Great Family Game
Reviewed in the United States on January 9, 2017
In an effort to spend more family time together, we got a number of board games for Christmas and this was one of them. I just played it for the first time tonight with my 3 3/4-year-old . I'd gotten it due to the good reviews and her love of owls. It could have featured banana slugs and we still would have loved it. The basic gameplay is simple enough for my youngest to be able to actively participate, but engaging enough that I honestly had fun playing it several times in a row.
I was skeptical about how much fun my competitive little girl would have with a cooperative game play dynamic, but she really had a blast. We discussed strategy and the best way to get the owls home. It was simple enough for her to understand it easily, but I'm also sure that my 8yo will have a blast with it. I'll take this ahead of Candyland any day of the week.
Since my daughter's favorite Avenger is the Hulk for a reason, some of the big things I look for in games are 1) How easily destroyed are the pieces and 2) How easy will it be for me to try to make my own replacements when she does inevitably destroy things. Not only are the board, the card and the tokens made of sturdy stock, there's a note on the inside of the box about contacting the company for free replacement parts if anything gets lost or broken.
