French for a thousand milestones, this classic competitive card game is anything but a bore. Players race to reach exactly 1,000 kilometers, by laying down cards in quantities from 25 to 200.... but it's not all smooth sailing. Traffic-stoppers like flat tires, accidents, and speed limits abound in this fast-paced family game. If you have a safety card, such as extra tank, end of limit, or spare tire, it's easy to balance out the hazards and clear the way, otherwise there may be rough roads ahead. As kids sprint to the finish line, they won't even realize they're building strategy skills and working on mental math. The race is on! (Hasbro, $6.53)
