Of all our favorite games, this is our number one go-to of all-time. The rules are simple enough for even young kids to understand, but the game still keeps everyone on their toes.
We never get tired of this one! Plus, you can play a whole game in about 10 minutes. Perfect for getting in a dose of family connection before sending your child off to bed.
Pro tip: When you’re playing card games with your child, this card holder is a must have for little hands. Your child can hold it to see their cards, or they can set the holder down on the table for a break. (This particular card holder has stood the test of time, as opposed to other card holders we’ve tried!)
Note: The manufacturer says this is for ages 8 and up, but according to several other families (including mine!) most 4-year-olds are ready for this game, especially if you help them out a bit with the number cards.
From the Manufacturer
Rise and shine! The Pancake Queen, The Ladybug Queen, and ten of their closest friends have fallen under a sleeping spell, and it’s your job to wake them up. Use strategy, quick thinking, and a little luck to rouse these napping nobles from their royal slumbers. Play a knight to steal a queen or take a chance on a juggling jester. But watch out for wicked potions and dastardly dragons! The player who wakes the most queens wins.
Deluxe Anniversary Edition: This edition includes new kings and new queens with special powers, plus sticker sheets – all in a collectible tin.
