Review:
Pete's Pike is a deceptively simple looking but highly intriguing logic game. The game is played on a seven-inch circular board (designed to resemble a snow-covered mountain) that has 25 recesses forming a 5 x 5 grid. To play, select one of the 40 challenge cards (10 each of beginner, intermediate, advanced, and expert), place the card in the slot on the board, and arrange the tokens on the grid as indicated on the card. Now follow the simple rules of play and see if you can get Pete to the top of the mountain (center recess on the grid).
