Sort It Out is an educational yet fun family game you can give as a kids birthday gift with pride. From an Australian company (University Games) whose mission is to create games that are quick to learn, that keep everyone involved all the time (even when it’s not their turn), that combine luck with skill so everybody has a shot at winning, and that make learning fun. What’s not to love?
Recommended for age 8 and up, this is a game where you put things in order. The ‘things’ are given, the correct ‘order’ isn’t so simple. For example: “Which Is Faster ? A Cheetah A Helicopter Or A Steam Train?”
Just goes to show that thinking can be fun. Especially when it’s competitive and timed as Sort It Out is. There’s a reason Jeopardy’s been going for so long on TV- because people enjoy the intellectual challenge, and kids do too. Like Jeopardy, the topics in Sort It Out are quite varied, so no one is really at any advantage or disadvantage. And the Amazon reviews point out that even when you don’t know the answer, it’s still good fun. And everyone plays on every turn, so nobody’s sitting around getting bored.
A simple game gift that gives the gift of thinking as well as family together time– that puts Sort It Out in the winning column in my book!
