Comments: Year of publication is 1992. A quite popular childrens game, but will probably be a bit dull to just play with adults. It's like an advanced "Ludo". Difficult to put together the game board, if you don't mark up the corner support the first time you succeed to assemble it. Unfortunaltely is the blood stone laying badly in certain of the compartment inside the Idol. An adult shoould keep it, as you are putting the sword into one of the holes, otherwise do the blood stone risk to fall even if you put the sword in the wrong hole. The movable parts of the cog-wheels make the game extra fun for children.
