Editorial Review
This classic game of luck, strategy, and determination is easy to grasp for children as young as 6 years old, yet it's fun for adults and older siblings too. By drawing cards, players move their game pieces around the board, hoping to eventually accumulate all their pieces at the final destination--home sweet home. Sorry is known as the game of "sweet revenge," since players can send each other's pawns back to the starting line, thus forcing one another to lose ground and begin all over again. This kind of frustration may be hard for children under age 8 to handle. In fact, young ones typically crumble into tears of outrage when their pawns are cavalierly sent back. The only recourse is to teach children how to plot their own revenge, which makes them feel as powerful as superheroes.

An introduction to strategy...and good sportsmanship4
This game is a variation of Parcheesi. Rather than rolling dice to move around the board, you draw cards with numbers on them. However, some of the cards also have alternate instructions...such as being able to switch places with an opponent, split the count between two pieces, or move backwards to sneak into your home without having to go all the way around the board. Even very young children quickly learn to take full advantage of these options. I especially like this game because it's one of the few young children's games in which an adult can play seriously without "accidentally" making mistakes and STILL be beat by the 5-year-old! Action-wise, it's a little bit slow, but, hey...it sure beats Candyland!CAUTION: This may be the first time your children encounter sabotage as a game strategy, and tempers may flare. One of the most educational aspects of this game is that it gives you plenty of chances to talk about good sportsmanship and not taking a game too seriously. :o)

The only time children will say sorry with a smile!5
My brother and I used to play this game for hours on end. Yes, we would send each other back to the beginning of the game while laughing our little heads off in amusement. If you play the game enough, everyone gets a chance to win. So, most times we would play this until each person had a chance to win. A great colorful game with easy to move pawns. Great family fun, but easy enough for kids to take out the game on a rainy day and entertain themselves.

Add an element of strategy to the game!5
For those of you complaining that this game is too simplistic for adults, try playing the adult version! This is the true game and not at all like the simple kids version. The game is described on the Sorry! rules sheet. Instead of the cards being drawn one at a time as in the kid's version, each player is dealt a five card hand. This opens a whole new level of strategy as the game then becomes dependent not so much on the luck of the draw, but how the cards are played! With these rules the game can be played for a lifetime and never grow stale.
