CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Blink is the lightning-fast game where two players race to be the first to play all of their cards.
Using sharp eyes and fast hands, players quickly try to match the shape, count or color on the cards.
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.
Fast and portable, Blink is instant fun for everyone!

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.
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!
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!
