Product: Go Fish for Ancient Egypt
I picked this game to review because my son loves the TV show Stargate SG-1 and I thought this would give me a chance to provide some background information to the show in question. It did that job.
Details on the product itself
Six areas are depicted
Each card lists the others in the series.
Each card also gives a bit of detail about the object depicted.
How we used it
My son's method of picking was to call out the number on the side.
For good readers we called out the category.
We didn't play with anyone old enough to call out the name of a particular card, which is how older students would play it.
My Son's Reaction
BUT he struggled with holding all the cards in his hands. He would often lay them out on a chair or the table and ask me not to look at them.
We've made up our own games as well (as my son loves to do that) and the cards have stood up well to the test of being used frequently.
We even managed to rope Dad into playing with us a couple of times and Dad agree that it was a good game. :)
And did you know that this game was the winner of the 2010 Parent's Choice Silver Award? That helps reinforce what a solid game that it really is. :)
