Mole Rats in Space Game
Oh no! Snakes have reached the mole rats' space station and the mole rats must escape before they are poisoned! Luckily, they have an escape pod. Unfortunately, the escape pod is 5 levels up in the space station and they must navigate ladders, air shafts, and watch out for snakes to get there. This is a cooperative game; if all the mole rats collect their emergency equipment and reach the escape pod, you win. If a mole rat is lost to snake venom or an air shaft to outer space, or if a snake makes it to the escape pod, or if you run out of time (cards) to reach the escape pod, everyone loses. Players take turns overturning cards and moving mole rats and snakes as directed. No reading required to play, 2-4 players, 20 minutes
Kids band together against the snakes - and the board - to get the Mole Rats to safety.
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.
