    This hefty volume contains over 450 games for kids and their families. Every type of game is represented: indoor, outdoor, solo, large group, card, word, relays, water, party, road…you name it! Since the first game matter is always, "who goes first?" the book begins by explaining several traditional methods - flipping a coin, rock/paper/scissors, drawing straws, etc. Following are the actual games, grouped into 13 chapters by category. Each game is explained in detail with easy-to-understand instruction and fun illustrations. A quick reference at the top of the page details the number of players, ages, suitable environment, and equipment. For the most part, the equipment and supplies for each game are minimal or "around the house" items. (The "Tabletop Games" are the exception; you will need dice, dominoes, checkers, or other special pieces depending on the game.) No doubt you'll recognize some old favorites like Password, Tic-Tac-Toe, Marbles, Hopscotch, and Kickball, but with hundreds of games to choose from, you're sure to find some new gems too! The age ranges run from ages 3 to 14, but adults would enjoy playing many of these games with their kids. The card games, word games, mind games, and tabletop games are particularly well-suited for family game nights. Trivia, historical background, and variations to liven up game play are included throughout the book. A handy index in the back lists games by name, number of players, and age level. 300+ pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Puzzles are fun, but if you’re looking for something a bit more exciting, check out this great fishing game. You may think it’s just a typical puzzle, with ten colorful sea creature puzzle pieces that you place into a fun ocean scene. However, the pieces have magnetic dots on them and you can use the magnetic fishing pole to “catch” the pieces and pull them from the ocean - and it’s just as much fun to try to return them to their habitat using the pole. The entire puzzle is made from durable wood and measures 9” x 12”. Believe me, this entertaining product provides fun for all ages.

    Boggle is a classic word game that people have enjoyed for years. Basically, 25 letter cubes are randomly placed in a tray and players get 3 minutes to see how many words they can form with the letters shown. Players score for each unique word they find and the player with the highest score wins. This edition has a larger (5 x 5) playing grid, which puts nine more letters into play than standard Boggle so you have better chances of finding more and better words. There are also new "double letter" cubes (like "qu" being on one cube) to make forming words easier. Included in the game are 25 letter cubes, the playing grid with a dome cover, and a 3-minute sand timer. With each game lasting only 3 minutes, this is quick and fun to play at any time!

    Players get to be fishermen in this game, complete with a bunch of rubbery worms and fish markets waiting to buy your catch. Players use their worms to catch fish from the "ocean" and have three things they can do with the fish: put it in one of their boats, throw it back, or sell it to the appropriate market. Each fish is also capable of granting a wish. So what do you do with your fish? Placing it in your boat means that you can not use the wish, but can save the fish for a time when the market will give the best price. Throwing the fish back is the only way to use the wish, which is pictured on the card. There are many kinds of wishes: bonus money, spoilage, extra boats, special fish sales, or moving one of the "buyers" to a different market. When fishing, players can see the available wishes and choose strategically. Players can also sell a fish right away. There are 7 markets that will always buy a fish for $2, though the markets which have one or more of the "buyers" mentioned above increase your profit - so keep track of them. Players with the majority of fish in a market that becomes full will score even more bonus money. Players keep track of their money on the outside of the board; the player with the most money at the end wins. 2-5 players, with game duration of about 40 minutes.

    Catch the most points to win this fishy game. The rules are easy to follow for young children. Roll the die and follow the "Fishing Guide", which directs you to either catch a fish, share your fish, or learn that your fish got away. When all the fish have been "caught", tally your points and the player with the most fish points wins! But be careful, if you 'catch' trash then you lose points! Colorfully illustrated cards include information on a variety of fish species as well as silly fish jokes that will tickle the funny bones in children of all ages. 2-6 players. 2013 Creative Child Preferred Child Award.

Comes with a giant test tube that is actually a soda bottle before it goes through an "inflation" process at the factory.

    Do you remember the game where you had to change one word into another word, one letter at a time? That's this game, only with fish! Each card features two fish with several differences--different eyes, fins, mouths, patterns, or colors. Your goal is to find a sequence of fish tiles that progresses to transform the first fish into the second fish, one feature at a time. The winner's the person who finishes first. Keep a close eye out, too, because if the last tile someone needs is in your sequence, they can steal it from you! Includes 32 fish tiles, 32 fish cards, and instructions. For 1 to 5 players. –Chad

    This uniquely challenging game is great for playing solo to build visual/spatial perception skills or for playing in a group to build those skills competitively! Up to four players each receive a square transparent "Doodle sheet," a dry erase marker, an eraser and a fish stencil. Players all look at a full-color, illustrated Quest Card, which details some sort of drawing challenge to complete, whether finding a path for a little fish to escape from the mouth of a big fish, drawing fish in open areas of the sea, or finishing a picture. Players look at the Quest Card, then complete the challenge on their clear Doodle Sheet. When all of the players have drawn the assignment, players take turns laying their Doodle sheet over the Quest card to see if they drew their fish or lines in the right places. Points are awarded based on how well each player's drawing fits with the Quest card. Two levels of challenges on the 18 double-sided Challenge cards make this game perfect for any age. I can only hope they come out with Quest Card expansions! – Jess

    Use the magnetic tile pieces to help some animals hide while others remain in the open. Asian animals like tigers, pandas, elephants, and monkeys are shown on both sides of the game board. The “day” side has four separated sections and the “night” side has one big grid for more difficult challenges. Each challenge requires players to allow only a certain number of each animal to be revealed; this is accomplished using the 4 double-sided jungle tiles. These tiles have square openings in various spots, allowing animals to be seen underneath the cutouts. Rotate and place all four tiles until you find the combination that results in “seeking” the correct total of each creature! Includes 80 challenges; game board serves as storage case.

     Trout-nce your opponents in this simple word game! The game is composed of 10 wooden dice, a score pad, and a dice mat. One player rolls the dice and creates the highest scoring word they can. Letters are worth varying point values based on difficulty. The other player rolls the remaining dice and creates the best word they can (crossword style to the original word). Players take turns rolling the unused dice, and dice used in their previously played word, leaving only the last word on the mat, and making new words. Will you have the catch of the game? 2 players or teams; 10-20 minutes. ~ Megan

    I'd have played a lot more go fish as a kid if I could have used these! All of the cards have an attractive photo and a tidbit of information about the object in the photo. Cards are divided into the sections Gods, Goddesses, Symbols, Pharaohs, Mummies, and the Afterlife. Also included in the set is a fact book with slightly more detailed information, a hieroglyph alphabet, a basic geographical map, and game instructions.

    Disclaimer: You're going to have a hard time keeping these playing pieces in the box. They're almost guaranteed to run off to your children's play kitchen! Okay, now that we got that out of the way, Smart Cookies is a special edition of the Meta-Forms game by the same manufacturer. Instead of attribute-block-like shapes, the primary-colored shapes in this game are cookies, with textured, lightly browned, soft plastic edges. Along with the nine cookies, you get a 9-square grid, instructions, and a book of challenges. Each challenge tells the player where to place specific cookies on the grid, and they must use logic and the basic rules (not repeating a color or shape in any row) to place the other cookies. We are big fans of this edition; Smart Cookies is sure to jump off the shelf (for play or puzzling) more frequently than the original!

    It's anybody and everybody's game in Smallworld, from elves, to giants, to skeletons and more! Four different maps for 2, 3, 4, or 5 players are included, each larger than the last (but never big enough for everyone!) Mountains, Woods, Hills, Farmlands, Swamps, Lakes and Seas are spread across each board. To kick off the game, players select a combination from the shuffled column of Races/Special Powers. Each race has its own inherent abilities. Giants, for example, require one less token to conquer regions next to Mountains they own. Special Powers involve the ability to fly, colonize water, earn points for terrain, and more. Racial Abilities are combined with Powers to create a playable race. These could include Diplomatic Ghouls, Forest Dwarves, or even Commando Trolls. Once you've picked a race, you attempt to conquer regions which have the highest benefit for your Race/Power, earning Victory Coins at the end of each round. However, it costs troop tokens to invade regions, and before long you'll find your race stretched to its limit! Once you bring your race into dominance, don't be afraid to abandon it when a more advantageous group comes along… Your previous race becomes inactive, a new race is chosen, and you attempt to earn more Victory Coins with your new Race/Power. This cycle of conquering, earning coins, and sending races into decline continues until 8-10 turns (depending on the board) have passed, and the player with the most Victory Coins wins! Note: one race, the Amazons, may be slightly racy for some families. They wear a leaf bikini but are fairly cartoonish. Additionally, the box's tagline is, "…It's a world of Slaughter, after all!" but the game itself is not violent and does not indicate violence beyond taking over regions from other players. For 2-5 players. 40-80 minutes.
