Review:
Hang out your laundry and have some good, clean fun with Clothespins! Each player starts with three open clothes lines to collect laundry cards by matching patterns such as dots or stripes, or types of clothes like boxers, shorts or skirts. In this game of strategy, youngsters can play their cards or discard them and hope to pick up better ones from the draw pile. Players must be sure to complete their clothes line before a bird swoops down and grabs the clean laundry-any player can steal another's card if they draw a bird card. With the many options for play-collect clothing by type or pattern, which cards to keep or discard, and when is it time to finish the line with a pole at the end-this game demands higher level thinking, strategy and decision-making. Lots of conversation transpires as players wait for opportunities to grab their laundry and finish their line.
