Monster Bake

Fall 2012 Games
Ages: 5 & Up
Manufacturer: HABA
Price: $14.50

In this unique game, children use a wooden spoon with a hole in it to scoop up colored wooden balls from the game's box, which is shaped like a mixing bowl. Players must pick up the balls that match the colors on a card that is drawn. The first player to scoop each of the balls into his or her own bowl yells "Monster Stop," and they get to keep the card. Scooping up the balls is far trickier than it may sound, especially if there are several players with spoons in the bowl. The first player to earn five cards wins the game.

The game is crafted of high quality materials and the illustrations are colorful and appropriate. Game play goes pretty quickly and keeps kids of all ages engaged, making this a fun choice for a family game night.
