Sometimes I wonder how toy and gameboard companies keep coming up with new ideas for games. Well, there is a fun, captivating, easy-yet-challenging game out there that is approved by the Mom Buzz! It's called Cir*Kis - so easy, anyone can play - but who will win??
Cir*Kis is for 2 to 4 players, is recommended for ages 8 and up and can take banywhere between 15 and 45 minutes to play. It's a game of Circles, Stars and Puzzles. You have a plastic board that has slots all around for you to place different colored pieces. (Each player chooses a color, between yellow, red, green and purple.) You get points as you use your pieces and your opponents pieces to create either a circle or a square. The tricky part is that each piece must be placed next to the last piece played. Yet, you don't want to make it easy for your opponent to create a circle or square and get points!
It's easy to keep track of pieces and scores during this crazy game, since it has these little scoring tracks that you put your peg in. No scrounging for paper and pencils to keep score! And there are little compartments on each players side to put your pieces in.
My husband and I thought it was fun for a game night. We are planning on inviting some family over to play with four people rather than just two. I think this would make a great game for your weekly game night - kids or adults-only. And my husband's family plays games after dinner on Christmas and Thanksgiving - this game would fit right in.
There is no real downside to the game, other than I wish you could play with even more people. Otherwise it's creative, makes you think and gets everyone in a friendly-competitive spirit.
Cir*Kis is created by Winning Moves Games .Winning Moves also creates exciting renditions of games like Scattergories, Go to the Head of the Class and Rubik’s.
