A colourful and addictive card game that is perfect for the Christmas holidays. Ideally played with 2-6 players aged 7+.
Players start with three cards in their hands to play, the rest of their cards being a personal deck. On each card is written a colour, which can be written in several different colours. One by one, players will put a card on the table, but be careful, the card must match with the card on the top of the game by colour or by word. At the end of their turn, the player draws a card from their personal deck, so they always have three cards in their hand. If you cannot play a card, draw one and pass your turn.
A great game for encouraging cognitive memory skills whilst kids aren’t in school, to win get rid of all your cards first by matching your cards to the colour or word card in the centre but be warned! It isn’t as simple as it sounds when ‘orange’ is written in green…
Our verdict: This game is so cool! It’s really quick to pick up and has the perfect level of competition.
