TPIR: Rat Race
I think this is a pretty good game. The set up is really nice. The race track looks slick and flashy
enough but not too flashy. I've disliked the way some recent color sets with some games have looked, like Clock Game during the last years of the Barker-era set, because the neon colors really didn't flow. But looks wise, everything fits here.
As for the most important part, the game itself, the competition element with the rats reminds me just a tad bit of Hurdles; which I loved while seeing it played during classic reruns. It’s a shame that one didn’t work properly enough. The good thing though is that with the way this game is built, we shouldn’t have this kind of problem. Definitely one of the better newer pricing games.
