Here are the English rules for the two variants included in the EasyPlay XXL version:

Tripwire
For this variant, you need four grey cardboard sticks (the rules don't say where they come from, but as far as I can tell they are not included as separate pieces, so presumably you're meant to save the bits of sprue from the staircase slots - hope you read this before throwing that away).

Place three of the sticks (the tripwires) approximately one quarter, half, and three quarters of the way along the path. Place the last one directly in front of the staircase.

The first player to move a piece across each tripwire must take it and keep it. At the end of the game each tripwire is worth -1.

Inverted World
In this variant, the first pawn moved to the staircase is placed on the lowest stair instead of the highest, the second pawn on the second-lowest stair, etc. - it is filled in reverse order.

The only other change is that the player moving a pawn to the staircase may take any remaining chip from the pile - they do not have to take the chip of the same color as the pawn.

Dan,

Thanks! Are there any other variants for any of the other games?

All the variants are now posted (someone else did the Level X ones a while back).

I'm struggling to find those earlier variants. Could someone point me to them or, if they're gone, re-post them?

If that's not what you mean, then I am not sure what you mean.

Thanks Dan, I was just confused. Talk of XXL variants for Big Points had me thinking that there must also be level X variants for this game, rather than variants for a game called Level X.
