Raccoon Rumpus Review (Educational Insights)

What It Is

Raccoon Rumpus is a really cute matching game where players get to dress up raccoons. The game, which is for two to four players, comes with four raccoon cards, 20 costume cards, a jumbo color die, and a jumbo costume die. The object is to match colors and shapes to be the first to collect five costume cards.

To start, place all 20 costume cards face-up in the center of the playing space. Each player receives a raccoon player card. Take turns rolling both dice and picking a costume card that matches both dice. For instance, if you roll "yellow" and a "top," you could pick any costume card with a yellow shirt and place it on your raccoon. If you roll a rainbow, you can pick any color costume you want. But if you roll "underwear," you lose all your costume cards.

The game instructions also include a bonus way to play this as a memory game where all the costume cards are face-down and you only roll the color die.

Is It Fun?

This is such a cute and silly game that helps reinforce matching, color recognition, and counting. Preschoolers will love picking out the costumes and dressing up their raccoons as they play.
