Product Description

Product Description

The POOF-Slinky 0X3823 Ideal Instructures Game is a fast paced, highly interactive race to build wooden block structures against the clock. Instructures is a challenging and competitive game for a variety of ages and skill levels. (2) teams race to build the structure as shown on cards (the blueprints) by only using verbal instructions from another team member (the foreman). The team that correctly completes the structure wins the round and comes closer to winning the game. The game starts by dividing players into (2) construction crews where you pick a Blueprint Manager for the entire game. Each crew will pick a Foreman for each round that looks at the team’s Blueprint and begins instructing their crew. When the structure is complete the Foreman shouts “done!” and all construction stops. To determine if you pass or fail, the other crew now performs a building inspection. If you pass, roll the die and move your pawn forward. If you fail, roll the die and move your pawn backward. If the pawn lands on a special space, play the next round in that special way (Silent Challenge, Blind Challenge, Memory Challenge and Clock Challenge). The crew that reaches the ”Done!” space first wins. It's a game of see it, say it, build it that will provide hours of entertainment for the whole family. Mensa Select, the High IQ Society, honored this game of Construction by Instruction for excellence as a national competition winner. Ideal's Instructures is designed for 4+ players, measures 9.5-inches by 2.5-inches by 5.75-inches in size and includes (38) wood blocks, (72) sets of blueprints, a game board, 60-second timer, die and instructions. The POOF-Slinky 0X3823 Ideal Instructures Wooden Block Construction Game is recommended for children 4-years of age and older.

It looked interesting and something other than the regular type of games for children. It was VERY well made and had easy to follow instructions - however, it was NOT easy, it was a challenge and a fun one! It utilizes reading, LISTENING and following directions explicitly. There are various levels of play and my 5 year old grandson, his 8 year old sister, their parents and we, the grandparents, thoroughly enjoyed times of "playing". My evaluation is that it is a wonderful tool of fun while learning a valuable lesson on listening and following directions. I have recommended it to other "grandparents" looking for gifts for grandchildren as well as parents looking for something other than brainless toys. . .and it is not electronic! My daughter, an educator, feels it would be a valuable tool to use in the classroom.

This game is so incredibly fun!!! We play it at parties, with college kids and with our young kids. Great entertainment value! But Amazon has the name spelled wrong. It is correctly spelled InStructures!

This is a great game which encourages players to think about what they are trying to say with out help of hand motions, etc. For the younger ones it is challenging to be sure. For the older ones I was amazed how quickly they caught on and improved with each game session.

Loved it so much I bought a second set so that 4 couples could play. The wood is raw pine so I was able to stain each set a different color to help keep them separate. Great communication game!!

Great game! Only wish they had supplemental card sets you could buy for additional designs. We have just about learned them all by now.

I originally bought this game about 5 years ago and it was a great game, with clean wooden pieces and a general sense of quality materials. What a difference a few years makes...I bought the game again and what a disappointment. Not only can you tell by the printing quality throughout the packaging that "corners were cut", the smell of chemicals on all of the cards and wooden pieces is so overwhelming, I wouldn't let my kids near them, one of the caps on the sand timer was broken off and loose in the box, everything had a coating of dust on it, and the wooden pieces look second rate and kind of battered. Thanks China for ruining another great product. Sad.
