As my kids have gotten older they have come to really enjoy card games and board games. To my hearts content I appreciate their love for simpler games and the detachment from technology. We have just about every traditional board and card game imaginable so family game night can become a bit mundane. Like our food, we like variety!
Wanting to keep my kids on their toes and their minds engaged we look for games that use critical thinking skills, creative thinking and of course are just plain fun. Blue Orange has a variety of games to that effect and one that we truly enjoyed was the game Ring It! Imagine the concept of Uno with colors and numbers and the buzzer ringing of Family Feud melded into one.
Clap and ring your way to victory! Players continuously flip their cards until a combo is found. Be the first to find the combo, clap your hands and ring the bell. Hesitation may cost you 1st place, but if you act too quickly you may make a mistake and face a penalty! Get ready for chaotic clapping followed by lots of laughter!
Did I mention this game requires a bit of coordination as well? Flip your card, if you see the match, clap and then ring the bell. Yeah, my family was too eager to ring the bell and half the time we forgot to clap. The kids were awesome about changing up the rules with matching more than just the numbers or the colors. The game even suggests changing up the rules a bit to make it interesting…and my kids being that they have an entrepreneurial spirit they were all about changing up the rules and playbook.
Now keeping them leashed so they didn’t totally hijack the game was a whole different ball game.
