2 erste Spiele

Color dice and first rules


Since 1974 the collection of games called „4 erste Spiele“ is an introduction into the world of game boards and game rules, rolling dice and moving markers. Now this collection is given a smaller companion by the name of “2 erste Spiele“, both again based on using color dice.

Sandkasten-Sammelspiel: The game board is assembled showing the sand box side and laid out ready to play, each player chooses an animal for his marker. Each of the four parts of the board shows five big marbles in different colors; players must cover those marble images with toys of the same color. If you roll blue, red, yellow, orange or green you take a toy of this color and put it on the corresponding marble in the board part of your own animal. White is a joker, you can take any toy. You can take identical toys, only the color is important.

Abenteuer-Leiterspiel: The board is laid out showing the Adventure Path, again each player chooses an animal marker and places it at the start of the path. If you roll one of the colors - blue, red, yellow, orange or green - you move your animal to the next spot of this color; if you roll white you lose your turn. If your move ends on an arrow or a slide you move your animal to the other end of arrow or slide, for the arrow upwards, for the slide downwards. If you are first to roll a color no longer available on the board you move to the tower and win.

In this version too, attractive components and simple rules plus topics that fit the age are an ideal introduction to game play. You train winning, losing, following rules, use components correctly and to distinguish colors on top of all that.
