Family Game Night: Rooster Race by Rooster Fin Games

We've been playing a lot of games lately. It's keeping the kiddos busy when it's too hot outside to play, or on rainy days. Today's featured Family game is Rooster Race, by Rooster Fin Games.

Rooster Race is one of those games that can be played by any age, and you can even play it by yourself! There aren't really too many games where you don't need a second player, which is one of the reasons I really like this game. When my children need some time to themselves, it's nice to have a few of these types of games on hand to keep them busy, but also separate, especially this time of year when they get sick of being around each other so often.

Rooster Race is a card game, but it's extremely easy to learn and play. It's a game of higher or lower where you have to guess if the card face down in your deck is higher or lower than the card that's face up in the middle of the table. If you guess correct, you take a corn from the center of the table. If you get it wrong, you put one back. The player with the most corn at the end, wins. Or in the case of a single player game, the game ends when you obtain all the corn. 

My kiddos really enjoy this game, and I'll pull it out when I get bored as well. It's kind of one of those quick games you can lay down when the ids are waiting for dinner to finish up, or the last few minutes before bedtime. I feel the box is a little bigger than it needs to be. Realistically, with the zip top bags they give you to contain the cards and the corn, the box could easily be half the size and still fit everything comfortably. The space is there, though, if you choose to keep everything out of the bags and instead keep them inside the box. Everything is all organized pretty well. Since it is one of those games with very little to it, it's also great for travel. You can throw just the cards into your bag and pull them out when you are waiting at the doctor's office and just guess higher or lower on the cards while waiting. Or take the whole game on vacation with you since it takes up very little room. The kids can play higher or lower in the car or at the beach/pool...literally anywhere.
