Children will learn:
- Communication and cooperation
- Problem solving
What is a cooperative game? It's a game where everyone plays together, no one is left out, and everyone has fun! In a cooperative game, players work together as a team against a common obstacle, not against each other.
Cooperative games emphasize play, not competition. Kids work together, they help each other and, most importantly, they play for FUN!
Cooperative Games foster:
- Non-stressful play situations
- Emotional development
- Shared decision making
- Creative problem solving
- A sense of community
- Positive self esteem
Since 1983 play has been the heart and soul of Peaceable Kingdom. Silly play, special play, wholehearted play! We create experiences to help kids play well together, so they can play well in the world. Our games and gifts connect kids and families, encourage learning and self-expression and let imaginations soar. And if a piece of your Peacable Kingdom game or gift gets lost in all that fun, we will gladly send you a replacement piece - just contact us directly with your need!
When play comes from the heart and feeds the soul, that's Peaceable Kingdom!

The game comes with an extra set of cards that make the game slightly more difficult for older kids, after they've mastered the relatively easy mode it starts with. Simply adding handful (6ish) extra cards into the action deck makes the game significantly more difficult.
After playing this game several times with my kids, I ordered copies for both of my brothers' families.
My only complaint is replayability. There isn't much difference in the way the game plays from one game to the next. There is a set of challenge cards that you add in after winning a few times, but they don't really change it up too much. So adults will likely be tired of the game after playing it a few times. But to be fair, that is going to be the case for nearly all games intended for kids.
I think if positioned correctly, the diffcultiy is good for young ones. It teaches them to continue working with others to accomplish something. There’s too many ‘participation award’ games out there.
It’s easy enough for my 5 year old, since you don’t need any reading skills. The kids have been learning to plan ahead, which has been great for them.
The best part of the game is that everyone wins together or loses together. My 6 year old has a hard time losing, so the cooperation involved has been great. She has been learning to be less selfish for the greater good of the group (the struggle is real).
It is easy to identify the cards that need to be removed if you’ve only got two players, and same with the extra challenging cards. Game pieces are of good quality and the company will replace any that you lose. Love this game and would recommend it to anyone.
