I'm sure I read about this game on BGG the other day. It involves travelling up a river, collecting gems from the river bank along the way, whilst avoiding going over the waterfall at the end.

The players' tokens sit on transparent disks which are pushed along the board during play - sometimes resulting in them being tipped off the end of the box like board.

Nicely illustrated and rated quite highly I think. This is a game aimed at a younger audience but which also has quite deep strategy.

Many thanks,
Glenn.

I have Niagara and yes, it is a family oriented game. It's ok. But I prefer Antike, Power Grid or even Roads and Boats than to playing this.
