Fantastic race game with a unique left/right steering & braking system. There are plenty of different track pieces allowing a large variety of tracks to be created to keep the game interesting.

All the components are great, though the box is perhaps a little over-sized.

Not quite as interesting with only 2 players as interference is less, but the identical decks that each player has means that if one player gets in front early, the other player is likely to have better cards later and be able to catch up. An alternative would be to play with 2 sleds each & you only win when you get both sleds to the finish.

Dogsled racing with variable courses and movement using cards. Easy game to understand and teach and fairly strategic with the hand management aspect of the card-driven movement. Positioning on the track is another important tactical element, especially when going around corners or through the special track segments. Plays best with 4-5 players, game length varies depending on the length and difficulty of the track design. Fun game - fills a fairly unique niche in my collection as the only other race game I own is Winner's Circle but that has more to do with the wagers than the race. Another simple gateway race game I like with the right crowd is Cartagena (but I do not own).

Awesome theme! I think this is a very clever game and the fact you can make your own courses makes it even better.

Much better if you blend in some of the Mush Mush rules. Prefer to play without the break and use the break counters to replace the dice concept in Mush Mush.
Does seem to improve the more you play it

Superou as expetativas apesar de nem sempre ser bem visto. Transporta os jogadores para o ambiente de uma corrida frenética, e isto praticamente alheado de qualquer fator sorte. O sistema de condução do trenó é inovador e muito bem pensado. Funciona em pleno. A forma modular conferida às pistas faculta uma longevidade enorme ao jogo. Recomendo.

This is a racing game with a very unique system to steer the sled. I really enjoy this game. I know I wanted it after watching some people play it for 5 to 10 minutes. It is a really good game.

Has some complexity but is still easy to play. One needs to find the right point to push the limit to win. It's racing but utilizes a mechanic with the dogs that is different than anything else. Just good racing fun.

Igazi meglepetés a játék. A második játéknál amikor teleraktuk a pályát fenyőfákkal még izgalmasabb lett. Ajánlott kategória kezdő és haladó játékosoknak egyaránt.

Fun race game with a unique movement mechanism - you need to slide your sled around corners and that and the speed limits on the entry to corners are what make it difficult. For those who want a more extreme experience the modular track has sections that take the difficulty way up (including 'watch out for the trees' and the narrow ravine, which is a killer).

Having playtested early versions, it's interesting to see the final tweaks that have been applied and a pleasure to admire the gorgeous artwork of the published edition. It was also a pleasure to finally play a game of Snow Tails with Fraser and Gordon - even though I finished well behind in second place it was an achievement to survive the killer course and beat even one of the designers.

This is basically Super-Advanced Ave Caesar. The killer twist here is that your dogsled's movement is controlled not by one card but by three. You have a left dog, a right dog, and a brake. Your movement is both dogs minus the brake. But you also have to consider your drift from left to right. Whenever one dog is stronger than the other, your sled is pulled in that direction a number of spaces equal to the difference in strength. These drifts are like enforced lane changes, and they're the only way to change lanes in this game. The values assigned to left dog, right dog, and brake will remain in effect until you're able to change them, and you're never able to change them as quickly as you'd like. What seems like a strong move this turn may end up sending your sled careening toward disaster the following turn.

Great stuff on the whole, although the turns sometimes feel too slow when people are having trouble planning their moves. The designers, the Fragor brothers, have anticipated this problem. The game comes with a "Big Paws" marker that can be slapped down in front of the offending slowpoke. The Big Paws doesn't actually do anything, but it's a cute idea and a helpful reminder to keep dogs moving.

Snow Tails is a fantastic race game, probably the best I've found yet. The movement mechanics for speed and drifting are quite novel, the variability of the tracks is great, and the short play time keep me coming back. I really enjoy this game!
