Product Description

BLINK Card Game is the World’s Fastest Game. Created by Reinhard Staupe, Blink is the lightning-fast game where two players race to be the first to play all of their cards. How fast can you match? That’s the key to winning. Fast and portable, BLINK is great fun for everyone.

4 Cards

Blink is the lightning-fast game where two players race to be the first to play all of their cards.
How-to-play

Using sharp eyes and fast hands, players quickly try to match the shape, count or color on the cards.
How Fast Can You Match?
Developed by German game designer Reinhard Staupe, BLINK is an addictive game of fast matching and sharp observation. Quick reflexes and even quicker response time are the keys for winning. Great for all ages, BLINK can help improve hand and eye coordination. Players must quickly try to match the shape, color, or number of symbols on their cards to two discard piles. Colorfully designed cards have large symbols, making it easy for anyone to play.

How To Get Started
Open the box, shuffle the cards and create two equal draw piles. Place one draw pile in front of each player, take the top card and place it face down between the players – make sure that these cards are accessible to both players. Each player then takes the three top cards from their draw pile and looks at them; now you’re ready to go! The game starts when the two cards placed face down between players are simultaneously flipped over.

How To Win
Players race to play cards from their hand on either of the piles without taking turns. In order for a card to be played it must match at least one of the characteristics, color, shape, or count, of the card on which it is being played. For instance a card with four yellow stars could be played on any card with yellow (color), or on a card with stars (shape), or on a card with four symbols (count). Be the first to play all the cards from your draw pile to win!

What's In The Box?
60 symbol cards and instructions for regular and quick play.

This is a great family game for a variety of ages.

A great way for kids to think quickly on their feet and use their brains and eye to visually discriminate between colors, shapes and numbers of objects.

3 Reasons why Blink is a great game to play with your kids:
Simple Rules - the box says ages 7 & up, but a bright 3-year-old can learn it in a few rounds (ours did).
Easy to Handicap - It's a "get rid of your cards first" kind of game and I'm much faster than my 3-year-old, so I simply deal myself 3 times as many cards as I deal her. That way it's still a fun and challenging game for both of us.
Unlike most card games, this one plays just as well if you're missing a few cards - VERY important for a family card game.
The only downsides I have found are that it's really just a 2 or 3 person game. You'll have to get multiple decks and play "tournaments" if you have a large family. And I have more trouble shuffling these cards than most other cards - probably something about the coating on them.

I originally purchased this card game for a good traveling game for a friends 7 year old daughter for Christmas. We gave the gift to her early since they were going to be away for Christmas this year! She asked us if we can play her new blink game with her and it was a fun game to play! It is so easy and the directions are very easy for anyone to understand and you can start playing before you know it! This is good for all ages trying to match colors, shapes and numbers and do it quickly!
This seven year old girl was very excited over this game and the game was short and fun which makes you want to keep playing over and over again. The only draw back I see with this game is that it only accomodates enough cards to play up to 4 people at a time. It would be even more fun if you could have up to 6 people playing this game and make it more challenging to watch more cards being played on the middle pile with the changes of colors, shapes and numbers which you have to match in order to lay the card to get it out of your hand. The person with the no cards in their hands first is the winner and can say Blink! This is a good game for families and easy to play with the younger members and the adults don't get bored with too easy of a game, as well a very good traveling game for anyone!

Pros:1) Kids can play even with adults. I know my daughter (who is 6) likes it a lot because it she's good at it and can beat kids and adults handily; 2) It's not expensive; 3) It comes in a nice can, with nice cards and is not cheap-looking like so many games; 4) You can lose cards and still play.

Cons: 1) the person who has played more has a huge advantage. My daughter's friends are nice enough to play a few times but they always lose to her because they don't have the game and she's good at it. Against my husband and brother (both with advanced degrees) my 6 year old beats them so easily they can't believe she's not cheating. (A quick check of the cards after shows she wasn't). However, she has played more. They could get up to speed if they were interested in playing more but they're not because the game isn't interesting. 2) The game is too repetitive. After you've got the hang of it (and you can get the hang of it in just a few games if you're that kind of person), it is just more of the same over and over. You're not learning anything: the fun is just in winning, not in playing. 3) The game is TOO SHORT. If you have the hang of it you will fly though the cards so fast the game will take less than minute. 4) This is not an interactive or social game because you have 100% of your attention on the cards. You can't make conversation, compliment people on nice moves, laugh or even (if you're trying to win) blink.

I thought this game would be like the good old card games from childhood, Speed or Spit (you can find the rules on the Web if you don't know them). But those games are actually way more fun to play! Check them out!

I love Blink! My friends and I play all the time! You have to match cards with shape, color, or number. You try to get rid of all of your cards before the other person. It is the fastest game in the world! I would definetly reccomend this game to kids 7 and up, but adults will love this game too! This game is loads of fun and even educational!

Verified Purchase
Our daughters got this card game for Christmas and we're all (the whole family) still playing it regularly. This game is for kids and adults too! It is so much fun! It really challenges the players to think fast, which is a great "brain workout" for kids. We can't get enough of it. It's definitely a game for the competitive person! The only thing that I have suggested to the company that they do differently is to make the cards more durable. I was informed that they are already in the middle of researching how to accomplish that. Even if I have to pay for another set of Blink cards (if we get to the point of having used them so much they're trashed), I would definitely do it! Again and again! It's a card game that I can see playing for years and years. I'm sold - we're crazy about it! What else can I say! I need to be a Blink sales person. They should be paying me for this review! If you buy it, hope you enjoy it as much as our family has!

I bought this game for my fourth grade class and they love it! The rules are simple, a variety of ages can play and you can take it anywhere. Adults will find a game they can enjoy as much as the kids.
