Review: Invasion of the Cow Snatchers

Invasion of the Cow SnatchersThinkFun sent us one of their latest games, Invasion of the Cow Snatchers. Opinions of the game are our own.

Strategy games are a lot of fun for me. I love that ThinkFun makes games where you can start off very simple and move to expert level in your strategic thinking. They have done it so many times with their games and each one has a unique and fun challenge. I’ve played a ton of them with roller coasters, lasers and more. Think time around we are using magnets to have an UFO fly around and pick up cows. The kids were tickled by this game. They found it to be very funny and challenging.

You have to be able to think in a few dimensions at once and I love that.

Today we played as a family (minus Eva, she was doing her own thing). But Andrew and Allison were interested in playing this game. There is much more to this game than merely stacking oddly shaped pieces. Each piece does something in the game and you quickly realize that you need to not only balance the physical items but also the world that you are creating in the app. Yes, this game is an augmented reality stacking game of dexterity, strategy and creation.
