My family loves to play games, especially my daughters and I. My girls are always asking me to play board games with them. It’s one thing that we always love to do together. It gets us together as a family, and we have fun playing games as well. Being able to try out new games is always a fun experience. Every time I get a new game, my girls are always excited and wanting to play them right away.
I was recently given the chance to review some games from SmartGames. I chose five games to review. Those are: Dinosaurs Mystic Islands, Penguins Pool Party, Jungle Hide & Seek, IQ XOXO and Deducktion. What’s great about these games, is that they all seem to follow the same concept. My daughters were able to figure these out quickly, which is great!
With Dinosaurs Mystic Island, you can use all the pieces to create an island that is shown. In the booklet, they’ll have multiple ways to show you how you can make this island. What they want, is to separate the plant-eating dinosaurs from the carnivores.
There are 80 different challenges in this booklet. They’ll keep you busy for hours! It may seem like a simple game, but some of these are really challenging. I’ve helped my daughters with this game, and they loved it. It certainly can get tricky to get them all matched up.
I thought that Deducktion was a great game to bring along while you’re traveling. It snaps shut like a book, and all the pieces stay inside because it’s magnetic. This is a perfect game for my girls while we’re on the go.
