In addition to the igloos, you get a deck of 33 cards, and ten small wooden discs ("Thalers") of different colors, one color for each of up to 6 players. The cards have anywhere from one to 3 different numbers on them - each number corresponding to a quantity of beads. Nine cards are turned face up, and the game begins. Players take turns selecting and shaking the igloos.
If you think an igloo has a quantity of beads that matches one of the cards, you place it on that card, and put one of your Thalers in a tight-fitting slot located by the door of each igloo. If the card has 3 different numbers on it, you are correct as long as the count matches any of the 3 numbers. You might also notice that there is only one Eskimo pictured on that card. Remember, some cards have only one number on them. Those cards have only one matching igloo. But they also have three Eskimos.Read more ›
My wife loves this game. It's very easy to learn and is alot of fun. It is not a "Gamer's game" however. Serious gamers will probably find this much too light for their taste, which is precisely why the average non gamer will be quick to learn and play this game.
It has a pretty good "Fun" factor to it as everyone is picking up little plastic igloos and shaking them trying to determine how many beads are rattling around inside. That part can be quite entertaining. It also makes things more exciting when you go head-to-head against someone by placing your igloo on the same card with them.
If everyone knows how to play, you can play a game in as little as 15 minutes.
Educational value is fair to good since you are trying to match up the number of beads inside the igloos to cards with that number on them. So maybe a 6 out of 10 educationally. Replayability is relatively high, especially when you add a new player to the mix.
I like this game a lot because you have to listen carefully but choose quickly. It is hard, but fun.
I played it with my grandparents and my parents and we laughed a lot and had fun. I think even little kids would be able to play the game too.
