Fun to play with my 4 year old
By Robert A. Suarez
Very simple game, but definitely fun. It says ages 7 and up, but I'd say any child who can associate a picture with a word can handle it, but it being NHL obviously adds to that difficulty curve.
We have this and the original one (which is easier), but she still fairs by just making up her own words for the pictures on her card (e.g. Minnesota Wild is simply "bear").
Also, when I do play with her, I started by giving her a 3 second handicap per card before I would look at it too. That quickly dwindled to 2 seconds, and even then she was still keeping up.
Age requirement aside, it's a fun and kind of frantic game (think slapjack) that has many different very easy to pick up ways to play.
There are about 50 circle shaped cards each with an assortment of images on them. Any two cards will always have 1 matching image. Each player draws a starting card from the deck and they are to memorize the images on it. A dealer will place a card face up and you have to find the image on it that matches your card (hence "Spot it!"), the first to do so wins that card and the game continues with no stopping or turns. This can create a bit of riff raff on who touched the card first, so always have an appointed judge. As the game progresses you memorize them better and it gets increasingly competitive. The other methods of play keep the game fun and interesting.

Fun, Fast Game!
This is a great game for your hockey lover. A quick diversion when he or she says "I'm bored!"....you can play the game and still have time to make dinner, clean the bathroom, or any of those
other wonderful chores that seem to never end! Easy to learn and quick to play.

I love these Spot it! games. I am a grandmother of five and the ages range from 4 to 12. I like having games at the house that are not electronic. I like to show the grandchildren that you can have fun while interacting with each other instead of a computer. Plus it is nice to find games that appeal to different age ranges.
My grandson and I had tons of fun playing this quick pace game. Initially it is not easy to spot the match; but as you play your mind realizes the match may be small or large. That fact makes the game more challenging therefore the 10 year old enjoyed playing.
I like the Spot it! games as they take up so little space. I can keep a stack of these on hand in a drawer in the family room for a quick game with the grandkids.
I would recommend this game for parents and grandparents.
