Squirrely Good Fun
Ninja Squirrels is reminiscent of another game or a few from our childhood days. Games like Slap Jack, and possibly WAR, you will start to feel like you have played this before. But don’t let that fool you; just because it feels familiar does not mean that you will win!
Included in Ninja Squirrels
Inside the beautiful box (yes I just told you that a box is beautiful. But seriously look at it!) are 4 parts to a battle ring. Also, you will find a ton of cards printed in a lovely matte and about 20 brightly colored plastic acorns. And 4 character cards.
Fast playing, Acorn Slapping Fun!
You have to be quick to win. I mean really quick! I was not feeling well the first time we played and I could not keep up. I do have a few tips to help make gameplay a little smoother:
- Be ok with yelling. Ninja Squirrels makes kids loud. You have to be ok with that or you won’t love this game as much as we do
- Know the age range. Playing with children younger than 7 is going to be challenging. Matthew just turned 6 and the hand-eye coordination is just not there yet. But he did keep trying! (Always turn that into a learning moment!)
- Give your self some room. Ninjas need room ma, so make sure there is plenty of room to be had and nothing will get broken.
Players, Are You Ready?
To play this fun game, you deal all the cards face down to each player. Then a different color acorn should be placed in the corresponding Ninja’s den hole on the ring. The goal is to create a match when the cards are quickly tossed into the center of the ring. When a match is made, the first one to swipe the nut gets to keep it. After the first one has been taken, ANY color may be replaced until they are gone. The player with the most at the end of gameplay wins.
In case you didn’t understand my mom jargon, here is a video that RoosterFin has put together for you!
If I Could Turn Back Time
Mmm, you just sang that, didn’t you? I sang typed it. Seriously though, if I could do it all over again, I would. I would buy up all the RoosterFin games for my kids I could get my hands on. Joe is an amazing game creator, and really gets kids. My own children love each game they have played from RoosterFin and constantly ask for more.
When your kids are playing, they are also developing the necessary skills like hand-eye coordination and brain building memory. Joe has made it seem like you’re only playing a game, hiding the fact that you are actually getting something from his games. I am proud to have RoosterFin games like Ninja Squirrels in my game closet.
As always, until next time,
