IL GIRO DI TAPPA
Giochi Preziosi, Italy, 2010
Childrens' game that somehow has managed to be offical Giro d'Italia merchandising. It is quite big and well produced. I mean, the carfbioard is of good quality, and the game looks better than I expected when I saw it on the Giro's website. This said, it isnot so interesting, of course.
The game has a double-sided board, and thus two slightly different games can be played. The main difference is that the game on the shorter board (the Verona arena, final stage of the 2010 Giro) is played with one die while the game on the Italy board is played with two dice.
On the squares marked accordingly the players either miss a turn, throw again, go backwards... No possible strategy, just another throw-and-move game for 6-year-olds. But in this category, a nice one.
This is Girbecco, the Giro's official mascot.
Lots of Girbeccos!
