Did you do anything for Sibling Day a little while back? I totally missed it, but I love that there is a day we’re celebrating those neat relationships! Some of my best memories and unifying moments with my siblings are of us playing games into the late night. We’d sneak into each others rooms and play card games til the sun came up.
Winning Moves Games has a fantastic new card game, called Touring, that I’m excited to show you!
Touring is a card game (mini cars not included) where you race with the other players to collect the speed cards you need to reach so many miles and win. There are cards that can be played on you that will inhibit your speed or keep you from moving at all, like the “Flat Tire” card, or the “Burning Oil” card, and you will need to obtain certain cards to get going again.
We pulled out this game when my in-laws were in town, and we had a great time! I think the men were especially keen on the idea of a game that incorporates cars and speed. I like that this game can be played with 2, 3, or 4 players. When I first pulled it out, my husband was excited that he already knew this game. He used to play this all the time as a kid, and he was excited to see it in a updated form. Apparently, the original Touring game was released in 1906, and this is the same game, but with updated cards and designs.
The game moves fast enough that it entertains adults, while still allowing you to engage in a conversation (which is MY preference, when it comes to games!). The cards are thick and slick, and the coordinating pictures make this easy for a younger child to understand and play along. What a fun game!
Now here’s a really fun product for the kids: Splash Cards!
We really like these Splashimals, with fronts and rumps of a variety of animals. Both of my toddlers were able to recognize all the animal parts, and I like that there are printed words above, so that Rocket can practice identifying these words and enjoy making new combinations. There are 30 cards in all, which make 15 different animals.
Included in the variety of Splash Cards are these two sets of playing cards–one with the traditional four suits, and another with colored sea animals. Wouldn’t these be fun at a pool party? Our favorite set is the one below, “Splash Pals”. As you can see, there are tops, middles, and bottoms, of all sorts of people. You can make it as simple as putting up your own creation, or you can follow a set of rules to a game where you use the numbers in the corners to create the highest scoring combination. Super cute, right?!
Enter below to win either the Touring Card Game AND a few sets of SplashCards!
