We take the game Spot It! everywhere. To ballet practice, long road trips, to restaurants, . . . it’s the best travel game for kids. It’s small, fun, and has many options for play.
Kids ages five and up practice their powers of observation playing Spot It! Spot the match and you’re on your way to winning the game.
What’s great is there’s five different games you can play with Spot It! And you can have from 2 to 8 players. Versatility!
Generally we play the game where each player starts with one card and the rest is in the middle pile with one flipped over. When players spot a match, they can take that top card for their own stash. The player with the most cards at the end wins.
Reverse the game and deal out all the cards instead. Now the first player out of cards wins.
My kids (ages 7 and 10) LOVE Spot It! So do many others – it’s won tons of awards: 2010 Toy of the Year Nominee, Parents’ Choice Foundation Gold Award, ASTRA Best Toy for Kids Gold Award, NAPPA Gold Award, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Best Toy Award Gold Seal, Dr. Toy 10 Best Games, Best Vacation Children’s Product, Major Fun Award, Canadian Toy Testing Council Children’s Choice Award, National Parenting Center Seal of Approval.
