Game night is always fun in our house and my kids absolutely love to try out new ones whenever they get the chance! Sometimes it’s hard to find ones everyone likes and that all my kids are able to play.
A new favorite from Blue Orange Gams is Dr. Eureka. I actually opened this up before my older kids got home from school and my two year old was all over it! He was very excited about all the balls that it comes with and got right to work sorting them by color. While that isn’t the design of the game it was a bonus color, sorting and matching lesson for my toddler!
The real object of the game is to pass the balls, or molecules, between the the test tubes to match what’s on their challenge card. My toddler Jax had the general idea even before we looked at the actual rules of the game! My six and eight year olds absolutely love it. It’s so fun playing games with them and now that they can both read, they can actually read the cards themselves and have played on their own without us many times!
I love the way it makes them think and challenges their cognitive processing skills! They also have to be very cautious and use their motor skills as they pass balls between the tubes without touching them. All the while they think they are just having fun!
The test tubes are good and solid and not easily breakable and the balls are solid as well so they can’t be crushed. This game definitely has lasting power and isn’t going to be trashed after a few uses like so many games out there that weren’t designed so well.
Be the maddest scientist around!
Dr. Eureka, designed by the award winning Roberto Fraga, is a tactile problem solving and brainteasing matching game. Players pass colorful molecules between test tubes to match the pattern on a challenge card, building both cognitive processing and dexterity skills. Play it alone or at a party with friends, Dr. Eureka is your best bet for some crazy molecule juggling fun!
