I recently reviewed a very fun children's game from Peaceable Kingdom, titled," Dinosaur Escape." This game is one of Peaceable Kingdom's cooperative games. A cooperative game is a game where all players play together against a common obstacle, not against each other. In a cooperative game no one feels left out and everyone has fun! Peaceable Kingdom’s cooperative board games use familiar game mechanisms – spinning a spinner, matching cards, moving a token, figuring out how to win! The difference in their games is players play together instead of fighting to be the winner.
My grandson's love this game. We have to play it several times a day. The object of Dinosaur Escape is to get all three dinosaurs safely to Dinosaur Island before the volcano erupts! Children will move the dinosaur movers around the board and uncover the matching dinosaurs under the fern tokens.
On your turn, roll the die. If you roll a number, move any dinosaur mover the indicated number of spaces any direction on the path. Then turn over one fern token anywhere on the board. If you reveal rocks, bones or other items, flip the token back over. If you reveal a dinosaur, and the dinosaur mover of the same species is in the same habitat area, move the dinosaur moved and matching token to Dinosaur Island. You just helped a dinosaur escape!
If you reveal a dinosaur, but the dinosaur mover of the same species is not in the same habitat as the token, flip the token back over. Dinosaur movers and matching tokens must be in the same habitat to help a dinosaur escape! If you turn over the T-Rex, RUN! Move each of the dinosaur movers in play back to a start space. If you roll a volcano, place volcano piece number 1 in the stand on the board. If you can find and help all three lost dinosaurs escape to Dinosaur Island before completing the 3D volcano puzzle, you all win! This is what makes Peaceable Kingdom games so wonderful - everyone is a winner.
This board game is perfect for teaching children to count, take turns and recognize objects. There is no reading required and it is for ages 4+. 2-4 players can play and a game usually lasts about 20 minutes, not too long for little ones to get bored.
If you are looking for great games for your children that teach as well as let them have fun, then you really need to check out all the games Peaceable Kingdom has to offer. I know you will like what you see.
