Rush Hour Shift Game By ThinkFun Review

I've always loved puzzles and boardgames when I was younger. I have an app on my phone called "blocks" and I love solving it. When I received the Rush Hour Shift, I can't help but notice how similar the game is so I was super excited to play it.
The Rush Hour Shift Game by ThinFun contained the following game pieces inside:
- traffic grid
- 12 blocking vehicles
- 2 hero cars
- 32 cards
- instructions with 10 game set-ups
- travel bag
The Rush Hour Shift game may be similar to the app "blocks" but there are some fun and exciting twists.
Here's a quick description of the Rush Hour Shift Game from the company:

Escape before your opponent, that’s the goal! The best-selling sliding block logic game is now for two players. Every move counts in this race to cross traffic. As you draw cards, you’ll need a little luck and a clever strategy to win. Should you use your turn to advance your own Hero Car or block your opponent? The potential moves are endless, and the shifting Traffic Grid adds a whole new dimension to play. Just when you think you’ve cleared a path to the finish, a shift of the grid can change the game!
The Rush Hour Shift Game is a fast and fun game. I love how similar it is to the app "blocks" and yet it has its own twists which makes the game more exciting. I also like how the game needs 2-players because I can challenge hubby to play with me.

The game is based on a bit of luck (when drawing cards) and a bit of strategy on how I can surpass the other player's car. I also like how there are 10 different ways to set up the blocking cars so that we can think of other strategies to win.
