Where's Mr. Wolf? Game
Reminiscent of the cooperative game "Harvest Time," but with a memory aspect, this game pits all players against a hungry wolf. The wolf is prowling the pastures, so players must work together to return all the farm animals to their barn before the wolf gets them! To do this, players take turns flipping over tokens. If the token shows a farm animal, the animal must be returned to one of four barns. Each time a wolf token is turned up, the wolf comes one step closer to the barns, so it's a race to not only discover the farm animals and bring them in for the night, but to also avoid the wolf tokens! Play time is about ten minutes for 1-4 players.
In this cooperative memory game, everyone works together to help all the farm animals get back to their barns before Mr. Wolf arrives but where is he? Keep an eye out for him as you flip over the animal tokens. Every time you find Mr. Wolf, he creeps one space closer, and every time you find a farm animal, help each other remember the barn they below to. Bring all the animals to safety before Mr. Wolf comes around!
The cute animal tokens, 3D barns, and shared goal mean little minds work on memory and teamwork at the same time.
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.
