Peaceable Kingdom: 4 Classic Card Games for Modern Kids Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner - Elissa #31!

It's no wonder the game, Fish Stix, has won numerous awards!

•Parents' Choice 2009 Gold Award
•Dr. Toy 10 Best Games of 2009
•Dr. Toy 100 Best Products of 2009

My kids have a blast playing this! The entire family gets in on the action and it truly is a lot of fun. This game is recommended for ages 6-12, 2 to 4 players. However, my husband and I love it, too!

I think younger kids could grasp the concept as well. There is no reading required.

Also, the fish tokens don't have the tendency to slide all over the scoreboards. That's great when you're moving around matching your fish up.

How to Play:

Fish Stix is a visual strategy game. To start, players place 1 fish stick in the center of a table where all players can reach it. Give 3 sticks, 1 scoreboard, and 6 fish tokens to each player. Players take turns matching fish by color and direction. For every fish matched, a player moves her fish tokens that number of spaces on her scoreboard. The first player to move all tokens to 10 wins!

One lucky reader will win their 4 Classic Card Games from Peaceable Kingdom! How fun will those be?!?
