I recently picked up Leo Goes to the Barber, a cooperative game for up to 4 players. It’s hard to find a cooperative game that’s not text-heavy, so this game is perfect for kids as young as 4.
Rules: Build a path for Leo to navigate on his trip to the barber! Leo advances the number of spaces on the card, but if he lands on a mismatched color, Leo stops to talk. If he doesn’t make it to the barber on time, his hair grows longer and he heads back to bed. You have 5 tries to make it to the barber otherwise you all lose!
Skills Used: This game has a strong memory element.
Cost: $25 on Amazon.
Time: 30 minutes.
Modifications for Kindergarteners: None!
Can it be played if pieces go missing: You could play this game with about 90% of the pieces in the box.
Is this a game only kids would like: Adults may enjoy this as well, but it won’t be something they pull out once the kids go to bed.
