Rating:                     ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 

Recommended age:  7 year-old ++   

Who would love this: Anyone who loves science and wants to learn it in a fun way 

If you are a fan of “Go Fish” or “Happy Families”, you would LOVE KOSO Games! I previously wrote a review on “Go Fish Dinos” - a must-have for all dinosaur enthusiasts. Today, I’m going to talk about “Go Fish Science”, another awesome game that would attract anyone who loves science and its wonderment! 

Why I love ❤️ this game: 

(1) "Go Fish" Game with A Science Twist - Like the classic “Go Fish” game, the player that collects the most groups of 4 cards, wins the game. One major difference: instead of shouting out numbers, we fish for science categories! Included within are 52 cards, divided into 13 categories (of 4 cards each) related to science. We get to learn about “Natural Disasters”, “Dangerous Plants”, “Precious Gems”, “Fast Land Animals” etc. I am loving the wide range of subjects covering different branches of knowledge. I love that each category is colour coded (eg all the “Big Discoveries” cards have light blue frames on them). This game would appeal to older kids who are discovering their favourite branches of science, and who want to learn more about all things in general. I love how the cards combine interesting knowledge in an engaging way! 

(2) 4 Fun Facts On Each Card - Each card features a picture and 4 fun facts of a specific subject. For example, the category of “Danger: Sharks” includes 4 cards - Great White, Bull, Tiger, and Hammerhead. From the “Hammerhead” shark card, we learned that the shark is named after its uniquely shaped head, they have 360 degree of vision, they can tan from light brown to black in shallow water, and they are known to attack people even if not provoked. I LOVE the simple language and cool facts! 

(3) Strategy Game - The classic “Go Fish” rules apply - the objective is to gather the most groups of 4 cards by asking another player (player B) for a category of cards, or drawing from the pile when player B does not have the requested cards. The game incorporates strategy, decision-making, memory skill, and a touch of luck. 

(4) 2 Other Ways To Play - The game also includes 2 alternative ways to play - “Big Fish” and “The Big Tuna”, which essentially involves a player reading the clues and the other to earn points by guessing the subjects. 

Another awesome game!
