Includes:Age: 7-99 years. For 3 to 5 players. Contents: 240 cards, 1 dice.
Description:Aim of the game: win the most cards. Preparation for the game: At the beginning of the game the following must be decided: either the length of the game (at the end of this period, the player who has the most cards wins) or the number of points to be reached in order to win. Each player receives 5 cards. The rest remains in the pile of cards. Rules of the game: The oldest player commences. He will be the judge of this round. He throws the dice. In terms of the drawing indicated on the dice, the other players must consent to one of these 3 games. Card association: The judge turns over the first card in the pile. The players must associate one card in their hand with the card overturned by the judge. e.g.: the card turned over by the judge is a cow; the players may associate the cow with milk (produced by the cow), the duck (another farm animal) or even with a country landscape. Once all the players have chosen their card, they place it in front of them and each one in their turn in clockwise direction, explains to the game leader the association that they have made. Of course, with the cards that the player has in his hand, it is sometimes not so easy to find the association! It is the judge who decides, arbitrarily, on the most pertinent association. The judge then gives the card that he had turned over to the winning player, who puts it on one side, for it represents a point won. Each player then places the card used under the pile and picks up another card in order to always have 5 in his hand. Then it is the next player’s turn to throw the dice. He then becomes the judge. Storyline: The judge turns over the first card on the pile. The players select 2 cards from their hand in order to create a story with the card turned over by the judge. Once all the players have chosen their cards, they place them in front of them and each one in his turn, in clockwise direction, tells a story that he has made up. Example: I am blowing a bubble with fruit cocktail flavoured chewing gum and when it bursts, it makes a “quack, quack” noise like a duck. It is the judge who decides, arbitrarily which is the best story. He then gives the upturned duck from the pile to the winner, who places it on one side for it represents a point won. Each player places under the pile the cards that he has used and takes five new cards so that they always have five cards in their hand. Then it is the turn of the next player to throw the dice. He then becomes the judge. Each player chooses from his hand the card that represents himself the best. Then he places it in front him, face down. Once everyone has placed their card, all the cards are mixed, the judge takes them and looks at them. He then hands to each player one of the cards he has in his hand, then justifies his choice, explaining why he thinks the player has selected such a card. The judge wins each card that he has correctly attributed to a person. The people found by the judge also win a card (they can be taken from the bottom of the stack if the leader of the game has recognised everybody). The cards not found by the judge are placed under the pile and the players take new cards so as to always have 5 cards in their hand. Then it is up to the next player to throw the dice. He then becomes the judge. Who wins? The player who has won the most cards.
Love this toy! As an OT I am always looking for toys that can help develop skills in a fun way. The time element makes the game extra challenging and fun, but I also love that I can downgrade this game easily by taking the time element away for the younger child or the child that is still developing the form constancy and spatial visualization skills. Would recommend this game to anyone!
Very versatile and great quality. Toddler loves them
These are so beautiful! My clients love to use these in my therapy room.
I love this toy. I actually bought it as a gift for a 1 year old but thinking to get another for my baby because it’s just so cute! Really well made.
awesome toy, exactly as advertised, and awesome service by tiny trees. Got the order when expected, packaged beautifully. Thank you so much! Highly recommend.
Excellent quality and very cute! Imagination determines the amount of games that can be played with these little pets...and the little ones learn while having loads of fun. I combined these with the matching colored cups and a gator tweezer and my 3 years old granddaughter loves playing with the set!
fast delivery -xmas present so no further comments as yet
Was very impressed that I was able to purchase it online at the last minute. However, what I did miss was the contact details of Tiny Tree Toys printed on the voucher - I had to give the information separately to the winner of the voucher
My clients enjoy these items. Good quality toys.
As always, so much fun, and such great quality!!!
I haven't used these yet, but are super excited to start with it!
Myself and the teachers loved these wobble stones. I thought it would be harder though, like the stars, but makes sense why not. A little boy who had a meltdown, actually loved these and started rolling around on them and it seemed to give him a soothing experience.
This is definitely one of the better looking bug hotels on the market and sold at a reasonable price. I was skeptical weather this type of bug hotel would work but it's already being populated after only 3 months. Note that I also installed it in the beginning of winter so that probably caused the delay.
I love this set!!! Assists with laterality, copying and grip!
Great, quality and a gift for xmas
