What It Is
Blue Orange Games took its popular pattern recognition game, Spot It!, and gave it a spooky twist. Spot It! Halloween features more than 50 different Halloween-themed illustrations (such as a skull, black cat, and trick-or-treat bag) on 55 cards. The object of the game is to find matching symbols between cards.
There are five ways to play the game, but essentially you are always looking for matches between two cards. There will always be one, and only one, matching symbol among the eight colorful images on any two cards. Players try to be the first to find the match. Depending on what game you're playing, the player with either the most cards, fewest cards, or no cards wins.
Spot It! Halloween comes with 55 cards and a portable round storage tin. The game is for two to eight players.
Is It Fun?
This is a fun matching game that can be played around Halloween as well as year-round. It's easy to learn how to play, but challenging in its requirements of visual recognition and quick mental processing. There are times when the match is instantly visible, and then there are times when the match is a little harder to find. The compact storage canister makes it easy to take and play Spot It! Halloween on the go.
Who It’s For
Spot It! Halloween is for ages 7 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
There are several other Spot It! versions: the original game, MLB, NHL, On the Road, and Spot It! Jr. Each game is sold separately.
These games are an outstanding and simple way for kids to develop visual acuity in an entertaining setting. Sometimes the match will seem so hard and then when you find them, you'll wonder why it took you so long. But that's part of the fun and skill.
