On Pointe

On Pointe is a board game where players advance as a professional dancer would, from learning the basic ballet moves, mastering rehearsals, performing on stage, competing to become Prima Ballerina, and accepting their bouquet at curtain call. It’s a perfect gift for dancers or ballet lovers of all ages.

The game is competitive for 2 to 4 players and stays true to its theme throughout. Points are accumulated by collecting gems and treasures for the tutu or tunic score board, with the winner decided by total points scored at the end of the game.  There are plenty of strategic and tactical options available to the player when deciding on which dance move they select and when they apply their power-up tokens. If you’re looking for a gift for dancers, this is an ideal choice!

On Pointe Review

Jenn the Board Game Librarian reviews On Pointe the Ballet Board Game:

“There are no other games out there that tackle the topic of ballet specifically, this is a really unique theme and refreshing to me. I’m a ‘girlie’ gamer and having a game like this that speaks to a demographic like me is wonderful. The art direction and graphic design is really on pointe. If you’re looking for that perfect gift for a ballet enthusiast I would highly recommend this game.”
