Cool game! I've had a lot of fun with it. I've won about 2/3 of them. Still don't know if the scenic route or the short cut is better to take. On one of the games, I rolled a 1 every single time. Went maybe about 5 or 6 spaces the whole time. Ugh!

I think i am going to send in my postcards since that will let me win 500 points for 3 years instead of taking a chance with the game.
You get to play 10 times. Each time you play your score is added to your total from your previous games. If you get at least 50 points each time you play you will get to 500 points.

Now that I figured out what to do, I won 2 of today's 3 boards and I collected 3 souvenirs. Added 65 points to my paltry 35 from my first game for a 2 game total of 100 points! This is so fun to play.

Bill
But if they give you money to offset the tax...you have to claim that as income

My 4 day total is 239 pts! I figure if we can average 50 pts a day with the 10 day maximum for entries--we'll hit the 500 point maximum...so I'm well on my way!

Yes, I lost my first day to the evil queen, then won everyday after that. But it's cute.

I've lost and won. It just depends if you hit too many tourist traps. But usually when I've lost I often get more points because I took the scenic route and got bonus points for Disney sites or souvenirs.

One tip, never use a souvenir to buy your way out of a tourist trap. If you win the game you only get 5 points whereas a souvenir gives you 5 points. I'd rather get as many souvenirs as possible--more points.
