Players work cooperatively to help the owls fly back to their nest before the sun comes up. Play a color card and fly to that space. Draw a sun card, and you’re one step closer to the daylight. Help all the owls get home before the sun rises and everyone wins! The game is easy enough for first time game players and the game can be made infinitely more challenging simply by adding more owl tokens into the game. This allows the game to age with the child or for older kids (or adults) to play with younger kids.
Our Expert Opinion: We love this game (and other cooperative games!) because it is a gentler introduction to the concept of winning or losing because players win or lose TOGETHER! In both instances, more grown-up players can model how to do so with grace.
