I love board and card games. They were how my family spent time together when I was younger and now that my daughter is finally getting to the age of being able to play them with me I am ecstatic. This new way for my daughter and myself to connect is one I am looking forward to and a way I know we will make a lot of memories and spend a lot of time doing together. To start my child game collection I went with Hoot Owl Hoot! from Peaceable Kingdom , which I got in exchange for my honest opinion of the game. I am excited that this is the first game that I will be getting and playing with my daughter because along with it being fun it is also a game that will teach my daughter a lot.
Hoot Owl Hoot! is a cooperative game so everyone who plays will be working together to win the game. This also means that either everyone wins or everyone loses.
Hoot Owl Hoot! is for 2-4 players ages 4 and up and takes about 15 minutes to play, more time for younger kids or less for older kids/adults. There are also multiple levels of play so if you beat the game at the easiest level you can try with a harder level and so on.
The objection of Hoot Owl Hoot! is to get your owls, this can be either 3, 4, 5 or 6 owls depending on the difficulty level you choose, to the nest before the sun comes up. During the game all players will have 3 cards in front of them, these can be either cards with a colored circle or a sun. During the player’s turn they will play one of their cards to hopefully get the owl closer to the nest but if they have any sun cards they are forced to play that one and move the sun one spot closer to sunrise and they draw a new card and wait for their next turn to hopefully play a colored card.
The thing I love most about Hoot Owl Hoot is that it is a strategy game for young children and strategy games are my husband and my favorite kind of games to play together and with friends and now our daughter will get the chance to see if she likes these as well. I can’t wait to play this game with my daughter Christmas morning!
Would your child(ren) love Hoot Owl Hoot!? Who do you know that would love to receive Hoot Owl Hoot! for Christmas?
