Swish: Flip, Rotate, & Stack Game by Thinkfun {Review}


Description:

Ages: 8 and up

Swish is a spatial card game that challenges you to be the first to make matches, or “Swishes.” Swishes are made by layering as few as two or as many as 12 cards so that every ball swishes into a hoop of the same color. The cards must be placed on top of each other in the same orientation, and no ball or hoop can be left unmatched. The player with the most matches at the end of the game wins. Various levels of play make this card game addictively fun for all! Swish is a spatial card game that challenges you to be the first to make matches, or “Swishes.”

* 60 clear SWISH! Cards
* Game-Go Bag
* Instructions

My Thoughts:

Swish is an extremely unique and interesting addition to the ThinkFun line. The fun "see-through" cards are really exciting for kids and adults alike. Even the box that Swish comes in, shouts of the creative game adventure inside. Of course, it has a convenient bag to store the cards in just like all the ThinkFun games. 

When the game arrived, my kids begged me to open it and get started. They quickly figured out the rules and began to play. It has been pulled out many times since because "it is fast, fun, and cool" (quote from my oldest). This Mama likes it because the children can easily play it on their own, they enjoy it, and it helps with critical thinking skills.  I have even heard them talk of playing their own version by modifying the rules which is also a big plus in our household.

ThinkFun, keep making creative learning games!

This game was given to me in exchange for my honest review.
