Three Blue Orange Games and Reviews

 Eye ‘N Seek
Ages 6 & Up | 2-6 Players
Spin to win! Flip a card and then rotate the wheel to find its matching icon in the windows. Hurry, it’s a race! Spot the match before your opponents to win the round and a point. With 6 double-sided wheels, 100 icons, 3 levels, and 6 games to play the searching fun is endless!

Cassandra's Review-  Easy set up, the rules are simple from the start and the game can go slow or fast depending on your skill level.  If you have a child with special needs this can be modified as a one person game.

 Kingdomino
Ages 8 & Up | 2-4 Players

Explore the lands and expand your kingdom! Each turn, connect a new domino to your existing
kingdom, making sure that at least one of its sides connects to a matching terrain type already in play. Build up your 5x5 grid as best you can, as the
player with the richest lands takes it all! Game of the year winner!

Cassandra's Review- We did not get to play this one fully, we tried, I read the directions and we failed, I looked it up online and watched the video that describes how to play and the kids got distracted and overwhelmed.  So what seems simple or like it is going to be a game for everyone, for my family it was not.  It was more of a headache unfortunately and we just could not get into it.  It was a little bit of a hype up stating game of the year, for me because I thought that it was on par with the other games by this brand, until I attempted to play it.   Also not everyone has access to the video when they are trying out the game.
Zero Down
Ages 8 & Up | 2-4 Players

Less is more in this subtle card game. Group the cards in your hand by number and color to try cancelling out their point values. Multiples of cards are scored as zero, so each number is only counted once. Trade cards while keeping a watchful eye on your opponents. Mind your strategy as you all reach for the goal of cancelling out your hand and achieving the ultimate combo: ZERO!

Cassandra's Review-  The is a deck of card type game meaning it is just a deck of cards.  You shuffle lay out and swap or knock.  It reminded me of a card game by in the older years of card playing with a spin on the SET game mingled in.   It is not easy to play, but it is fun when you get the hang of it and the kids can play as teams if they need to help each other or have a lower skill level.  Of course you can always create your own rules or modify for your child.
