Kezao, By Laboludic - REVIEW

Nature/ Type:          Colourful card game  

Rating:                     ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️  

Recommended age:  6 year-old ++   

Who would love this: Kids and adults - anyone who loves a quick & simple game with gorgeous artworks! 

I love games with playful graphics and a hint of aesthetic touch. Recently, Divisible by Zero sent me Kezao from Laboludic - and I’m SO IN LOVE with it! This is a game that goes beyond and transcends all ages; everyone in the family enjoys this game - both kids and adults! 

Why I love ❤️ this game: 

(1) Quick, Easy & FUN Game - This is a simple game with easy rules. To start the game, distribute 7 cards to each player; pick two of the four dice, roll them, and race to find the card that depicts the colours combination indicated by the dice (for example, “with blue, but without yellow”). The first player to get rid of all their cards wins. This is an awesome game for colour recognition, brush up observation skills, and improve reaction time and reflexes. This game is “fast and furious” - dice are launched and thrown around, players frantically search their cards at the same time, and everyone plays simultaneously, with NO downtime. 

(2) Different Ways To Play - I love that there are a few different “dice combinations” depending on which 2 dice we are using. We can choose two “colour dice” that would indicate the two colours that must be present in a picture; we can pick two dice with “crossed out colour” which shows the two prohibited colours; or we can use a colour dice and a “crossed out colour” dice. We also tested out using 4 dice at the same time (which was challenging but fun), and created a “slow and relax” variant to make it easier for our 4 year-old. 

(3) The Gorgeous Artworks!!! - My favourite part? The quirky and artistic artworks by the French designer Aurelien Jeanney ! They are modern, vibrant, elegant, complete with clean lines and non-overlapping colours. It was a real joy admiring the wonderful wealth of illustrations on these 60 cards. The pictures range from the simple and straightforward (eg. green apples and yellow background), the slightly more complicated types (3-tiered birthday cake in no fewer than 4 colours and a bright red background), and the complex and exciting kinds (eg. colourful parrot / joker card). 

(4) Awesome Travel Game - The cards are thick and are of good quality. I love how compact and portable the game is, which makes Kezao an ideal travel game!
