"The Mackinac Island Treasure Hunt Board Game is one of the best independently produced local board games on the market. The production value and attention to detail are exquisite. With art by the always amazing Glenn Wolff and high definition photos of various locations, nature, and items found on Mackinac Island, this game is, if nothing else, a work of art. Luckily, this game offers so much more!

What is most impressive about this game is it's flexibility. Within the box you will find 5 variations of the game, which provides countless hours of exciting, and ever changing, game play. Not only does it cater to every age and level of experience, but each game builds upon the previous one, making playing the game more intuitive and fun. The beginning game, 'Match Me If You Can' (a variation on the classic game of 'Go Fish', which introduces the players to the cards and all the aspects contained on them), up to the most challenging version, 'The Treasure Hunt' (which utilizes nearly all of contents of the box, and tests your skills as a sleuth in a very Clue-like game) offer educational lessons into Nature, History and Travel, all without feeling like learning.

This game is also appealing to a wide demographic of players, a factor that most games of this manner seem to alienate. This game can be played and enjoyed by area visitors, nature lovers, history buffs, and those who just like a game with interesting mechanics. Another factor that it holds is that is was designed locally and features a place known the world around, Mackinac Island.

And Finally, and this cannot stressed this enough: The game is well designed. The game mechanics are simple, yet fluid and are easily grasped by all ages. Additionally, they work well together with little need to reference the rules over and over again.

 All in all this game is fascinating to play with the opportunity of many evenings spent exploring it."
