A new game at our house! A thinking activity for my big boys. This isn’t your average looking game though.
Open the box and you’ll find 20 chunky pieces in four different shapes and a variety of patterned colors.
You need three or four people for a couple of different options to play. I herded the boys together one evening to sit down and play.
For this game, I was the Caller. The boys sat on each side of the table, with the same set of block in front of them. I verbally described what was one of my card and the boys had to listen and build it!
Who could follow directions the best?
For the four person game, the card is set away from the teams. The first person on the team looks at the card for 10 seconds and starts to build. The second person can then look at it to for 10 seconds and help comment or re-build with their teammate.
Which team can build the replica closest to the card?
Those are the two ways to play and there are bonus questions on the card too. I like these. For example, who can use their blocks to build two even towers. This isn’t as easy as it sounds when you have triangles and crosses to play with!
Even P’Diddy likes to play with the blocks and arrange them to his satisfaction.
