We love Hasbro, and have been happy customers for many years, well until our daughter started getting into littlest pets, and me having to open them and remove the hundreds of rubber bands they add to them, but that didn’t make me stop loving the products! We are a family that loves playing games, whether it is board games, card games, computer games, or console games. Playing games as a family helps us stay more connected to each other.
I recently got the chance to check out a new Hasbro game coming sometime in early 2011 called Ratuki.
About Ratuki (Ra-too-kee):
It’s easy to play, fun to win and totally addictive! Build piles of cards from 1 to 5, but watch out: it’s a card-slamming frenzy! Be the first to slam a 5 on the top of the deck, shout “Ratuki!” and the cards are yours. Get slamming and get winning!
Includes 170 cards, 5 reminder cards and instructions.
For 2 to 5 players.
Ages 8 and up.
My Personal Opinion:
As I stated above we love playing games of all sorts, when I first learned about Ratuki I looked it up online and showed it to Gillian, her remark to me was it looked boring, and she didn’t think she would like it because it was to much like math. We are currently working with Romain Numerals in math, and it was too much like school for her taste. However, I thought it looked fun, so when we got it we decided to check it out… It was funny because I read the directions, wasn’t to sure how to divide the cards up, so I just gave her half and I took the other. I showed her how we was suppose to play, then we started… She would sit there look at her cards and figure out which one she wanted to play, it was pretty funny, she would get ready to play a card and I would hurry up and throw one down and mess her all up. She goes “You are way to fast”. That is what the game is all about gotta be fast!
After we got done playing she made the remark that it was a lot funnier then she thought it was going to be, and I have to say I agreed with her. This is most definitely a game my family will be playing a lot of. it makes you think fast! I love how the cards have the different symbols for the numbers, and the different colors, it is like skipbo meets uno!
When Ratuki hits store shelves it will retail for $9.99.
