Pony Express – Grab your saddlebags!
Maybe it was the cool artwork and board layout that first caught our eye. Or just maybe it’s all the crazy elements within – rolling card symbol dice to determine your move, or rolling the dice to hit the other player’s piece in a duel, or rolling the dice to take out the Indians, or bluffing about the dice you roll to move farther ahead. Any way you slice it, it still adds up to fun for our family.
Can the whole family enjoy Pony Express?
While we really like Pony Express, we don’t think it’s a good fit for younger kids. Not that they wouldn’t love rolling the dice to knock over another player in a duel, but more so because it involves bluffing to get farther ahead – and for younger kids that just amounts to lying. And we don’t like teaching our youngsters to lie. As they get older, they’ll better understand the aspect of bluffing in games, but we’ll go with the 10+ age recommendation.
Check out the video to see how full of fun this one is.
