Iditarod Dogsled Race Game is an informative and imaginative game about the real-life race held in the state of Alaska every year.
• This game may be played as a “learn as you go” game. Even if your child or student does not know the answers when they start the game, they may find answers on an information card later in the game.
• After students play the game and learn facts about the race they may write a story about what it would be like for them to be in the race.
• There are 102 playing cards: 40 information cards; 18 question cards, 18 disadvantage weather cards; 6 advantage weather cards; 12 mandatory disadvantage cards; 4 task cards; 2 good luck cards; one bad luck card; and one bonus card.
• The game board has 25 checkpoints, which comes directly from the official map of the Iditarod’s race.
• Players will move on the game board from one checkpoint to the next.
• There are fictitious mushers with lead dog cards: four mushers for boys and four mushers for girls.
