The Kids Stuff Only Real Deal Review on Sorry Sliders:
The most original facet of Sorry Sliders (and the coolest), lies in the ability to customize the board any way you want. Want a longer board? Easy, just set it up that way. Want to take off the safety rails in some places to make it more challenging? Done. Or just take off some of the rails and adjust the boards accordingly to make ricocheting your pawns necessary. If you want to get really creative, place some magazines underneath some of the boards to create a incline. While the age on the box says 6 and up, don’t be fooled. This is a game that can be easily enjoyed by teenagers and adults as well for family fun. The quality of the game is high as well, but what else would you expect from a respected game manufacturer like ParkerBrothers?
