This game is not quite like the version I and my siblings (and my children) grew up playing. It doesn't come with four pawns for each player, as the classic Sorry game does; each player only gets 3, and there's some weird rings they call "fire and ice" rings that we didn't understand the purpose of. That aspect of the game, we left out. We simply played it on Christmas Eve the way we play original Sorry. There were a couple of other things about this version of Sorry that were also different from the original/classic Sorry game, but I can't remember them at this time (I guess because we just omitted them). I only purchased it for my grandkids because my daughter put it on their Christmas wish list. She had no knowledge of the changes in the instructions and rule of the game and was quite surprised. She and the children still had a good time playing it, however.
