Blue Orange DayAll kidd-ing not aside, part of today at Totally Kids was “all fun and games” thanks to our “game guru”,  Jack, from the game company, Blue Orange. He introduced us to their newest games, Spot it Party, Nada, Flash and Ooga Booga.

Spot it Party

I have to tell you Michelle, you’re going to love Spot it Party even more than Spot It. It has 6 new mini-games guaranteed to hook everyone in for hours of fast paced fun. The next time you pay us a visit, good luck beating Lindsey at this new game.

Flash

There was Flash, a lightning-fast dice dash where players race to complete eight challenges of dice combinations while racking up the most points. We’re told, best not blink when playing this game as any player could score in a flash!

Ooga BoogaThen there was Oooga Booga that got Karin’s vote.  That game was way over my head, well actually my memory. But Karin, mother of three school aged children voted it in with a Yonka, Iga, Moki, Paya, then sticking out her tongue! If your listening skills are better than mine you will enjoy the challenge this game offers; listen closely, remember the cues, and recite the chant without any mistakes. If you hold out the longest and become the last chanting caveman standing, you will win.

Nada

Unfortunately, there was Nada enough time to play all of the games. With just a few rolls of the dice, Nada quickly became my favorite.

Begin by scooping up two batches of dice and let them roll. Quick! All players scan the array for matching symbols between the orange and white dice. The first to call a match gets to grab all the dice with that symbol.
No Matches? No problem! It‘s another chance to win. Shout “Nada!” to collect all the remaining dice. Think sharp and act fast to match, snatch and win.

Stop by Totally Kids fun furniture & toys Saturday, November 9th for Neighborhood Toy Store Day 2013,  and challenge our experts on any of these new games. Everyone’s a winner that day; there will be prizes for all who play.

The most simple of games can be the most fun. This new dice game can accommodate two to four players and includes 36 attractively designed dice—18 of them white with orange images on each side, 18 orange with white. Designs on each side include a palm tree, an anchor, a skull-and-bones symbol, a rabbit, a shark, and others.

Players start the three-round game by shaking up six white dice and six orange dice. They then throw them. Players scramble to find matching images, at least one of each color, and call out the match (“Palm trees!”). They get to collect the matched pair, and play continues until there are no more matches. The first to yell out “Nada!” at that point places his or her hand over the dice and collects the remaining ones. Anyone who does so prematurely must sit out during the next round.

This goes on for three rounds. The winner is the person with the most dice, making for a very simple game reminiscent of Pit. Nada is pure fun, something that kids living in a complicated time can use.
