Time for family game night again! Today I am bringing you my 4th installment… Arranging Game Corner to Corner from Haba. This brightly colored wooden game is quite a bit like Tetris in shape forms. This game is all about imagination; what can you build? My daughter is quite into building things right now with blocks, mostly castles since we’re in princess land. I thought this game would be perfect for her and her age group. Haba recommends this game to ages 3 and up. The parts are quite small, so I’d keep an eye out on the little ones. The game includes 62 wooden pieces of two shapes of wood, an “I” and a “L”… getting Nintendo flashbacks?
First, my daughter just did some free playing, sorting the pieces by shape and color. Then lining them up, stacking them, and making small “castles”. She got a little frustrated when pieces started falling so I helped her make the flat house. Haba gives you several ideas of what to make from animals to windmills. It was fun to do it together, helping each other. This game would be great for kids who have issues with “winning and losing”… or for only children. As usual, Haba brings us another safe, quality game, made in Germany. You can purchase your own “Eck an Eck” or Corner to Corner game here.
Special thanks to Haba for providing a sample game for review.
