Recently I was introduced to a company called Hoyle. Hoyle is a brand that was first established by Englishman Edmond Hoyle 1672-1769, Hoyle playing cards have set the standard for quality and trust. Today, Hoyle is dedicated to creating card games that kids and adults love. He also wanted families learning lessons and making memories together.
We received five games for review. My kids were very excited they came in fun card boxes and they where ready to play.
The first game is one of my favorites it is called Sharks Are Wild. What I also like about this game that it was easy for my daughter to pick up and understand. The goal of this game is to be the first player to collect five gold coins. How to win a gold coin is that you need to create a sequence in your had of five numbered cards. For example 2,3,4,5,6 if you get a shark card that is wild and you can replace one number in your sequence that you need to be able to complete your sequence. I like the simple game but there is a level two that you can learn after you learn level one, to make it a little more of a challenge for you.
The second game that we received was their Piggy Bank. This game I like because it is education and that it will help children with basic math skills. This game helps kids 4-6 learn how to add and subtract by fives and tens. The goal of the game is try to force another player to break the bank by putting too many coins inside the bank. This game is recommend for 2-4 players and each game starts by drawing a piggy bank card that sets the limit of coins the bank will hold for that hand. You will be dealt five cards and you need to try to come with that amount and not break the bank there are some special cards like pig out and oink oink cards. This game is a lot of fun.
The next game that we played was their Catch N'Fish. This game is recommend for kids ages 4-6 and they get to become stars. This game is recommend for
2-4 players and it a easy game to play that makes adding and subtracting fun. The dealer passes out seven cards to each player and the game begins when the first player spins the wheel. When the person spins the wheel and it lands on a number if you have those cards in your hand for example you land on a five. You have a 7 and a 2 you have a catch. Or you have 2 and a 3 you have a catch. There are times where you can make several catches in a single spin. The first player to make five catches is the winner. This game is a lot of fun.
The next game that we received was their Monkey May I. This is a very cute game that reminds me of Simon Says. This game is for 2-4 players and is recommended for kids ages 4-6. This game is easy to set up and play and includes elements of the kid favorite simon says. This game helps reinforce your children's social skills like making good choices, self awareness and self control with entertaining and fast actions game. Monkey May I is a fun game for younger children you will flip over an action card and make good choices and collect Monkey Money. The player with the most Monkey Money at the end of the game is the winner.
The last game that we received was Super Me. If your child loves super heroes than this game is for them. This game is recommend for ages 4-6 years old and recommend to 2-4 players. This game is based on your child's emotional intelligence and includes element of kid favorites like Memory and Matching! With easy set up and taking turns matching the situation to the emergency, you can reinforce social skills like making good choices, helping other and having empathy. What you do is flip over and emergency card and make a super me. Match a superhero. This game is a lot of fun and your kiddos will love it.
Overall I would definitely recommend Hoyle Card Game for stocking stuffers this year for your children. Not only that these game are a lot of fun they are also educational. I like how they are fun and your child will not even notice that they are learning in the process of playing the game. They are reasonable priced and would make a great gift for the upcoming holiday.
