Review: Fast Flip from Blue Orange Games

*Disclosure: I received this product to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.

We are huge fans of Blue Orange games in this house. They always manage to be fun, easy for all ages to play and encourage creativity and thinking. We recently received a new game from Blue Orange called Fast Flip, which is just as great as earlier games that we've played. Here's a bit about it, from the product's website:

Get ready to scramble for the match in this crazy fruit salad! Match your fruits to a number, or numbers to a fruit; you don’t know what match you’ll have to find next! Whether you play with the tokens or with the cards alone, all players of any age will be fast flipping for this brain teasing match up. The game comes complete in a tin for your cards and tokens, making it an easy travel item. The magic distribution of fruits on the cards guaranties that there is always one correct answer. You just need to be the fastest to find it!

According to Blue Orange, this game is recommended for ages 7 and up, but there is no reading involved, so a younger child shouldn't have trouble with the game. My 6 year old daughter loves it and I often find her playing it by herself, looking for the matches. I loved how easy it was to catch on to the game. It only took a couple of minutes between opening the tin for the first time and being involved in a full on game with my kids. I also really like that there are variations on the game, so you don't get bored.

This is another excellent game from the Blue Orange Games family! Pick one up for your home or upcoming travels! The tin is small and everything fits inside, so it's easy to take with you on your journeys!
