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.
