As you may have heard, I am recovering from a wonderful week at the beach. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things, and that means blogging responsibilities too. Good thing I got this awesome game to review! It's called Shell Game and it's got sand (pictures), crabs, and shells! What a perfect way to ease back into the real world!!
Shell Game is a fun game to test your memory and improve your reasoning skills. Much like the game played on the streets of New York, in this game you've got to remember where an object is and track its movement. That's where the similarities end, though. No one will trick you out of your money in this game!
The object is to set up the crabs and shells in the way indicated on the top of the game board and then move them to the new locations shown at the bottom. There are various lines drawn to indicate which paths the shells can travel.
It's fairly simple to set up and get started, but it's not an easy game to master! There are four levels of play: beginner, intermediate, advanced, and expert. The play gets harder as you work your way through the book.
I started with the first beginner challenge and finished it quite easily, but after that I got a little stuck. Actually, I got embarassingly stuck! (And I had to cheat!!) But I went back and started over and was able to figure out the pattern.
I really enjoyed playing this game and if you enjoy memory and logic puzzles, I bet you will too. And by the way, Henry wants me to point out that he can play this game just fine, thank you very much.
You can find Shell Game at the Think Fun website.I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
