Fall 2017 Games
Ages: 7 & Up
Manufacturer: RoosterFin
Price: $25.99

Ninja Squirrels, a fast-paced game for two to four players aged seven years and up, includes four ninja squirrel character cards, sixty game cards, a four-piece "battle ring," twenty plastic acorns in four colors, and illustrated game instructions. Players take turns flipping game cards depicting funny ninja squirrels carrying colored acorns; if the squirrel and the acorn are the same color, players race to grab the acorn from the game board before their opponents. The game continues until all the cards have been used or all the acorns have been collected; and, the player with the most acorns wins the game.

Although the suggested age range is seven and up, the game is easy-to-learn with no reading required. The game hones matching, attention, concentration, and motor skills as well as turn-taking, following instructions, and good sportsmanship.
