Monza is a car race game for children. Players roll six dice on their turn, and move their car according to the colours shown on the dice. The dice are identical, each having six different colours, one on each side. The board is a three-lane race track. Monza encourages tactical thinking as well as colour recognition. The game states it is for children 5 and older, but 3-4 year olds can join in the fun as well.
Six racing cars are standing on the starting grid, of the 3 lane racing board. But only the player who gets the right colours with the dice and makes clever combinations will be able to move rapidly ahead.
The first player throws all 6 dice. Now try to move your car according to the colours obtained. You must compare the colours of the dice with the colours of the squares directly ahead of your car.
After each single move, put aside the corresponding die. If you cannot use certain colours, your turn is over. Watch out! You can only move your car ahead and you must avoid the obstacle squares.
A change of lanes is only permitted if the far end of the neighbouring square is situated ahead of the square where your car is. If your car lands on a square with a car in it, this car is moved back to the next available square in the same lane.
