Sleeping Queens Game
I had been hearing a lot lately about a game called Sleeping Queens. So, when I was browsing in Barnes and Noble a few weeks ago I picked it up. My first impression was that it was a cute little card game that may be a little young, but we would try it out.
This week I pulled out Sleeping Queens and it took off like wildfire. Since we started on Tuesday, the girls haven’t gone a day without playing this week. I think it may be because it’s a fairly straightforward game that most can play. The recommended age is 8 and up, but anyone who can do simple addition can easily play.
Sleeping Queens Game Rules and Strategies
The object of the game is to collect 5 queens or 50 points worth of queens. You can steal someone else’s queen or you can put their queen back to sleep (back into play for all players). There are ways to stop another player from stealing or putting your queen to sleep. The hidden educational part of the game is that you can discard cards that make an addition equation.
This is such a cute whimsical game. And, according to the distributors, was created by a 6-year-old little girl. I have to say it is 7 and 10-year-old approved!
