mitigators. I like it. Light strategy and the kind of luck that can help anyone win.

A wacky game, but one with decisions to make (how close to the hurricane are you willing to go?) and a lot of player interaction.

Probably not ideal with 6, because the deck is too small.

Goofy and so very light, but fun to play with kids or when adults feel silly. I think a better game that was still family-friendly and light could've been made with a little better mechanic than the repair parts deck, though.

A roll and move game that doesn't quite connect with its theme. Repairing flying airplanes doesn't quite work for me. I played this a few times, but it never provided the fun hoped for.

A children game, but I'm not sure if childrens will have fun if their plane is always going down..., but also in the right mood some adults could have some fun. Best use, if you end a gaming session and you need a no-brain-burner.

One play, 6 people. Nice bits, but it seemed a curious push-your-luck game in that it was seldom worth taking a chance. Apart from the first time through the card deck, the proportion of 3 cards made an extra draw too risky, and the frequency of hurricanes and the severity of a crash made taking a chance there not worthwhile. Maybe better with 4 players.

I expected a whole lot more from such a neat-looking game of racing airplanes. Way too random to be worth its fortysomething minutes, and unnervingly prone to grounding players in search of a saving card. The cool plastic planes and the very cool "cloud" are saving graces -- I suggest you try creating a better game using the pieces.

{3 plays • 5-6 players} I don't mind the luck when it comes to shaking the cloud, but I haven't seen the card flipping rules work once in the 3 games I've played. One player has always gotten a crazy run with one or no 3's (and thus no risk to continue), and then gone on to win handily. In fact, only 1 of the 3 games I've played has been close, and that was between 2 players (out of 5). Pffft. Bits are nice, though, making me wish there were a better game here.

Not so good, as pretty much every single aspect of this game is about luck. If you get lucky on spare parts draws (which can have a crazy disparity between a good draw and a bad draw), you'll probably do well since you'll be able to move more often than everyone else. The cloud is a pretty cool little gizmo for determining movement, but really it's just a die substitute. In the end, good for a few laughs, but not a very good game.

Very dated and geared for younger players, except you have to open the movement shaker and change the tiny beads based on number of players. So it's not for children!?
