Kinderspiele aus aller Welt

from france to australia


In the series Meine ersten Spiele, which is designed for having age-relevant fun with simple rules, the collection offers 24 games from six continents. In two versions, you use cards with games from all six continents, marked with 0 to 5 for North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. In the Einführungsspiel you fly the plane to the continent of the top card - it is named on the front side - and then play the respective game; if you win it, you score a point. When four cards are played, you win with most points. In the Weltentdeckerspiel, you use all 24 cards, stacked face-down. All give a guess on the continent of the top card, based on the images on the back side; if you are right, you score a point. Then the plane is flown to the continent and the game is played, the winner scores a point. In this version, too, you win with most points after four cards.

Game options are mostly dexterity and action games - throw cubes, clap other players hands, throw marbles, throw a stick, put shoes on a chair, throw tin, puff ball away, push marbles through opening, find items in the room according to result of a color die roll or find a hidden ball or stack cubes or throw boomerang. Other games let you drop chips and move pawns accordingly; if the woman reaches the well first, all win. There are also games to rearrange cubes, a Nim variant of removing cubes or taking the last cube or spot where a cube is missing.

A very attractive collection of familiar mechanisms that are known in many countries, the assigning to countries and continents is plausible, rules are simple and components are pretty.
