I've heard that this game should be a nice and good game, so I bought it through the auction site Ebay. The game isn't that bad, but rather a good game for children, as there is quite big luck in the game through the die. The transformable game board is an unusual nice variant, where you fold in or out half of the game board, each time someone jumps into a whirlpool. Those who are on the board which are going to disappear, have 3 throws to save themselves to the other half of the game board.
