Pros: tin carrying case, different type of card game
Cons: cards are thin and tore easily
I bought the Peanut Butter and Jelly Card Game at a flea market. It was new and never opened and I thought it looked like a different type of card game, and for one dollar, who could pass it up.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Card Game is recommended for children four and up and requires two to four players to play. Peanut Butter and Jelly Card Game is made by Fundex. The object of the game is to be the first player to make three sandwiches.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Card Game comes with 54 cards and a plastic fly.
Shuffle the cards and deal two cards to each player. Place the rest of the cards face down between the players along with the fly.
The first player draws a card from the pile. If you have a slice of bread in your hand, you can lay it down. If they are not holding a slice of bread or if they don’t pull a slice, you need to discard one card. You must build a sandwich in order. First you must have a slice of bread, then peanut butter, then jelly and then another slice of bread. The peanut butter and jelly can go in any order.
The 54 cards include slices of bread, peanut butter, jelly, ant, and fly. If you pull the bread, peanut butter or jelly you can use them to build your sandwich. If you pull an any card, you can take a part of any players’ sandwich and put it on your sandwich. If you play a fly card, you place the fly on any player’s sandwich. This sandwich is now not any good and until the fly moves to another sandwich, you cannot play any other cards on that sandwich until the fly moves to another sandwich.
You must complete one sandwich before starting another.
The first player to build three peanut butter and jelly sandwiches is the winner.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Card Game comes in a nice tin. All the cards and the fly fit nicely in the tin. It makes it easy to store and take with you places. The tin has a carrying handle so you can take it anywhere. I like that the case is solid and keeps the cards from getting bent. The case looks like an old style metal lunch box. The cards unfortunately aren’t as well made. They are thin and didn’t last as long as the case. We ended up throwing away the cards and my son used the case for other items.
We have mixed feeling when it comes to playing Peanut Butter and Jelly Card Game. To play with only two players it can get a bit boring but if you play with four players, you are constantly reshuffling cards as you quickly run out of cards.
I purchased Peanut Butter and Jelly Card Game at the flea market but I do see that they sell it online for $8.99. I have not looked to see if they sold it in stores.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Card Game does not require math or reading skills. The game is cute for preschoolers but as my son grew older, he didn’t care for the game as much. I do think it would make a nice addition to a preschool class or a gift for a preschooler.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Card Game was an OK game for us as it was different from other games we owned. We would recommend Fundex Peanut Butter and Jelly Card Game to others.
