Who would love this: Young Board Game Lovers!
Our family LOVES board games, but it’s not easy to find one that would interest BOTH of my kids given their age gap and different personalities. Antipoda Co recently sent over this “Save The Cat” game from Londji , and I am so pleased to see my two cheeky ones playing with this harmoniously like two serious comrades with a high mission to accomplish 🤣.
Why I love ❤️ it:
(1) Simple Rules for Young Kids- Easily-comprehensible rules, bright and appealing game board, interesting fire-fighting theme! This game caught the two kids attention immediately with its purposeful “rescue the cat” mission. I love that this is a cooperative game, meaning my two kids need to put their heads together and use their verbal communicative skills to fulfil an important task of saving a life! It was super cute watching them discuss about where to place the fire counters, when to use the water buckets, and which option to take when they roll the dice. It is a simple game of moving upwards and downwards, with a single purpose of saving the black Totoro-lookalike kitten trapped on the roof, whilst putting out fire of different sizes along the way. This is a fantastic 2-6 players game that emphasises on teamwork and cooperation!
(2) Count + Strategise- This game encourages kids to count and strategise; the “firefighter” needs to climb up and down the burning 4-storey building according to number sequence from 1 to 12; two buckets of water are needed to put out a “large” fire, whilst only one bucket is required to extinguish a “small” fire. The two kids counted, debated, discussed, and proudly reached agreements on each next step!
(3) Great Game Components- The components are artistically-made and eye-catching undoubtedly! The fire engine, building base, fire, and water bucket tokens are made of thick recycled cardboard, the 3D wooden firefighter and cat figures are super adorable, and I simply love the uniquely-designed dice. I love that the product is made in Barcelona with strict quality control.
(4) Awesome Storage Box- The storage box is durable and beautifully-illustrated, and I love the organised drawstring bag for components storing.
Thank you Antipoda Co , this is an amazing game for small kids!
