One thing that my family loves to do is play board games. My daughters are always wanting to play games, so we play almost every day. I love it because it gets the kids thinking and some of these games are very educational. It’s a great way to have some fun with your kids as well. It keeps them from using electronics too, so that’s always a huge plus. I would rather see my daughters having fun with something other than an electronic.
Blue Orange Games has some great games for children to play. I recently received two of their games to try out. I got the games called Dr. Eureka and another one called Fast Flip. Both of these games involve a lot of thinking. It really gets your brain working, which is great for children. That’s one of the things I love about these games.
Dr. Eureka is an exciting game. My daughters and I have had so much fun with this one. This is one that you have to move fast and you have to think fast. Everyone gets to start off with three containers. Each of those containers will have two of each color balls in it. There are purple, red and green. Then you have a stack of cards with different photos on them. Once you flip one of these cards over, you must try do exactly what the card says. Each of these cards show the different colored balls in each of the containers. You’ll have to use your containers to pour the balls in the other containers to try to match up the colors on the card. You can not use your hands to do this either. You just have to keep pouring them in to the containers until you get them all matched up. This is where it can get tricky. You’ll have to be quick in this game and think fast too.
Fast Flip is another game about being quick. There are actually a few ways that you can play this game. One of the ways is to use the token pieces and lay them all over so everyone can reach them. Then you have the cards that you have to use different sides for each. In the photo I show above, I’ve got one with all the fruit on it and then one has just a raspberry on it. That means that you have to count how many raspberries you see on the card with multiple fruit and be the first person to grab the token with the right number on it. In this case, it would be the number four since there are four raspberries. Some of the cards will also have numbers on them instead of a piece of fruit. If it has a number on it, then you will have to figure out which fruit has that many number fruits on the card with the multiple fruit. Lets say that the card had a one on it. Then I would want to grab the banana token since there is one banana on the card. It’s actually a very fun and simple game to play. You just have to be a quick thinker to play this game. I usually let my daughters play this one together because I’m always to fast for them. That way they get a chance to win too.
If you’re looking for some fun games to play with your children, I’d highly recommend checking out the Blue Orange Games. We had so much fun with these games and we still play them almost every day.
Which of these games would you enjoy playing with your family?
