I have never heard of a cooperative game before. Actually, I received this review product knowing I was getting a cute, eco-friendly, game, but until I read the directions on how to play it hit me. Cooperative. Together. No winners or losers. Loved it already!
We set up Peaceable Kingdom’s game The Great Cheese Chase. It looks a lot like Chutes and Ladders, but really it’s not the same. The object was to work together to help the three mice get to the top before the cat did.
The boys took turns with the spinner in order to move the mice. As they collected Catnip along the way, they had to make decisions together on when to use the catnip.
The game took about 10 minutes. P’Diddy got bored of spinning after a couple of turns so the big boys took over. I was just waiting for the fights to break out. These two love to have differing opinions and be Uncooperative.
I walked out of the room to get a few things done and at the same time was stretching my ear to listen. “Should we use this now?” “It’s your turn. Try to get a 2”. Then I heard shouts of happiness when they beat that cat to the top. They came running to tell me and I had the biggest grin on my face. Not because the mice won, but because they worked together to have fun!
