Build a grand fireworks finale with the help of your team mates! This cooperative card game requires players to work together to build and launch fireworks in the correct order. The set includes 60 cards with illustrations of fireworks; the fireworks are depicted with different colors and point values. To build the fireworks display: 1) there can be only one firework of each color; and 2) the cards for a firework must be placed in rising order (1, 2, 3, 4 and finally 5). So, what's the twist? Players do not look at their own cards to play; instead, they look at the cards of their team mates and share information about what they see. It will take a lot of team work to build a dazzling display before time runs out (watch out for those fuse tokens!) 2-5 players.
Our family has long enjoyed playing co-operative games from Family Pastimes. We play competitive ones, too, but enjoy fostering team spirit as we all work toward achieving a goal. If you haven't tried this alternative to playing together, here's an assortment of some of our favorites from this company.
