I wanted to introduce one of the best games for ages 4-99. We play this game because I wanted kids to practice self expression and at the same times learn about themselves, think about themselves and also learn about others. Other than that, we do it for fun!
There are two versions to the game:
For this version, you would play these to get to one another and keep it a short and light starter to a conversion. I would say people can use this to break the ice, etc. and you needed something to talk about for a quick ten to twenty minute conversation.
For this version, you have a game board each where you accumulate points as you answer questions, fight to answer questions, as well as do fun activities on a group basis. After a player answers a question, there’s a chance for others to fight to answer the same question.
In the middle, there’s a pile of cards for questions and another pile for group activities. Group activities include items like taking a funny photo together or line yourselves up lying on the floor to see how far you can reach. Many of them are really silly while others may have each of you say two lines of a story and make up a crazy story together.
Longer version can accommodate up to 6 players and each game lasts about an hour.
Why I Like This Game:
1. Increases communication skills in Chinese – we’re all talking about things and topics that are interesting! Kids end up chatting effortlessly.
2. Ups your brainstorming capabilities automatically – these are pretty open ended questions that deals with how well you know yourself, how to think about situations, how to answer basically… essay style questions. You can be sure some of these questions will come in very handy if your kid was ever going to be interviewed for private schools later or even writing a college entrance essay! Talk about prepping early! LOL
3. Family Time! – Involvement from the whole family! We gather together and just have fun together.
4. Low Stress – The game comes in a cute box and the colors make it fun already. Kids aren’t stressful and are more willing to share their thoughts.
5.You Can Play Without Kids – I dare you guys to play this while drinking with a friend (or date for the younger folks). Pwahahaha~~~~ Although I use it for educational purposes, makes for good drinking game… and good one to give to young couples who want to break the ice ( or break the honeymoon shyness…haha)
It’s now coupled in with a super cute gift box only for Motherly Notes members. To purchase this game along with the favorite brain game of Chinese Checkers, please follow this link for a very limited time and will be there for the holidays! What an amazing gift for under $50!
