ConeZilla, By Foxmind - REVIEW

Nature/ Type:          Educational game for kids 

Rating:                     ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 

Recommended age:  6 year-old ++   

Who would love this: Kids that love to learn through games (and of course, anyone who enjoys a good scoop of yummy ice-cream will find this game appealing!) 

I am a BIG fan of clever and engaging educational games. ConeZilla by Foxmind falls within this category perfectly, and we are so pleased to be given a chance to review this game by Leisure Learning

Why I love ❤️ this game: 

(1) Learn About Number Values & Numerical Order In A Real Fun Game 

This is an awesome game for kids to learn about number values and numerical order. To play this game, each player grabs a delicious-looking starting cone with a flavoured scoop that marked with “1”. Next, spread the rest of the scoop-shaped cards (each marked with one of the numbers from 2 to 49) face-down on a table. Now the REAL fun begins! Players take turn flipping over a scoop, look at the number, and decide if they want to add it on top of their growing cone or flip the card back into place. The objective is to build the most spectacular 10-scoop ice cream with ascending value of numbers (ie the lowest number at the bottom, and highest at the top). Beware: player can only add a scoop that has a number that is superior to the current top scoop (eg. you can’t put a “9” on top of “10”). 

(2) Decision-Making & Memory Game - ALL IN ONE 

Our 7 year-old loves this game and the strategy component hidden within! The rules might sound straightforward, but there are so many decisions and thinking involved to really nail it. First, players need to memorise the position of the cards that have been “passed” and flipped back as we might need the numbers at the later stage of the game. We also need to consistently make quick decisions on whether we want to “add” a number (and risk limiting our future options for scoop), or pass a card (hoping to reveal a scoop with lower value with closer proximity next turn). We are loving the tactical element of this game! 

(3) Game With Deliciously Irresistible Ice-Cream Theme 

Any game with ice cream theme is almost always a guaranteed win for our kids. The design of the game is attractive and deliciously appealing! Our kids love naming their flavours - “Cherry Caramel”, “Maple Syrup Pecan”, “Rainbow Sprinkles”, “Cookies and Cream”, and many more. I love how classic and scrumptious they look! The thick-cardboard scoops are large and easy to be grasped by little hands. I also love the box with compartments to keep everything organised.
