Spot It! Family game

[ Thia and Maria are the winners of this giveaway. Thank you to Blue Orange Games for sponsoring it. You can purchase Spot It at Amazon - and I heartily recommend it for every family with little children or disabled children.]

Remember the last one I reviewed - Chickyboom?  We're still having fun with that chez Curtis.

Now the folks at Blue Orange sent us this simple fun game - Spot It, which is currently rated the #1 card game at Amazon!

Spot It games are instantly accessible, take about 30 seconds to learn, and is enjoyable for everyone from ages 7 - 100. The game gets intense, fast, and sometimes noisy, but most of all it's flat out fun and never gets old.

Put your visual perception skills to the test with Spot It, a fun, fast-paced, and simple card game that everyone aged 7 years and up can enjoy. In a group of two to eight players, you'll draw cards and match symbols, like light bulbs, snowmen, or puppies, but with one catch--only one matching symbol exists between any two cards. The first person to spot the matching symbol and call it out wins.

Fast-Paced Observation Game for the Whole Family

The Spot It game consists of 55 circular cards, each decorated with eight symbols. There are more than 50 symbols in all, including images of hearts, snowflakes, dragons, and lightning bolts, as well as words such as Stop, Art, and OK. The symbols are universal in nature, allowing everyone, including young children, to participate in the family fun.

Because the game requires quick mental processing, it moves fast, challenging your visual perception, memory, and matching skills. Your group of two to eight players will delight in spotting the matching symbols and agonize over getting beat to the punch by a faster player.

Spot the Matching Symbol to Win

Playing this card game is easy. Simply draw two cards at random and place them face up on the table so that everyone can see. Find the matching symbol between the two cards. The first player to call out the name of the matching symbol wins. The winning player then draws two new cards, places them on the table, and repeats the process.

If two players are tied for first at the end of the game, the winner is settled by having a duel. Each player draws one card and places it face up on the table at the same time. The first player to spot the matching symbol between the cards and call it out wins the duel.

Play Five Individual Mini-Games

In addition to regular game play, this game lets players choose from five individual mini-games with separate rules and objectives. Choose such contests as The Tower, The Well, Hot Potato, The Poisoned Gift, or Triplet and play them in any order. The player who wins the most mini-games becomes the champion.

This card game comes with everything you'll need to play, including a convenient travel-size tin container so you can take this card game to parties or on trips.

This looks like fun to take on family vacation. Please leave a comment for a giveaway 5/22. Not sure how many BlueOrange is setting aside yet, but will post the number when I know.
