Characters in this game[]


Players take turns flipping cards to determine movement. If one draws:

  • A colored square: Move to the first unoccupied space of that color in front of him/her.
  • Two colored squares: Move to the second unoccupied space of that color in front of him/her.
  • A picture of a candy: Move to the matching candy space on the board.
If one lands on a shortcut, he/she can advance to the space at the end of it.
Stopping on one of the three Swiper spaces causes Swiper to swipe one's next turn.
The first player to reach the fiesta wins.
The game can be played in either Explorer mode or Super Explorer mode. With Super Explorer activated, passing the candy spaces will trigger a mini-game where one has to stop and help one of Dora's friends prepare for the fiesta.
