LinkIt! A Game For all the Family


We were sent a brilliant new card game to try out its called LinkIt is a game for all the family Its a card based game and comes complete with instructions and packed in a fabulous round storage tin the perfect size to just pop into one of the kids bags or into your own bag which makes it a great game to keep handy when you are on the move say if you were going on holiday on the train or aeroplane this will keep the kids busy for hours especially if they are competitive like my boys!

There are four different versions of the game, I'm not going to lie when I first picked up the instructions out of the tin I thought "wow" this seems complicated when in actual fact the rules of the games are fairly easy for me to understand but the question was would the boys pick it up?

Each game version depends on the number of people playing and their different ages. This is the type of game that anyone can be the winner and it doesn't matter about their age as it is impossible to cheat or have a game plan.

The game requires you to spot links between each deck of cards but you have to be fast to be able to win the game. The game is very addictive and the boys found it hard to put it down once they knew how to play LinkIt, the great thing about the game is that all players turn their cards at the same time which saves the endless squabbles about who gets to go first.

Although there are four different games you can play we found the first one was the easiest to play I think over time as the boys grow I will teach them the other versions as they didn't want me to teach them the other games because they were having far too much fun playing this game.

The game is really basic the winner is the one that manages to get rid of all there cards first, there are two decks of cards an orange set and a blue set, the orange set is placed in the centre and the blue set is shared out between the players. First you turn over a card in the centre then you all turn over the first card on the top of your personal pile and its the first person to match the link and that is able to get rid of their cards that becomes the winner, The Links are things such as milk and a cow or mouse and cheese, sounds easy right .... but even I struggled the boys were far better than me at matching the links and far quicker I don't ever think I have got rid of my baby brain!

The game doesn't take that long to play, I think the longest it took to play a game was around 20 minutes however it could be over within five if you are really fast with it.

It was so much fun playing together I love how competitive the boys got I also love how much it makes your brain work without knowing it, it was really educational for the boys even my two-year-old was trying to join in.

Overall I loved the game Linkit and so did the boys it is a great game to play on rainy days, school holidays, on the go when the kids need entertaining it would also make a great stocking filler because of how compact it is which is another reason why I love it, it fits perfectly into my handbag making it really easy to transport I can see this really helping to improve children's vocabulary and also improve their concentration as it is a great brain trainer.

LinkIt is aimed at children 6+ and is available to buy HERE from Amazon priced at £11.95.
