We are a pretty digital family. We love our video games and our iPads but we are also fans of playing actual physical board games and card games as well. We recently received free copies of two new games from Ok2win called BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITETM and 3UP 3DOWN®. Opinions of these games are our own.
Andrew is the one who really likes card games. I taught him how to play BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITETM first and he took to it right away. This is a quick and easy game to learn. The Ok2win website boasts that the games can be learned in 3 minutes and that is an accurate claim. Both games have simple rules but require strategy to win. These are strategies that kids pick up on easily, too.
I’m always impressed at how well Andrew grasps math concepts. He can do a lot of it right in his head without a lot of time so he can act quickly while playing each game. He’s 7 and picked up both games immediately. Even though he is skilled at math it is always good to play games that help enhance his learning in fun and enjoyable ways.
The games are a great way to get the kids interacting with us in fun ways. We tend to get laughing when we play games like these and they are quick so we can play a few and they involve luck and strategy so there is always a potential for the kids to win at any point. Makes for far less hard feelings or getting upset when mom and dad don’t dominate the games every time.
Below you can purchase the games through our Amazon.com affiliate links and to learn more about the games take a look at the press release below.
