Education Outdoors Games- Review and Giveaway!



Spectacular Gift Shopping Guide!!!

Day 9!!




"With the average child watching over 20 hours a week of television, and with statistics showing violent images shown on t.v. reaching over 8,000 per child, Education Outdoors Inc. has been embraced by families that long for a refreshing change in the types of products available to their children. In a very short time, CAMP has received excellent support locally in Michigan, as well as nationally by selling over 1000 games in its first month. “It is our mission to bring families together to interact and learn about the outdoors.” 


Wow, now there's a mission I wholeheartedly agree with! And a new game would make the perfect gift for your child!
Our family loves to play games together, and Education Outdoors graciously sent me one each of their games to review. 
First we tried the Camp Board Game. This game is unique in that you can have different levels/ages playing at the same time, and it's fair for everyone. How? Because there are 4 levels of questions in the game-from easy to difficult. So, as your child grows, and expands their knowledge, they can advance to higher level questions! And parents and children can play together; I love that! We had a lot of fun with this game, and I found the questions/answers very neat. I'm the type of person that likes to learn things just...well...to learn them! So, I really enjoyed learning some things I didn't know about the great outdoors. 


The decoder...M's favorite part of the game!
The Snipe Hunt game is very unique and fun as well. Who hasn't heard of "Snipe Hunts" before?! You know, city boy visits the country, (usually snobby, making fun of the country boys). So, country boys decide to have some fun, and take him on a snipe hunting trip. Only...there is no such animal as a snipe! Well, now there is, and you and your family can enjoy snipe hunting! The "snipes" are really cute, and when removed from their nest, they start chirping and their eyes light up. This game is basically played like Capture the Flag, in that the two teams are racing to find the opposing team's snipe first. A lot of fun, and I like that it can be played outside or inside!





Watch this video for a better idea of how it works:



My little sisters had a lot of fun with the S'mores card game. In this game, players have to collect the 4 necessary ingredients for s'mores-marshmallow, chocolate and 2 graham crackers. But, that's not all-you get higher points for having a perfect marshmallow, than if you have a burnt marshmallow!! Players get to draw, discard, and try to collect the perfect ingredients for a perfect s'more. There are also bonus point cards, such as a perfect fire, broken stick, etc. that help boost your points. This is a lot of fun!








Education Outdoors is giving 3 of my readers the chance to win a game! The first place winner gets to pick which game they would like (Camp Board Game, S'mores Card Game or Snipe Hunt), 2nd place gets to choose from the remaining 2, and 3rd place gets the 3rd game!
