Practice Your Quick-Draw with Spot It! Party from Blue Orange Games #Giveaway

Posted by in Everything Else on / 26 Comments
Nick and I both come from families that love to play games. Family get-togethers seem to inspire the zany and competitive in us, and we always haul out the board games, card games, hobby games, and just about any kinda game you can think up to play together. So I was pretty excited when Blue Orange Games contacted me about sending me a couple of free games to review!

Blue Orange Games specializes in making learning fun. Spot It! Party is a great example – it’s a matching game that improves your object recognition and hand-eye coordination. You can play it with up to eight people, or as few as two (fantastic, for parents of young children who struggle to get together with bigger groups very often).
Nick and I played Spot It! Party last night, and we loved it!! 
My favorite feature of this game is that my competitive streak can come out without worrying about offending anyone – everyone’s rushing to make the most matches! Nick’s favorite thing about the game is the sheer number and variety of matches on the cards.

Nick and I agree that this is one game we will love playing with our daughter when she’s old enough to get it (this game is recommended for ages 10 and up). We think she’ll love the bright colors, fun pictures, and the big orange hand that players battle to win (or lose, depending on the game). We also love that there are several ways to play Spot It! Party, so kids (and parents) never get bored.
This game comes in a sturdy and attractive box, with a molded insert that neatly stores the rubber hand, eight red plastic card stands, and the deck of 55 cards.
I love this game, and I was super excited to “spot it” (ha) at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair two weeks ago! They have the coolest line-up of games, and I hope to collect most of them in the coming years. Speaking of which, keep your eyes peeled for our reviews of Keekee the Rocking Monkey and 20 Express coming up next week!
You can connect with Blue Orange Games on their website, Facebook, and Twitter. You can pick up a copy of Spot It! Party for $19.99, and see all of the Spot It! games here.

    I love to play Balderdash 🙂

    1. You know, I don’t think I’ve ever played Balderdash. I picked it up at a yard sale this year, though, so I will have to do that!

    The original looks like fun, and the travel one would be fun for the kids on a long trip!

    1. I didn’t see the travel one. I will have to go look!

    This game looks great! I’m wondering if I could use it in therapy. I love to play card games with family, friends, and clients. 🙂 They are easy to bring around. This one looks great, though. I hope I win it!

    1. Interesting question – I’ll bet you could! We were given one of the smaller ones, that’s for first readers (ages 6+), and it’s got sight words that you have to match to the related objects. It’s challenging, but even more fun than this one!

  4. We recently found a game called Jungle speed and it is our new favorite right now! It is a TON of fun!

    1. I haven’t heard of that one, I’ll have to check it out. Fun name!

  5. I like the spot it alphabet for younger kids! They should make a American Sign Language one!

    1. Hey, great idea!! That would be pretty cool!

    My favorite game to play with friends and family is Pandemic.

    1. I love this, I’m finding all sorts of new games to try out. Pandemic is a fun name for a game. What’s it about?

  7. My all time favorite game to play is probably yahtzee, its our old go to favorite (though really I have many that I just love!)

    1. I love Yahtzee!! I was at the mall the other day, and saw that there’s a new Doctor Who version. I’m a big enough nerd, I’m considering trading up…

    This is the first time I’ve ever heard of Spot It. It sounds like fun! ….. Debbie Johanesen

    1. It IS a lot of fun! Nick and I played it for over an hour, and I played it with my kid at Tutoring Club last night. It’s a great game!

    Our favorite board game to play is life. We play for hours 🙂

    1. I used to play LIFE with my siblings and cousins every year on holidays. Fun game!

  10. Tie between Pictionary and Catch Phrase!

    1. I enjoy both of those games, too!

  11. My all-time favorite game to play with family and friends is speed scrabble!

    1. I love Scrabble, but have never heard of Speed Scrabble. How does that work? Is it a variation on the original game, or an actual licensed game unto itself?

    I have never heard of or played Spot It. It looks like it would be fun to play with my grandsons! …Debbie Johanesen

    1. I imagine they would enjoy it. It’s for a slightly older age group than the boys, but if they’re good with matching games like memory, they may be able to get it anyway. I’ll be Kim and Jason would like it, though, at least!

  13. I’ve seen Spot It but have never played it. I would say our favorite game is Monopoly although we do play Sorry as well. We have quite a few games for family game night. You can never have too many I say. 🙂

    1. Sorry is the first board game I remember playing, and I was thrilled when I won my first game. I like Monopoly, too, but it brings out the uber-competitive side of me, lol!
