Great Game

4/22/2019 by John

I love this game. The board looks very nice, and is fun to play with the family. You have the option of using real money (nickels) for betting or use poker chips, which both are not included in the box. The rules are easy to understand, and even my 11 year old granddaughter had fun playing with the family.

The game shipped quick and arrived faster than I expected. I would recommend it as a great family game or an alternative to a poker night gathering with friends. The rounds of play move quickly and it really holds your attention as you root for your horse to win the race.

We're a group of seniors who greatly enjoyed playing Across The Board. Not difficult to learn and only luck is involved in the game. No strategy to worry about.
Would be great for all ages to have fun together.
The maple board is beautifully made. My only wish would be for chips to be included.

About Across The Board

Classic Fun

Across The Board games are handcrafted wooden tributes to classic games that are designed to get families together. And they are made to last for many years of game night fun.

All the games—from penny hockey to horse racing to a king-of-the-hill strategy game—are straightforward and easy to play. This is deliberate because, to maker Kim McDaniel and her late husband, Ryan, it’s all about gathering family and friends for screen-free time together.

Kim and Ryan were inspired by old-school games they found at Ryan’s mom’s house. They started out in 2008 making their own games for friends in their garage. Across The Board has since grown into a workshop, where Kim runs the show.

The McDaniels' new-but-nostalgic take on board games is one we appreciate. There are no bells and whistles, but instead you’ll find attractive, well-made wooden boards that are crafted with a keen attention to detail. And we bet you’ll also find lots of kids and grown-ups who want to play them again and again.
