Board Game, Race, Dice
Reviews: BGG, H9
The second game we ever printed. It has been our most successfull game for a long time. Now probably topped by Ursuppe in fame and by Frank's Zoo in edition. Still gets continually reprinted.
Simple mixture of dice roll and some skill, maybe like backgammon, but most people prefer it with more players. The game comes with 40 varations in the box, which more or less slightly alter the system. (We usually play with the "doping rule" now).
Aim of the game is, to be the first to get 3 of his 4 hedgehoges from start to goal. The trick is, that the racetrack has six numbered lanes and every turn a dice roll decides on which lane you have to move forward. To use your forward step with a own hedgehog you have the option to take a small side step in between. But since the hedgehogs tend to stack on the squares of the board and only the uppermost hedgehogs may be moved, it happens quite often that you have to move another ones hedgehogs. Additionally there is a black field on every track on which a hedgehog has to wait for all the other ones...

What does the title mean?

The title of that is an untranslatable word play. Say Hedgehogs in a Hurry , cause Igel means Hedgehog and it's a silly racing game.
