This week on family game night we played a really fun cooperative game from Peaceable Kingdom called Hoot Owl Hoot. It’s really fun and a great way to spend some time working together and learning to cooperate as a group. We also made a really yummy Oreo candy bark that is perfect for a spring time game night snack.
Hoot Owl Hoot by Peaceable Kingdom is a cooperative game that is designed to teach cooperation, problem solving, and skills needed to work with a group. You goal is to get the owls to the next before the sun rises. It’s a simple game with simple rules but a lot of fun for all ages. It has varying difficulty levels and I have to say the difficult level we were not even able to complete so it can be challenging even for old her kids. It was a hoot to play!
In the box you will find:
1 game board
1 sun chip
6 Owl Chips
14 Sun cards
36 Color Cards
Who Would Enjoy This Game:
Hoot Owl Hoot is designed for 2-4 players ages 4 and up. I will say that we found it really challenging at the difficult level and really found it enjoyable for all ages all the way up to adult. We got addicted a little to try to complete the difficult level which was a we were not able to do. So it is really fun for all age levels. The game play is very simple but it’s a lot of fun trying to come up with the best strategy to win the game.
Is It Fun:
This game is a lot of fun. I like that we get to work together rather then compete so it keeps some of the rivalry down between the kids. We had a lot laughs trying to get the owls to the nest. It’s hard to find games that my kiddos all enjoy since we have a wide range of ages in our home and this is one that we all found fun and enjoyed playing.
The game is very easy to set up and play. Start out by laying out the game board and deciding what level you would like to play (3 owls for easy, 4 owls for intermediate, and 6 owls for difficult) and place them on the owl starting spaces, and put the sun in chip in the start space. Each player is dealt three cards to begin, which you can look at and even show the other players since it is a team game. On your turn if you have a sun card you must play it. When you play a sun piece you move the sun one spot. If you don’t have a sun you can play a color, you can more any of the owls you want to the next space of that color. If the next color space is occupied by an owl you skip over it to the next space of that color (this can really help you move the owls quickly). It’s just like playing candy land. On your next turn you draw a card to get back to three and do the same as above. You keep playing until you get all the owls in the nest (you win) or the sun makes it all the way to the last space and rises (you lose).
No concerns on this one. It’s a lot of fun, has various levels depending on the skill of the players, and since it is cooperative it’s a great way to learn to work together as a team.
