Easy to play and fun for the entire family, the Ravensburger Make 'N' Break game takes simple building tasks and sets them against the clock for an exciting and engaging showdown. Make 'N' Break's uncomplicated concept and variable levels of difficulty allow it to be enjoyed by builders of all ages, whether it's a rainy day inside with the kids or an after-dinner match for the adults. Combining spatial and logical skills, speed, and a little luck, Make 'N' Break is an exciting and stimulating game with excellent replay value.
Test Your Building Skills against the Clock
Make 'N' Break has a simple concept and easy-to-follow rules, making it easy to pick up and play right out of the box. First, roll the dice to see how much time to put on the timer, draw a game card, and arrange ten multicolored blocks to match the design on the card. Complete the designs on as many cards as you can until the timer runs out, then collect the number of tokens you've earned from your cards--three for difficult designs, two for moderate designs, and one for easy designs. After four rounds, the builder with the most tokens wins.
A Family Game That's Fun for Kids and Adults Alike
Because the game cards feature variable difficulty levels, Make 'N' Break can be enjoyed by everyone from children to adults. Although young children will probably be unable to arrange the blocks quickly to the timer, just practicing the arrangements on the cards will help reinforce their logical and spatial reasoning. These fundamental skills are not necessarily ones that adults are guaranteed to excel at above their children, making this an exciting family game where the kids and the adults can compete head to head.
Excellent Replay Value
For more experienced players, Make 'N' Break becomes a race against time and requires dexterous fingers and quick reactions. Luck also becomes a factor, with the dice roll determining how much time you receive on the timer to complete your arrangements. Our testers found the replay value of this game to be great--chances are you won't tire of the game after multiple plays, but will continue to get better at it, resulting in fiercer competitions. There is also an alternate set of rules for "expert builders," making the game even more intense.
What's in the Box
One timer, 10 building blocks, 80 building cards, 60 counters, and one dice.

This version requires a lot of waiting. You roll the dice, set the timer to 1, 2 or 3 and try to build with blocks to copy as many cards as possible. I found the randomness of how much time you get kind of frustrating. I definitely prefer games with less randomness and more skill. It's frustrating if your opponent gets more time than you. Basically it's a solitaire game you can play with other people.
The components are quality Ravensburger (except for the timer which is kind of chincey). The only kind of weird thing is that one block is almost black, but is actually a navy purple color. The card shows the block as purple and that kind of threw me at first, but my work involves work with color and most people probably wouldn't notice.
Basically, I found this game boring. The Junior version is much faster paced, involves competition, is more equitable, etc. Don't waste your time with this one!
Our daughter loves games and we try to find games that we can play with her without us having to "dumb ourselves down" (for lack of a better description) and pretend it's harder than it is in order to play it with her. There are a lot of games out there that adults can play with kids in which they can fully use their own skills and knowledge which makes it more enjoyable (forbidden island is a great example and is our current favorite kids game). To us it feels patronizing and untruthful to have to "pretend" that a game is harder or more interesting than it really is in order to play it with our daughter. We'd rather play games that really are engaging for all ages rather than pretending that they are.
If you have kids that will play together then this game would be great for them. For adults playing with kids, you'll have to pretend it's harder than it is or else you'll easily beat the kids which isn't very fun or fair for them.
1. THE FUN FACTOR. If you like the challenge of building things within the limited time, then this game is very good. Your coordination of eyes, hands, and speed will determine the fate of the game. As each takes his/her own turn with the unknown design of the building flash-card before you, there is a sense of anticipation building. All these add to the excitement of the game.
2. THE BUILD. The materials used for this game is a top notch. The wooden blocks are well made, designed with no sharp corners, but have rounded corners (so no accidental cuts!). The cards are glossy and strong. The timer is also well built and not subject easy breakage. The quality is indeed top notch.
3. THE EDUCATIONAL FACTOR. The game does promote Logical element - not a strong one, but adequate for the kids. Even the box says, "ages 8 and up," it is clearly fun for 6 or 7 years old kids.
Overall, I was playing with my kids, there was a lot of laughter yet some intensity as well! Also, the game is not long (20 minutes), so that is good for busy adults! Recommended!

Very easy conceptually but challenging to execute. The addition of the die adds chance into the mix as well so it isn't all skill. Great for family night. Read morePublished 5 months ago by K. Shay
