Catch the Bingo is an excellent game for kids of all ages. This game isn't anything like the common bingo game of calling numbers and placing tokens on your card, it's so much better - and fun!
Each player gets their own pirate ship which you move around the board with the toss of a dice. Different things can happen during your turn depending on what you land on. If you're lucky you'll get to draw a number card. You keep these number cards until you reach the Pirates Market where you can choose to call a few of them, and discard the number cards you don't want. You have a limit of bingo tokens to place on your bingo board so you have to think carefully about which numbers would be best. You can also see what other players have on their bingo boards so you can discard the numbers that would help your opponents more than they'd help you. Occasionally there are great battles on the seas when you bump into another Pirate Ship where you could lose some valuable number cards, but you can get revenge by winning some of your opponents limited bingo tokens some time later in the game. The player who gets 3 lines first, wins the game.
This game has been well manufactured. The quality is excellent. Wet or sticky little fingers won't hurt the cards, so they'll last for a lifetime. The ships you move around are really cool too!
Ths game is great fun! And one thing that's really good about it, is that adults would have just as much chance of winning the game as a child would. When children play the game more they'd become more familiar with what numbers would be better to play on their bingo card and what numbers to discard in order to stall another player's progress. It's a light-hearted, fun game with a little bit of thinking/decision making. Great for kids learning numbers. Great for kids who want to play a REALLY fun bingo game. Great for families who want a game where everyone is on equal ground. You can't go wrong buying this game - an excellent addition to anyones games library!
