Review: Eco-Friendly Games by Blue Orange Games

Blue Orange games is a company that has been designing high quality eco-friendly games for 10 years. They follow a plan to plant two trees for every tree used in production of their products and have won 50 industry awards in the past 5 years.  In addition, they won the first ever prestigious "Green Toy Company Award.  For more information on these awards, click here.

I had the opportunity to play their popular game, Spot it! The game is designed for players ages 7 to adult and 2 to 8 players can play at one time, making it great for families and parties.  Th game comes with 55 cards containing 8 symbols each.  There is one, and only one, matching symbol between any two cards.  Spot it and you win the cards.  The player who wins the most mini-games is the champion.  There are actually 5 different ways you can play the game, but the goal is always the same--match the symbols.

The game comes in a nice round tin and the round cards are of nice quality.  The symbols are cute pictures that children and adult both enjoy.  Even though the game is rated for ages 7 and up, I think younger children can still play and have fun.  However, you will have to point out that some symbols, like the red balloons, come in three sizes, so they must look for the same size.  My five-year old had no problem with that and we all had fun playing.

I like that it it compact.  It is great to throw in a purse, beach bag or backpack and play on the go.  It is a great game that both kids and adults will have fun playing!  I can understand why it has won 12 best toy awards!

Sounds like fun, something my boys would enjoy playing and would be great to play on long car journeys too, thanks for sharing.
