Summer is finally here...Yippie!!!! Now the real fun can begin -- including camp outs in the backyard, as well as family game nights that can last longer into the night, as there is no school the next day.  :-)  I wanted to share a fun new matching game from Laurence King that released today and is sure to make for a fun game night for your family.  I know this for a fact :-) as I was sent a copy of the game to try out with my family, and it was an instant hit.

My girls, who animal lovers and fans of matching games couldn't stop playing this matching card game.  Even after our weekly game night ended, they were quick to pull out this game, which comes in a nice sturdy box to hold all 57 ocean-themed spot and match card, and play it whenever they found themselves with free time and wanting something fun to do.

We have only had this game for a short time, but it is a must play in our house each and every family game night. And, because it comes in a nice storage box, it is easy to pack and bring on family trips, camping, or even to the beach.

Here is more about this super fun spot and match game from Laurence King, which is a definite must have for animal and sea creature lovers, ages 4+...

"Pick a card, any card! Now pick another. Between any animal and ocean card there will only ever be one animal that features on both.

Caroline Selmes's illustrations are so stunning.  I found myself lingering with each turn, just to admire the playful and oh so colorful ocean scenes.  She did an amazing job at capturing the details of each of the sea creatures, and this truly made playing this matching game with my girls that much more enjoyable.  We found ourselves talking about past trips to the beach and ocean and some of the sea creatures depicted on the matching cards during our exploring, and how this summer we hope to go back to the shoreline and ocean and see more.

Who knew that game night could be so enjoyable with just a matching game.  I like how this game includes a "spot the sea creature" aspect to game, instead of simply trying to match cards or ask for a card from another player's hand.

I think this is what has made this a fun game to play as a family, as well as one the girls like to play on their own together.  The rules of the game are easy to explain even to the youngest of players. And, once you get going with the game, you will want to play again and again.
