So near and yet so far! Gecko, Frog, Turtle and Crocodile are getting ready for an exciting race along the river. Which group of friends will surf to victory over the leaves and be the first to land on the tree trunk steps? Bold tactics and precision team building will be the difference between victory and defeat in this dice race game. Sometimes it’s worth it to make use of your dice rolling luck and move your team members forward from one leaf to the next. Sometimes it’s wiser just to wait and let yourself be carried forward towards the finish line by the flow of the river – maybe even relaxing on the back of a bigger animal. But there’s danger hiding behind the low-hanging obstacles. An ingenious pushing mechanic requires well-thought out turns and also rewards players with surprising moments.
This is a game where you really have to push your luck! In the jungle adventure Go Gecko Go!, designer Jürgen Adams has succeeded in spicing up the well-known sliding mechanic with some tactical variants. In this surfing race players have to weigh up which of their options they want to use to get ahead: whether they should push their luck at rolling dice and how they should stack their animals on top of one another. It all results in a merry adventure that always promises excitement and tension.
