In the game players work together to move from 4 to 6 owls (depending on the desired difficulty) down the colored track to their nest before the sun comes up. Owl tokens are placed on the start places of the track. Players then draw hands of three cards. Every turn they play a card and draw another one. Most of the cards have colors on them. Whatever color is on the card played is the color any of the owls can move to. Owls must always move to the next instance of a given color on the board, unless another owl is already on that space. If the space is occupied, the owl may skip along the board to the next instance of the color. In this way players can get their owls to move quickly down the board if they work together to choose the same color in a row on their turns. Some of the cards have a sun token on them. If one of the sun cards is drawn a little sun marker is moved along a sun path at the top of the board. All the owls must make it to the nest before the sun gets to the end of the sun path. Then everyone wins.
This game can be thought of as a much improved version of Candy Land. While Candy Land might be okay for two year olds and younger three year olds, this game works much better for later three year olds up through about six or seven. I wouldn't buy it for an eight year old, but older children will enjoy playing this with their younger siblings, as is the case with us.Read more ›
"Hoot Owl Hoot" is a little more of challenge for a 3 year old. They recommend 4 years old, and I agree that would be the appropriate age. What is nice is they offer three different levels of play so that you can play a simpler version of the game (as in 3 Owl play) -- and then change levels to continue to play the game and feel challenged (as in 6 Owl play) as they master their level.
The goal of the game is to get your Owl home before the sun rises. You pull colored cards from the deck and move your Owl around the board back to their nest. You also pull sun cards and this moves a small sun across the top of the board (the sun rising). This too is a cooperative game which I can not say enough about. Working together as a team makes so much sense for the pre-school set I just wish I had thought of it! It really reinforces all the things they are being taught by parents and teachers - share, take your turn, work together, teamwork! As well as, colors, counting, matching.
The game is beautiful! And Owls are so popular right now so my daughter was delighted to see them. I like that it helps her work with her colors. Switch between two concepts and strategies - as in move the owl to the colored spot, and move the sun as it rises.
The box is a perfect size -- easy to store, easy to take to a friend or grandparent's house. It is also environmentally friendly!Read more ›
In "Hoot Owl Hoot!" I could help notice how bright and colorful the game is. The board game is also smaller (think half a Monopoly board size) so it is not too overwhelming for kids. The game can also be played in less than 20 minutes, which is a great for young kids who have short attention spans!
I tried to play this game with my 2 and 4 year old and they are just good at board games. While this game is for ages 4 and up, I think a 5 year old would be better at it and understand it more, and I think it would be fun for kids up to 12! The game does have a few things you need to watch and pieces to use, which is why I felt it was a little hard to play with my 4 year old, not to mention my 2 year old kept jumping in.
Hoot Owl Hoot! reminds me of Candyland as you have cards with colors on them and that's how you know where to move, but there are also owl tokens and a sun token to use in gameplay. We played this basically by drawing cards and moving together to the right colored spot to start off and will slowly work our way up to playing with the extra cards and sun token. It is great though because once you start playing and get the hang of it you can make it more challenging by using the extra owl tokens and spaces. There is also a time in the game where it encourages everyone to hoot like an owl, which is fun and cute!Read more ›
