I’ve been on camping and hiking trips with my Aunt and Uncle where we pass the time at night playing card and dice games. We have often learned about fun new games from them and in the case of Array, it is our chance to return the favor and introduce family and friends to this fun card game.
Array is pretty easy to pick up and learn, despite it being rated for 8 years old and up Eva was able to pick up the game and play with us. She really enjoyed it the first time we played and has asked us to play a few times since. We brought the game with us to Thanksgiving dinner and played a few rounds with my Mom. Eva explained game play to her as we played.
Game play is pretty simple. You start with one array card in the middle of the table. Players can “splice” their cards onto the original card and then splice more cards onto the card that they play. Players can also “slice” the array if they have two cards with the same colors as the parts of the cards they slice apart. Then they can build on that. Players can also Slam and splat each other which gives other players more cards or more points. The object of the game is to be the last player to attain 100 points. Each round is fast and if you plan ahead and remain observant you can do very well in this game.
You can find more games from Funnybone toys at their website http://www.funnybonetoys.com
Array is also an award winning game including a Parents’ Choice Foundation Approved Award • Fall 2012 Games Category.
About the Give it Forward Project on BenSpark.com
For the past three years we have saved money to go on a family shopping trip so that we could make donations to Christmas is for Kids. Each year we try to save more and do things bigger. This year many companies that I’ve done reviews with have provided me with toys to review but also toys to give away as well. On December 1, 2012 from 10:00am – 2:00pm Achin’s Garage is sponsoring a Toy Drive of NEW unwrapped toys for kids aged newborn to 18 years old at Attleboro Farms to collect toys for Christmas is for Kids. We’ll be making a huge donation thanks to so many great sponsors.
Disclosure: I was provided with two copies of Array from Funnybone Toys. One to review and one to donate. Opinions about the toy are 100% my own.
