Being a mother of a an almost 6 year old, you can imagine how important it is to have fun games at home to play. I grew up loving games, and still do. My husband and I host game nights all the time, and I am sure our son will follow right along in our footsteps. To be honest, it doesn’t seem like they come out with new board games, or card games before we get bored with the ones we have. So looking outside the box (see what I did there :-p) was what we needed to do when searching for new games for our family game nights.
Now days I see so many games that have the same type of game play as another. For example the Out of the Box game called Snake Oil has the game play feel of Apple to Apples. Its not exactly similar, but the way to determine the winner of each round is the same.
This game is recommended for children 8+ and as previously stated my son turns 6 in about a week. It was a bit hard to play with him as he could not read all of the cards, so it made not cheating hard. We had to look at his cards several times to help him. He did have fun though, and that’s all that matters to us.
So, how do you play this game you maybe wondering eagerly.
Basically 1 person adopts the customer card persona (Nurse, Cab Driver, Teacher, Dog, etc) then the other players pair up two if their cards in their hands to create a product to sell. You create a pitch, and then pitch it to you the customer. It can be silly, or realistic but after pitching the customer decides what product best suits him. Whom ever he/she picks, wins that round and keeps that customer card as a way to keep track of points.
It gave us all a chance to think outside the box, and really think about what the customer might really want. Sometimes we ended up with cards that made no sense what so ever, but they were the funniest rounds to play. This would even be a game great enough for my adult friends to play.
