I just love when new games arrive at our doorstep, whenever they come it always means an impromptu game night. With the kids wanting to play them they sure get their chores, showers and everything else done quicker than normal. We have received two awesomely fun games from Blue Orange Games; Top That! and Gigamons. Both games are for ages 6 and up, they require 2-4 players to play. If you have a child or children who are able to play but also having children younger who can’t, you could always modify the rules so the younger kids can join in on the fun too. That’s what we do here, once Lucas is over playing the games we will go back to the normal rules.
Top That! promotes problem-solving, visual perception, fine motor skills, focus & attention, and processing speed. This game includes 55 Challenge Cards, 4 Sets of Props (4 Black Hates, 4 Red Cups, 4 Orange Tubes, 4 Green Coins, and 4 White Rabbits), and it comes with Illustrated Rules.
(Information provided by the Blue Orange Games website) Put on your hat, break out your props, and hide your rabbits in this magical match up! When the challenge card is flipped over, players race to stack their objects in 1 single pile following 3 simple rules: objects printed in color must be visible on the stack, objects printed in grey must be hidden INSIDE objects on the stack, and objects surrounded by stars must be kept empty. Do you have what it takes to master your magic in this grand stack ‘em up finale?
Gigamon promotes memory, focus & attention, and problem-solving. With this game you will receive 7 Gigamon Figures, 42 Elemon Tiles, 3 Rock Tokens, 4 Reference Cards, and Illustrated Rules.
(Information provided by the Blue Orange Games website) Enter a realm where magic reigns and the world’s elements are creatures with mythical abilities! On your turn, you will look at 2 of the face-down Elemons on the table, revealing them to all players. When you find a pair of Elemons, you will earn them and also invoke their unique special power, giving you an advantage for the rest of the game. Every three of the same Elemon you find, will summon the corresponding Gigamon to your side. And when you have 3 Gigamons, you win the game! Gigamons is a game artistically designed to engage the player’s imagination and carry them away to a new world.

Both of these games from Blue Orange Games are pretty fun and entertaining. Both children love how Top That! is about magic and the game pieces for that are super adorable! There are no complaints here about Gigamons either, I mean it’s about another world with awesome looking creatures.
