Who would love this: Board Game lovers, especially those who enjoy mathematics + strategies
“Win Win Winter” from Londji is probably that sort of board games that I would overlook easily, so I’m SO SUPER grateful to Antipoda Co for recommended this and sent over a copy for a review. We weren’t quite sure initially about the instructions, but once we started playing it, the game makes perfect sense and we absolutely LOVE it!
Why I love ❤️ this game:
(1) Adorable Mathematics-Focused Game- This is a game that can “grow” with the kids; our three-year-old enjoys throwing the dice and moving her squirrels around the game board without thinking much about anything; our six-year-old (who enjoys mathematics in general) strategises his move to maximise the accumulation of acorns! Even the adults have a great time planning their steps to compete with the kids in this adorable game of skills! I love that the game involves a lots of decision-making moments; once a dice is thrown, we need to decide which of the two squirrels to advance forward, whether a squirrel should gather (or even snatch) an additional acorn along the journey (noting that the weight of the acorn would “slow down” the pace of getting home), and how to utilise the special “9” on the dice. The decision-making is closely related to calculation, subtraction, and forward-planning. I love game that encourages learning through play. “Win Win Winter” is exactly that sort of game where your kids would be counting and doing maths, but with a BIG happy grin throughout!
(2) Mission of Helping the Squirrels- I love the cute squirrels saving up for winter theme (it reminds me of Scrat from Ice Age and its crazy obsession of acorns collection!). The kids love the mission of helping their squirrel friends to accumulate winter stock before the cold closes in.
(3) Awesome Components - We love the brightly painted wooden squirrels, the thick cardboard game board pieces, round acorn tokens, and the marvellous artwork that makes everything of Londji looks extraordinarily lovely and heart-warming. Londji products are made in Barcelona from recycled/ used materials. I also love the muslin drawstring bag and sturdy storage box.
This is a beautiful board game that is artistically delightful, and so enjoyable to play with!
