Product Description:

Subtitled, The Game of Shine and Seek, this game reminds me of flashlight tag and other games played as a child. Contains 36 woods tiles, 20 firefly tokens, 6 pawns with stands, 6 player tiles, 6 flashlight cards, 1 game board and 1 wooden die. Cardboard pieces are approximately 1/16 thick: sturdy. Hide your pawn in the woods with the wood tiles (some of these are trees and some are actually pests). Then catch fireflies to power up your flashlight in order to find other players. If you find a player, he/she is frozen for that round. Anyone found is "frozen but anyone else will sneak home. If your flashlight discovers pests, your turn stops immediately. It takes several rounds to "sneak home and takes approximately 20 minutes to complete the game. To win, be the first player to reach home. Full instructions are written in English and Spanish and the game itself contains no text, making it a great bilingual or ESL game. For 2-5 players, ages 6-AD. Unfolded game board measures 22 x 7 5/8. ~ Ruth

Publisher Description:

Few things bring smiles to our faces like the childhood memories of playing outside in the summer between dinner and bedtime. There's something about that magical hour that gets at the core of what it is to feel freedom as a kid. Game inventor Jeff Johnston beautifully captures this essence in this elegantly balanced game that evokes both a sense the magical (firefly-powered flashlights!) and the exhilaration of running around in the backyard playing hide-and-seek in the dark.

Get ready for a backyard dash-through-the-dark in this game of firefly-powered flashlight freeze tag! First, catch fireflies to power up your flashlight. Then shine it on other players before they sneak back to home base. All along, watch out for bats, raccoons, and other nighttime critters that are out to trip up your tracks. Be the first to reach home and you've outshined the competition!
