I have a 7 year old and a 4 year old which makes game nights not always the most entertaining night for our family. My oldest become impatient with her younger sister and the youngest gets bored very quickly especially if she is losing (which is often) and dad and I get to be referees more than participants. Needless to say, we are always keeping our eye out for games that deal with less skill to benefit our youngest daughter and any game that lacks skill needs to give more in other areas such as FUN to keep my older daughter attention. Luckily, the adults have come comfortable with the terms "we do it for the kids not for us" and "grin and deal with it".
Honestly, when SimplyFun agreed to do a product review of their game Bee Alert, I just assumed it would be one more game to rotate in on game night with the same results. I was pretty excited to find this not to be the case! The purpose of the game is to either remember which hive the colored bee of choice is hiding or stop other players from winning the game by stealing their hives. The game lasts about 25 minutes but each player was anxious to play again. My husband and I had a great time for not winning one game! My youngest won both games we played the first night while my oldest became the new reigning champ the last time we played. I will knock them off their pedestal and reign victorious next time we play though!!
After playing this game I took a peak at even more fun games that they have on the SimplyFun Site and I can't wait to try some of the other ones! SimplyFun reminds us that through play we can connect with our children as well as teach our children! It's a great lesson to be learned and taught!
