~I received Blue Orange Games for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
We love continuing our tradition of weekly board game night. It does tend to bring out our more competitive side but it is all in good family fun. Blue Orange Games are always fun and Thumbs Up! and Color Clash are exciting, fast-paced and unique. Those qualities have helped make these instant hits in my house.
Thumbs Up! is a high speed matching game that will get your adrenaline flowing! The goal is to be the first to stack different colored rings on your thumb, based on the order shown on the challenge cards. Flip one challenge card over and everyone follows the sequence of numbers and colors on the card at the same time. You have to be extremely quick in this game to win! The first to say Thumbs Up! with the correct order of rings scores the challenge card.
This game is for 6 and up and for 2 to 6 players. It works on several skills such as visual perception, focus & attention and processing speed. It seems that I have finally found the game I am extremely good at. This game is played with the way my mind works so I win at this one a lot. Usually I am the one to loose board games the most so this was a nice change of pace…for me!
