Briarpatch has created the ultimate selection of board games perfect for family game night! My kids can’t get enough of our Briarpatch games so I thought I would share some of our new favorites. Each Friday I will introduce you to one of the games featured in the picture above so you can get a feel for the game and what my kids love about it! Since Shimmer & Shine has taken over my house as well as the toy isles this fall, we are going to start by featuring the new Shimmer & Shine game, Genie Friends Forever.
The Shimmer & Shine Genie Friends Forever Game can have 2-4 players with each game player getting to choose a game piece of either Shimmer, Shine, Tala, or Nahal. Each player has a magic carpet game piece featuring four different jewels. Each player collects jewels to fill their magic carpet and then he or she may fly over to Leah’s world where all the players work together to fill the genie bottle with jewels. My kids love to race to fill their magic carpets and I love that the game ends by all the players working together. It leaves all of the kids feeling good at the end of the game. No sad children feeling bad about not winning in this game! Shimmer & Shine Genie Friends Forever Game is great game for teaching kids strategy, teamwork, and positive social interaction. Your Shimmer & Shine fan will love the game board and the game pieces!
The Shimmer & Shine Genie Friends Forever Game is intended for kids ages 3 years old and up. My kids are 3, 5, and 8 years old and they all can play this game according to the rules and absolutely love it. It can be challenging to find board games that are both fun and easy enough to keep the attention of a 3 year old yet still fun enough to keep an 8 year old engaged for the duration of the game. Certain spots on the game board require you to toss the game token and every time it lands “boom zahramay” side up, my kids all yell the phrase and giggle. My entire family loves this new Shimmer & Shine game by BriarPatch. We have played this game more than a handful of times and my kids always complete the game. They never get bored with it, and they always ask to play it again. It has quickly become a family favorite.
I received the Shimmer & Shine Genie Friends Forever Game for review purposes. All opinions are mine alone.
