Games have changed since I was a child. I’m sure you think the same thing. But have they really? I think it’s just that options have changed from the typical Uno, Yahtzee, Chutes and Ladders, and Candyland. My favorite “new generation” game maker is Blue Orange.
Our families owns their games like Spot It, YamSlam and TellTale. Now Blue Orange has a new game out, and it’s not just for kids, Battle Sheep. This is a game of strategy and we’ve played with our children for family game night and we’d played with only adult friends during a weekend getaway. The game is simple enough to be enjoyed by all, but it’s all about the strategy:
Battle Sheep is a designed for ages 7+ though we played with our 5 and 7 year old. I can tell that our 5 year old has no clue what he’s doing, but our 7 year old gets the game’s tactic. My husband and I don’t let our boys win, but we find ourselves trying to out whit one another and also trying to block our 7 year old from a win; in turn our 5 year old has managed to school all of us.
Not only is this game a fun challenge … but it’s cute! LOOK AT THOSE FACES!
Blue Orange knows how to make games that are appealing to children with their graphic and simple instructions, and adults because of their strategy.
Each game doesn’t take too long and is dependent upon players thought time to strategize.
From our family of four, Battle Sheep get eight thumbs up! You can get Blue Orange’s Battle Sheep at your local gaming shop or score great deals on Amazon. In fact, the price is around $30 depending on your retailer, so this is a great NEW game to add to your shopping list for birthdays and dare I say it … CHRISTMAS!
