Excellent first strategy game
on January 9, 2012
When your child has outgrown Candyland and Chutes and Ladders and is ready to move on to more involved, strategic games, Blokus Junior is an excellent stepping stone for the 5 - 8 yr old age group. The more the child plays the game, the more they begin to see the benefits of planning ahead, watching their opponent's moves, etc. What looks like an easy, basic game can really become quite involved - yet still says simple enough to hold the 5 yr old's attention. Accompanying the two person game are cards that allow the child to play on his own as well, and which really take some good solid thinking to solve. I highly recommend this game for the 5 to 8 yr old group.
