Spot It! an addictive matching card game

Finding games that my 6 year old daughter and I both find entertaining can be kinda hard. Spot It! is a matching card game that we can both play for hours! It is addictive!

The game is simple: match objects printed on small round cards. There is always one and only one match between any two cards in the deck. Whoever spots a match between their card and the community card wins the round and takes the community card. You simply play through the deck and see who has more cards at the end. Easy to learn, and for me completely dependent on state of mind as to which one of us will be the victor.

Spot It! requires quick skills of observation and elimination. I think these are handy skills for my kid to learn and the game is certainly a fun way for us to spend time together.

    Been playing this with my kids for years. It's a lot of fun and it's relatively fair play, too. My 3 y/o keeps up with my 9 y/o and me without us giving her any extra peeks at the cards or other handicaps.

    Bonus: the small tin it comes in is free of the thousands of packaging wires and ties that come standard with nearly every other toy.

  3. My family has been enjoying this game for a couple years now. It's cool. I probably don't have the skills to fully understand them but I think the maths behind the concept must be fun to work through.

  4. Fantastic for all ages, and in a really small package. Would play it while waiting in line for events at PAX every year. People invariably would see how much fun we were having and hop in.

    Just fantastic.

  5. My kids love it, and we have great fun playing together, it's just a little beyond my 4 year old, but it's a game were letting him play (his style) works too. Very highly recommended, especially since you only need to match symbols, and understand the rules you are playing with.
