Which, occasionally is a little over the top. On the other hand, why not learn a new skill? What’s wrong with a challenge…where you use your brains?
Anyway, that’s what I was thinking when I asked to review one of Timberdoodle’s educational games.
When we received Knot So Fast….I got a bit more than I bargained for! I thought the game was seriously hard. My boys didn’t have as tough a time with it, but they agreed that some of the cards were challenging.
Personally, I think this is a great game to play with family. The cards do vary in difficulty, so little ones can enjoy as well. In all, there are 40 challenges, with levels from Beginner to Expert. Although we only played two at a time, you can play with up to four people.
The Game Includes a:
- Tug-o-war Scorekeeper
- 4 Ropes
- 4 Rings
- 30-second Timer
- 40 Challenge Cards
- Instruction Manual
- Select a Challenge Card from the deck.
- Race to tie the knot.
- The first to tie the knot scores a point.
- Track points on the Tug-o-war Scorekeeper.
- Pull the rope to your side to win!
My boys had a good time with it—of course, they had to go right to…expert level…
Now, just be sure that you don’t have one child who “maybe” studies all the knot cards and then asks his siblings to play…
The game does foster manual dexterity and spatial awareness…and, sometimes knots DO come in handy. And, then, they totally have it. How cool is that? I know who I want to move or go sailing with!!
