Magna-Tiles® Treasure Hunt Game [Review + Giveaway] ​


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!
