Exact Change Continuum Game Review
I have tried a couple of Continuum Games and we like them all. This one helps learn to count change. My grandson was a bit confused with it until I helped him. He is four. My granddaughter on the other hand is six and she understood the concept completely! The game uses cards to learn to count the change. Dylan didn't really understand or except that theory. I have given them change since they were born first for their piggy banks then as they grew older to count etc. I always give them a baggy full on Halloween. I'm not a candy grandma. I want them to have every advantage. With Exact Change if the child is old enough to realize it is the same but written on cards they will love this game! Exact Change does state for ages 6+ but my grandson wanted involved also so we found a way!
Each player tries to play each of their cards so that all of their cards are gone first. The person that succeeds in playing all of his/her cards first gets to put money in the bank. The first player to reach two dollars in the bank is the winner! If only two dollars were the goal in life, right? I feel this game would be great for a few close aged friends or for a family game night with an older brother, sister, mom or dad helping the younger ones! This would be a great game to have packed with camping necessities or an overnight bag.
We have also tried GAMES ON THE GO a wonderful game to pack in your handbag, desk, glove compartment, picnic basket or suit case! It is full of games that can be played any place. In the car, while camping, on vacation, on a plane, at a Dr. appointment, at a sibling's sports practice - just about any where! Very easy to take along as it is no bigger than a deck of cards! My daughter, son in law and grandchildren used it quite often while on vacation during the many hours of driving.
