Roll-A-Saurus, By Professor Puzzle - REVIEW

Nature/ Type:          Board game for young kids     

Rating:                     ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 

Recommended age:  4 year-old ++   

Who would love this: Kids that love dinosaurs/ matching games/ competitive board games 

I love it whenever I discover a new game that both of my kids (4 and 7 year-old) can play together despite the age gap. Jedko Games sent us a sample of “Roll-A-Saurus” by Professor Puzzle recently- this is a fun little game that really brings out the competitiveness in us, and would definitely delight any dinosaur enthusiasts of all ages! 

Why I love ❤️ this game: 

(1) Board Game With Dinosaur-Matching Fun

Included in this colourful and playful box are 45 Dinosaur Pieces, 4 Scene Cards, 2 Game Dice, T-Rex Trophy (with a stand), Fact Poster, and Instructions. The Dinosaur Pieces are made up of 5 different dinosaur species (marked with number 1 to 5), in 3 colours (orange, green, purple) and 3 patterns (spotty, stripy, plain). The aim of the game is pretty simple; Roll the two dice - one dice would show the colour and the other the pattern. Now, grab a dinosaur that matches the colour and pattern descriptions as shown on the dice. The game will repeat many rounds until a player completes a collection of 5 species of dinosaurs, who will be awarded the golden T-Rex trophy! The game is jam-packed with excitement, fast and furious reaction time, and non-stop laughter. This is a fantastic way for young kids to learn about colour, number, and pattern recognition. 

(2) Matching Game Of Different Variants - Just Be Creative! 

The instructions suggested an “easier mode” for young kids where only one dice is used, and “second chance” is given when a player grabs a wrong dinosaur. Our two kids have also come up with many other play variants. They sort the dinosaurs by species/ colours/ patterns; they race amongst themselves, snatching up as many dinosaurs as they can find that match the dice each round. They named the dinosaurs, created a prehistoric story scene, and queued them up in rows. It’s amazing to see how creative the kids can get when imaginations lead the way!

(3) Fact Poster To Learn About Dinosaurs! 

The poster gives us some fun facts about each dinosaur; Do you know that some T-Rex were longer than a school bus? Triceratops were herbivores with 3 horns, brachiosauruses were about twice as tall as a giraffe, stegosauruses’ brains were as tiny as limes, and (probably the most “shocking” of all), pterodactyls weren’t actually dinosaurs!
