Peaceable Kingdom Hoppin' to the Show
(Peaceable Kingdom $17.95)
In this cooperative game, players race against the game to win tickets to the Magic Show before all the Magician's props are on the stage. Spin the spinner and draw a card that will tell you to put a prop on the stage or to hop ahead or If you're lucky—to draw a ticket card and put it on a seat! Four seats have to be filled before the magician has all the props. It's matching, taking turns, simple counting, and there's even a hat trick. Most of all it's about the fun of playing together as a team not against each other. Marked for 4 and up...we'd say the ideas here would better with fives and sixes.
