I just recently posted a review I did for a board game called Hoot Owl Hoot! from Peaceable Kingdom and I am happy to share my second review with them, provided in exchange for my honest opinion, for their game Stack Up!.
I got Stack Up! for a Christmas present for my almost 4 year old. So when I got it and opened it up I played it with my husband. Of course a game for young children was pretty easy for two grown adults to play but it was fun to see the different levels of difficulty and to see that the hardest level of difficulty was even a little too hard for us at first.
Included in Stack Up! is the board, instructions, 12 blocks, a spinner, 12 game cards, 2 stack sticks and one stack smasher. The objective of the game is to stack all of the blocks before the stack smasher reaches the middle and smashes your stack. You also loose if at any time your stack gets knocked over.
Like Hoot Owl Hoot!, Stack Up! is another cooperative played game so everyone either wins or looses. This helps teach children how to play as a team instead of playing against one another.
I love how there are three difficulty levels so as your children grow the game will grow with them.
I know this would be a great gift for preschool aged children, especially those who love a challenge. Who do you know that would love Stack Up! for a Christmas present this year?
