Recommended for ages 5 to 9 Players: 2-4 Play Time: 20 Minutes
Players try to beat the ogre to the treasure by creating a path from START to END. Along the way they need to collect three keys to open the treasure. Players strategize, cooperate, and build the path together. If they do it before the ogre gets there, they all win! Kids love working together to defeat the ogre. Building onto a path encourages kids to think two steps ahead and to look at all possibilities. Game play changes each game depending on where the keys are placed.
What is a cooperative game? It's a game where everyone plays together, no one is left out, and everyone has fun! In a cooperative game, players work together as a team against a common obstacle, not against each other.
Cooperative games emphasize play, not competition. Kids work together, they help each other and, most importantly, they play for FUN!
Cooperative Games foster:
- Non-stressful play situations
- Emotional development
- Shared decision making
- Creative problem solving
- A sense of community
- Positive self esteem
