HOW TO PLAY
Aim of the Game: The aim of Marathon X and Junior Marathon X is to win the race by getting to the finishing line first. Finish in the highest position & do not finish last.
Simple Play: Every player will get an equal go of the green dice to move forward. However, there are challenges on the road that will have every player competing to win extra goes of the green dice & avoid getting the red dice due to losing a challenge. The green dice moves players forward and the red dice moves players back.
