Sorry! Disney Edition is basically Sorry! with a new theme added.

Sorry! is a race game similar to Pachisi in which you try to get your pawns from their start zone to their home zone before your opponent.

The game is card driven in that you draw a card it gives a number and you move one of your pawns that number of spaces. In order to move a pawn on to the track from home you must draw either a 1 card or a 2 card. You must land in your home zone by exact count. If you land on an opponents space you send them back to their start zone. There are also slides on the board that my help move you along faster if you land on them by exact count. You may not however use a slide that is the same color as your pawns. Any enemy pawns on the slide are sent back to their start zone when you use the slide.

Some cards offer options in addition to the numbers that are on them. Some allow you to split the total between two pawns, some allow you to move backwards. In the Disney Edition there are 2 new bonus cards in the deck that refer to specific players. They sat things like if you are the yellow player move 11 spaces, otherwise move one. Some allow you to draw a new card, some allow you to go straight to your home zone.

The most important card is the Sorry! card. This card allows you to take a pawn from your home zone and replace an opponents pawn on the track that you send back to it's home zone.

All in all this a pretty dull game, the Disney theme doesn't do much to improve the game play. I think Sorry! is a better game if you play with a hand of 5 cards and play one and refill on your turn, rather than a random draw each time. This will add a little bit of strategy to an otherwise random game.

What this Sorry games adds in addition to just being Disney looking, is the cards has special instructions if you draw a card that matches your color.

Sure it's a game for the Family and not the Adults, but the extra chance you have getting matching colors adds a little more "come from behind" chances there.
