Are your little ones fans of board games or puzzles? Mine are! Since my boys were younger, I always looked for games that encourage problem solving, critical thinking, coordination, fine-motor skill definition and of course, lots of fun! Till’ this day, my youngest boy could sit and solve puzzles for hours and both boys loves to play with board driven games. Now that our youngest one wants to follow in her brother’s footsteps, I must make sure that we purchase games that are both challenging for the boys and simple enough for my 3-year old to follow along and this is where PlaSmart Inc. comes in. PlaSmart Inc. is a global toy distributor specializing in smart, simple, toys and games. PlaSmart doesn’t just distribute toys but their focus is to encourage little ones to learn through entertaining toys, this simple idea has earned their products numerous and prestigious toy awards. PlaSmart Inc. was generous to sent along one of their award winning games, Squashed.
PlaSmart’s Squashed game play is simple… Squased is played on a cube, the four outer sides get pieces put in specific places at the start of the game and the king piece goes on top in the center of the cube. To start the game, the first player rolls a 6 sided die to move, the die has the number 1, 2, or 3 on it (simple for little ones to follow). The players can only move in a straight lines, as you move across the cube and cross over another player’s piece you can stomp it into the cube and the player will lose one of their four pieces. If a player gets to any spot on the top side near the king piece, the player can pick which side to rotate the cube and choose which opponent to squash on another side. The last player with a piece wins the game, this game is perfect as it only takes around 10-20 minutes from start to finish, perfect so no one gets frustrated over loosing. 😉 Your little players can Squashed their opponent and have fun while learning how to solve strategic moves!
