Ravensburger has this fun little matching-type game with a twist that the will keep children engaged start to finish. The fish have different colored retracting tails. You have to remember where the colors are to match them. There's something about a little fishing game like this that really appeals to the kiddos, and the twist here is the tails fold up accordion style into the fish bodies, while the tops all look the same. Players select a card and try to 'catch' the fish of that color. The one who gets the most fish by the end is the winner.
I have 4 kids, and 1 grandchild with another on the way). Each and every one of my children has enjoyed playing games, and this one here is right up my granddaughter's alley. I haven't shown it to her yet because it's getting close to the holiday, and I think I'll wrap it up for her instead. This will be a fun game for us to play on Christmas Day. I already know she's going to be giggling over those fish!
Flip a Lily Pad Card to see which fish to catch. Use a Fishing Rod to hook the fish you think will match. As you reel it toward you watch as your fish expands accordion-style to show its colors. If it's a match, you keep the catch! Pay close attention! The fish change positions. Can you remember which one's which? Catch the most fish to win!
You can purchase this game online or in retail stores everywhere, including Walmart. One lucky winner gets one to call their own! US entrants only.
