Obstacles

There's lava ahead! Do we use a vacuum cleaner, a stick of butter, or a jar of fireflies to get past it? This game challenges players to use some unlikely tools and a good dose of imagination to travel a series of paths with barriers ranging from thumbtacks to mazes. Cooperation is paramount as teams of 2-5 players propose ideas and vote on the most effective—and often the most outlandish—method of escape. Along the way kids practice abstract thinking, creative problem solving, and negotiation. EeBoo continues its commitment to producing green toys, printing these game cards in soy ink on 90% recycled grey board. (eeBoo, $16.95) Where to Buy
