Game Review - Spot it! On the Road Travel Game
Remember how fun it was to play games on those long summer car trips? Chances are you broke up the monotony by checking out how many different states you could identify on license plates, and played “I Spy” or “Car Bingo.” Now kids have an awesome riff on these wonderful classics with Spot it! On the Road, a hot new card game from Blue Orange Games that’s sure to keep everyone entertained this summer.
Whether it’s a drive across town or a long trip to the cabin, Spot it! On the Road is a great alternative to video games and other gadgets, offering an easy and super-fun solution to backseat boredom.
Spot it! On the Road comes in a compact, travel-size tin consisting of 55 circular cards, each designed with eight different, but common “road” symbols— such as an airplane, mailbox, billboard, bridge, or fire hydrant. The rules are simple: place all the cards facedown in a pile. One card is turned over and all the players move quickly to find the roadside match. The first to spot the match wins the card, and when the cards run out, whoever has the most cards wins! Included are 5 different party games to keep everyone entertained.
“While there have always been car games, Spot it! On the Road is a fantastic take on the best of them all -- an instant classic.” says Julian Mayot, cofounder and CEO of Blue Orange Games, “Having a game the whole family can play together is a lot more fun than playing a video game by yourself”.
With a number of ways to play the game—all rooted in the same basic strategy, Spot it! On the road is fun for the entire family, a must have for everyone’s game closet. Spot it! develops visual recognition and matching skills, as well as requiring quick mental processing.
Spot it! On the Road can be played by 2 to 8 players, and though it’s designed for ages 7 and up, there is no reading involved. Priced at $12.99, Spot it! On the Road is part of the Blue Orange pocket collection and can be purchased online through Amazon, www.games.blueorangegames.com or in stores across the country that carry Blue Orange products.
My Take on the Game
My kids love the original Spot It Game, so they were excited when they heard of a few new Spot It Games that were now on the market. This Spot it, allows you to have a blast in the car with symbols that you may see along the way from destination to destination. The game is easy enough and encourages all to stay alert and encourages quick thinking. I love this game as a father because the game itself is interactive and engaging. I also love how easy this game is to transport, so no matter where you are going, this game simply slips into your bag for easy transport! My kids love it because they like to see if they are faster than their dad (sometimes they are). All-in-all this is a great addition to the Spot It! line of games!
