We recently got to try out the game Take-Out by Marina Games. I have always liked dice games, and my son loves numbers and dice. I thought this would be a great family game, and I was right! We had fun playing this as a family from 7 years old, teens, and myself.
The logo is right on. Take-Out is a numbered dice game that is for 2 or more players and is suggested for age 8 and up. My son is 7 and actually caught on to the game very easily. He watched my stepdaughter and I play one game, and then he quickly wanted to join in. I helped him with the first round, but he was able to pretty much figure out how to play after that. It really is fast to learn.
It is also a great way for young players to practice their math skills. They practice counting, addition, or number combinations. This is something my son is doing in math right now. They do a lot of number combinations to equal the number that they are working on. So this game is perfect for his learning right now. Its also something that does not require tons of time, so you can play a game or two and they do not lose interest quickly. You can also add on as many players as you would like for a fun game, that I think would be great for a classroom, family, or a fun get together.
It is easy to learn for guests coming over for a game night, and it is fun to play with many ages! It does have some strategy type skills too, to make it more interesting for the older players. Having "free" spots, and how the scoring works makes you think about your combinations. I would definitely recommend Take-Out. It would be a great gift for the holidays and the small size is great for travelling, or great for a stocking stuffer.
Disclosure: I received this game free to review. These are my personal opinions.
