    My daughter is a ballet dancer, so I thought I’d give this a try. Another male, adult gamer friend of mine tried it with me and we had fun! We played pretty cutthroat tactically. The art is wonderful and from what I know about ballet from my daughter, there is some real knowledge of the dance behind this game.

  2. Jeremy Moshe

    Behind On Pointe there is a surprising level of depth and strategy. The game is fun, elegant and competitive – all things that embody the discipline of ballet

  3. James Staley

    As a father of 2 girls who are both competitive dancers, I can say that On Pointe is fun, engaging and allows the imagination to run wild. The mechanics of the game are unique and contain enough variety for many hours of game play.

  4. Chris Chung

    On Pointe is on pointe with a cute and unique theme, it lends itself well to being a cute and nice casual game.

    I disagree that this game is only for girls I’m a grown man and I want to play it.

    The mechanics look simple enough for kids to play, but interesting enough that adults could still get some strategic play.

  7. Brittany Maia

    On Pointe is without doubt, family-friendly and easy to learn and there’s still a challenge here is that’s how you want to play it.

  8. Jessica Elias

    ON Pointe is well anchored in its theme, capturing the essential steps in the journey of a dancer with grace as well as strategy and tactics.

  9. Naomi Laeuchli

    Unique theme, good player interaction, fun game board and movement system is clever. The game is a refreshingly original theme that you don’t see that often in board games

  10. Jennifer Bartlett

    If you’re looking for that perfect gift for the child in your life or someone that you know that is a ballet enthusiast, I would highly recommend this. The art direction and graphic design is really on pointe and I think the game is really great. The movement cards really embrace the theme and the rule book is very clear and probably one of the best that I’ve seen in a long time. If you’ve never played a modern board game before, you will really enjoy this.

  11. George Jaros

    The theme, artwork, and gameplay really brought the ballet home! If you have a dancer in the family this is definitely a game for you, and even if you don’t have dancers at home this is still a very solid family game.

  12. Snorrinosebiter

    Very thematic. For fans of ballet or kids doing it it is a fantastic game

  13. Sprayoncrayon

    There’s a lot more depth to this game than it works seem at first glance. While it’s technically a race to the finish, the game’s real decision space is choosing which waypoints you want, and then racing to get them first.
    The game has a great gameplay arc as you start of on the practice studio just learning how the movement works, then, as you get progressively further and see how others are scoring points, the game becomes more and more cutthroat as players race for the primo ballerina position and then the finish.

  14. M De Santis

    There is some real knowledge of the dance in this game with a lot more strategy than I expected, you can have a lot of fun. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

  15. MuchuCricket

    Unique theme and very easy to teach and play! I recommend a game with 4 players. Lower player counts do not have much tension.
