With all the extra family time we got last year, we’ve played so many fun games and also tried a few new ones. One of them was Ravensburger’s Magna-Tiles® Treasure Hunt.
This game is recommended for children ages 3 and up. It is for 2-4 players, easy to understand, and – big bonus – even younger kids can play the game all by themselves!
If your kids are Magna-Tiles fans and already have a bunch of Magna-Tiles, this game is even better: while the game comes with genuine Magna-Tiles, it can be mixed and matched with other Magna-Tiles sets, which allows you to extend the game or create a whole new game!
The game comes with instructions for the Jungle Treasure game and the Island Race game.
Jungle Treasure game
The Jungle Treasure game is really simple and perfect for the little ones.
The goal is to be the first to collect three golden coins. To do so, you roll the die, move around the board, and collect coins when you land on a space with a Treasure Chest. But watch out! There are two sneaky monkeys, who love golden coins too and steal some of yours if you land on a space with a Sneaky Monkey!
Island Race game
The Island Race has a few more things to remember and takes a little longer than the Jungle Treasure game. It’s still very easy and fun to play.
The goal of the Island Race is to be the first to reach the finish line. Again, you roll the die and move around the board. If you land on a space with a Treasure Chest, you roll the die again. However, there are a couple more obstacles in your way: If you land on a Crocodile, you move back one space! If you land on a Volcano, you can pick another player and move to their space. If you land on a Monkey, you have to act like a monkey!
Add your own Magna-Tiles to extend the race!
Make your own game!
Try making your own game: make a long or short path, change the position of the jungle tiles, make new rules, use dry-erase markers to add your own symbols, build a bridge or a 3D-volcano, create shortcuts, be creative! This works especially well when you add your own Magna-Tiles.
Here are some of the rules we came up with:
Orange: Go back 2 paces.
Red: You’re on fire, start all over!
Green: Move to the next green space.
Purple: Go to jail. To get free, you have to roll a 1.
Yellow: Move back to the previous yellow space.
This is a very versatile game for kids of all ages.
It’s very easy to understand for younger kids and doesn’t require a very long attention span.
For older kids, making up your own game is probably the most fun, it was definitely for us and our 8 and 10 year olds.
