Cons:none

The Bottom Line: This is a wonderful game, it is set up for parents to play with their children to give the children and educational as well as a fun experience.


This game is a great game that children are going to understand. The rules are simple and it is fun watching them play and have fun.

The object is to collect the most picture cards.

You set up by choosing a playing piece, the pieces are thing 1, thing 2, the little boy, and the little girl. Each player uses the square nearest them to start, each square is labeled player 1, player 2, player 3, and player 4. players place one picture card on each space on the board so that the background color of the picture card matches the color of the space, ex. place yellow cards on yellow spaces.

In this game the youngest player goes first, each player takes turn spinning the spinner and moving the number of spaces shown. Play passes to the left.

The first time a player lands on a space with a picture card he picks up the card and places it on his player square. After you pick up the first card whenever you land on a card after that it must either share a letter with the top picture card on their players square or match the color of the top card. For example if the top card is fish you can pick up a picture card with f, i, s, or h. you can pick up cards like dish, house, milk, hat. However you can not pick up net, gown, man, etc. Also if your card has a red background you can pick up a card with a red background regardless of the letters.

The game ends when the last player reaches the finish, then players count the number of picture cards, the one with the most wins.

For an additional challenge for older children they can look through their player cards and pick one to be the top card using strategy by looking ahead on the board.

I think this is a great game because it teaches children early reading skills, to look for letters that form words and to learn to pair words with their pictures. The game also features counting, matching, and strategy. Also since the game is not over until every player reaches the end then every player is involved in the playing of the game.
