Carnival Post: Cloud 9

Cloud 9 is a game I tried out at Gencon a few years ago and loved. I ended up buying it more for my family than friends. This is another card and board game hybrid, and very kid friendly.

The object of the game is to be the first to 50 points. Points are earned by staying in the balloon as it travels up and jumping out before in falls.When you decide to not risk it, just jump out and collect. Each level has a number of dice that need to be rolled. The die have colored and blank sides. Whatever colors are rolled must be matched by the pilot with the cards in their hand. If they can match it, the balloon soars. If they can't match the colors, the balloon falls to the lowest level.

This is a great game for family or if your group wants a relaxing game. I highly recommend this game. With Gencon right around the corner, Out of the Box might even have some deals for picking this up as well as other favorites such as Apples to Apples or new games like Pirate vs. Pirate.
