My boys love games, but at 3 and 4 years old there are not too many games that are fun for them and us as parents. “Buck, Buck, Moose! is a game though that I don’t mind playing with the kids!
Buck, Buck, Moose! Game
Buck, Buck, MOOSE! Take turns dealing cards featuring Buck the Forest Ranger and his pokey pal Moose. Get a “Buck” card and do nothing… get a colored “Moose” card and race the other players to slap the stack of cards with the matching color. Get there first and you win the card! The player with the most cards at the end of the game wins! Fast-action, color-matching forest fun!
- 46 Buck, Buck Moose playing cards in secret dealer container
- 80 slapping cards
- Bonus memory game play
The objective of the game is to be the person wit the most cards at the end of the game, so it is a fast-play game. We typically play a little slower since my boys are young and it takes them a little bit for it to click for them. My favorite part of this game though is that it comes with a sturdy cardboard box (not one that will fall apart easily) and even cardboard holders for the cards. Everything stays nice and organized in the box and ready for playing next time!
The colored Moose cards are placed in four piles according to colors and then a dealer passes a Buck/Moose card to each player. As the dealer deals he has to say “Buck” or “Moose.” When a Moose card is dealt each player has to rush to slap the right colors pile and then they win that card. It is pretty easy enough and teaches colors, speed, decision-making, competition and more! There are also other cards thrown in that could be dealt out including a “Loose a Moose” card, “Win a Moose,” and “Double Moose.” Once all the Buck/Moose cards have been dealt out, players count their card (yeah for learning to count too!) and the player with the most cards win. There are also instructions for more advanced gameplay.
You can also play the game as a simple matching game (great for young players) by flipping the cards over and matching the moose poses! This game is really versatile and fun! The box is also small enough to keep in the car to take on-the-go (like to grandma and grandpas or vacation!)
