Parents' Choice Foundation: Reviewing Children's Media Since 1978



Spring 2014 Games
Ages: 8 & Up
Manufacturer: Gamewright
Price: $10.99

Players ages 8+ work to score the most points, and avoid penalty points, by crossing out as many numbers as possible in the four colored rows of the scoring sheet. Two of the rows show numbers in ascending order from 2- 12, the other two rows show the numbers in descending order. Although numbers must be eliminated from left to right, players do not have to begin with the number farthest to the left. Instructions include specific examples, penalties, scoring and what it means to end a round or lock a row.

In a family with six kids, it's not easy to keep everyone's attention on game night. Qwixx helped keep the whole family at the table, in part, because everyone can earn points even if he's not the active player. Our young mathematicians sharpened quick decision making skills and were fascinated by how choosing which dice to add together affected the gameplay. And fun was had by all.
