We love playing games as a family. We like all sorts of games and we love to mix up our game nights. Last week we played two new games from Blue Orange Games, Fast Flip and Dr Eureka. We enjoyed playing both games but we all agreed on one being our favorite. You’ll have to keep reading to find out which one. First I want to remind you that the games were tested by adults, myself, my husband, Ron and our 20 yr old son, Jordan. These games are for ages 7/8 to adult.
Fast Flip from Blue Orange Games
Fast Flip is the latest speed matching game from Blue Orange. This game is both simple and complex at the same time. Players race to count a specific fruit or number of fruits on the card in play. The game play is simple but works on high level visual processing skills as you quickly count the fruit on the card. Jordan and I played this game and we had a lot of fun! It is tricky because we often answered at the exact same time. There are two modes of play, with or without the tokens. We liked playing without the tokens best. This game reminded us of our very first Blue Orange game, Spot It! Fast Flip is another great game to travel with, the metal tin it comes in is small and you don’t need a lot of space to play in. My copy of the game will be joining Spot It! in my Wednesday night church bag. They are games we can play at the end of class when our lesson is done and we have a few minutes left before church is over. Fast Flip is available from Blue Orange Games for $12.99.
Dr Eureka from Blue Orange Games
I adore logic puzzles and Dr Eureka is a 3 dimensional logic puzzle game for ages 8-adult. Dr. Eureka, designed by the award winning Roberto Fraga, is a tactile problem solving and brain teasing matching game. Players pass colorful molecules between test tubes to match the pattern on a challenge card, building both cognitive processing and dexterity skills. Play it alone or at a party with friends, Dr. Eureka is your best bet for some crazy molecule juggling fun! This game was an instant family favorite. We can’t wait for our friends to come over so we can play with them. Again, the premise is simple but the execution is tougher. Dr Eureka is a nice addition to family game night and it really gets your brain working to solve the puzzles. Dr. Eureka is available for $19.99.
We have never been disappointed by a Blue Orange Games game. All of their games are high quality games that require multiple levels of thinking, quick reflexes and yet are always fun for families to play together. In case you missed them check out our reviews of Tell Tale Fairy Tales and Battle Sheep. They all would make a great addition to your next family game night.
