We love Save the Whales! March 9, 2015
Reviewer: Jennifer from San Francisco, CA United States  
This is one of our favorite games! The artwork on the playing board is gorgeous and the pieces are beautiful -- all of which makes for a wonderful, immersive playing experience. As you move around the board, you collect SPs (survival points) which can be used to save whales one species at a time. As you play, you also learn about whales, their biology, needs, habitat, and of course threats to them. There is a real sense of peril when your whale enters the endangered path and begins to be pursued by the catcher ship -- and real relief if you can get it off the path before it goes extinct. It can be hard to save all the whales (we find we often lose one or two) but we are always ready to try again! We love this game both for its theme and for its play!

Return of an old friend February 3, 2015
Reviewer: Paula from Illinois  
Our family loved this game back in the 1980s when our children were in elementary school and junior high. Fond memories of sitting around the dining room table, playing it and laughing together. (Mom and Dad, too.) Kids are grown up now, and I'm so glad to see Save the Whales available again. Now three generations can play together. Thanks for bringing it back!
