Who would love this: Art + board game lovers!
My heart danced in JOY the first time I saw this “Postman Observation” game from Londji . This is one of the most artistically delightful games I have ever seen; it’s quirky and so aesthetically pleasing! Thank you Antipoda Co for sending this pocket version game to us!
Why I love ❤️ this game:
(1) Beautiful Observation Game - Our family loves observation game. Londji elevates the experience by incorporating fun elements in it such as a “mission-fulfilling” postman theme, whimsical houses, and even fables characters! The rules are pretty simple. First, assemble the interlocking game board pieces in random order; each player is allocated with equal number of “letters”. The aim is to spot the specific house indicated on the challenge card and be the first to deliver a mail to the right house. This is a frantically fun game that can be played competitively, or cooperatively in true postal service style (like what my kids ended up doing 🤣). I love that the game board pieces can be arranged in different configurations, and how everyone can join in the fun simultaneously! This is a pocket version so the components are smaller, but that sure doesn’t affect the awesomeness of the game!
(2) Artwork- I love the unique and playful artworks in muted colours; they’re artistic, romantic, and full of childhood nostalgia. I love the classic European houses: large rectangular and arched windows, chimneys, interesting roof lines, mixed of sweet and boldly painted exterior. You can also find cheeky small cottages belonging to 3 little pigs and Hansel and Gretel’s candy house “hidden” within the town, and some community buildings such as a school, hospital and fire station.
(3) Different Difficulty Levels- I love that the challenge cards have different levels of difficulty. Some are straightforward (spot the exact same house), some are challenging (eg find a white house with red door but without a chimney). This is a game for all ages!
(4) Quality - The quality of this game is top-notch! The product is proudly created in Barcelona and made of sturdy recycled cardboard and paper. The components are stunning. I also love the drawstring bag and the beautifully-made box.
