Snack Attack! review and giveaway

Board Games provide a wonderful opportunity for kids and parents to engage in play time together. Yet finding a board game for young children that captivates their attention can be challenging. Enter Thinkfun, a company “committed to creating products that naturally inspire learning, spark creativity, and build problem solving through play.” I had the good fortune to visit Thinkfun and view their products at the NY Toy fair this past February. After I made an inquiry, they sent me Snack Attack!, a spin, match and stack multi-player game for kids 4 and up, to review. Read on for the review as well as how you can enter to win a copy of the game.

How do you play the game?

See below for a quick visual four step explanation provided by Thinkfun:

What’s the game play experience like?

I’d describe the game play as fun, educational, and quick-paced. The age range starts at 4 years of age which happens to be my son’s age. He immediately loved the tactile feel of the spinning platter as well as the ease to operate it. Also appreciated was the easily identifiable food stacking tokens and plates. Made of heavyweight cardboard, the game tokens and plates have a nice sturdy quality about them. The choice of snacks depicted on the coins and plates also provide an educational opportunity to differentiate between a variety of foods. The game can be played on a flat floor surface or on a table. The option to play on the floor can prove effective in eradicating any height issues a young child might experience playing at an adult sized table. Overall, with minimal adult supervision, a child can readily learn the rules of Snack Attack! and begin to play.

    Friday family game night will always be one of my enduring family memories – from when I was small and playing with my parents, to the tradition that we have made with our children!

    We love playing games as a family! It’s a great conversation time with the kids to discuss their day and anything that may be on their minds.

    Board games with the family is one of my most favorite things to do! They allow us to spend quality time together and work our brains at the same time. They encourage teamwork, planning, and just plain old fun! There’s not really anything better for families than board games.

  • wow cool! we’ve been playing board games since our kids my kids each turned 3 and now that they are 6 and 4 1/2 years old we play a lot of great games. they have fun and games teach them to share, take turns and think strategically (depending on the game). It’s also a fun time to spend with them (until one of them doesn’t like what the other did).
