A fast-paced favorite
February 16, 2004

This card game is easy to learn, fast-paced, high-energy, very short, and loads of fun. We always play more than one hand and usually find ourselves laughing and squealing in the process. And we don't even have kids. It's a great tension buster, you get totally engrossed, and you've still got your entire evening left to play more Blink or another game.

Just try to beat your kids
June 12, 2003

In Blink, each player gets half the deck, two cards are placed face up, and you race to get rid of your cards as quickly as possible by matching either the color, the type, or the number of the symbol on the card. I would not liken it to War because unlike War there really isn't any luck involved. It's all about speed. This is a great game to play with kids, who can be surprisingly fast. My eight-year-old can beat me regularly. My six-year-old is slower, but I can handicap the game without her knowing it simply by giving myself a few extra cards. One time she laughed so hard while playing it that she fell off the stool she was sitting on. Even though it's only a two player game, it goes so quickly that it's easy to play with groups using a sort of 'tournament' format. My kids like to watch, though they much prefer to play. I highly recommend this game. It's simple, fun for both kids and grown ups, fast, and probably even a bit educational.

Fast Furious and Fun
October 28, 2001

Blink is a very simple game (basically a variant of War) but quite fast and furious. A game only lasts two minutes, so it's quite easy to give everyone multiple turns. I really dig the art and colors on the cards, too. If you're looking a quick game fix, give Blink a try. At the very least, it's really quite fun.
