Reviews & Comments

To play the traditional 6x6 Dodgem abstract you should place the second player's pieces along the bottom edge of the board (instead of the right edge). --TrevorLDavis

This adaptation of Dodg'em (i.e. "waste as little time as possible with lateral moves") might be suitable for young children. For older players, it doesn't take long to see the game is flawed: mirroring moves gives the first player the win, so that if the first player only moves forward, it is up to the second player to start moving laterally if he/she wants to avoid an automatic loss. This puts the second player in further disadvantage, and it only goes downhill from there.
