Scientists have discovered mutant species on a remote uncharted island. Now the race is on to collect as many animals as possible for further study.

A keen eye, speedy hands and mental agility will serve you well! For 2 to 4 players. Ages 6 and up.
It’s time for Old MacDonald’s barnyard dash! Just shake the silo to see which animal all players need to match.

Win 4 tokens and take home the grand prize. Fine motor skills, visual perception and counting skills grow and strengthen every time you play.

When you play Choice Words, recalling popular phrases is only half the battle. With two types of game play, you’ll need to match other players’ answers – either the most or the least! In “Scratch Play,” score one point for each phrase that other players haven’t thought of. In “Match Play,” score points for correctly guessing how other players will fill in the blanks. As time runs out, the phrases get more far-flung in this hilarious contest of wits and words. Fun for the whole family! Two or more players. Ages 10 and up.
Every picture is worth a thousand laughs as players try to match their PicWits photo cards with the judge’s caption card. Which picture in your hand is the perfect fit? Of course, it all depends upon personal perspective! Your photo card will be assessed against the cards of your competitors; the match-ups can be literal or ludicrous, accurate or outrageous. If the judge picks your card, you win the round! Each round is filled with surprising and comical comparisons from a wide range of people, places, things and events. With a new judge every round, tailoring your photo card to perfectly fit the personality of each player makes for one hilarious game! Four or more players. Ages 10 and up.
