If you know our family, you know we love playing games. I love to be able to start the school day with some fun learning games to get the mind warmed up. Timberdoodle has given us Walls & Warriors to review.
If you remember a few weeks back, we were talking about Color Catch. This is a similar game, a game of logic. It will require thinking to complete each challenge. This is what made me stop and check it out! I love giving my children challenges and making them think with logic.
What Is It
Walls & Warriors is a simple, yet complex game at the same time. You are given starting positions for some of the pieces, and you are required to think of the one correct answer to the problem. This is where the logic comes into play.
Walls & Warriors comes as part of the Timberdoodle 12th Grade Curriculum Kit, but can be used for other ages. Ray Ray is just 12-years-old and has loved this game. What boy doesn’t love a game that requires him from saving the castle from the enemies? Not to mention that mom may love playing it also!
Included with this game are the game board, gamebook with all the challenges, and twelve game pieces. With these pieces, your child will have 80 challenges from starter to wizard. Each level will get a little harder with less help from the gamebook.
How We Used It
Much like Color Catch, we used this as a way to warm up our minds before school. This was a fun way to start our days. Getting our minds warmed up with a fun logic game is a fun way to start the school day. We only needed one or two challenges to be ready for the day.
I have a collection of age-appropriate games that require thinking, logic. We pull these out each day, every child has a game that they pull out when I tell them it is game time. They know that when I tell them it is time to grab a game that they get to have fun before school happens, what they don’t know, they are learning as they are playing the games.
What We Thought Of It
Games are an important part of our homeschool. They take learning and turn it into fun. I love finding games that make our children think. While they think that I am allowing them to play before school, I know that I am turning on their minds and making them think.
This was a fun game, yet the logic and problem-solving skills that went into this game. I could see Ray Ray’s mind busy at work with each new challenge to solve. He is already a very critical thinker, so to see him thinking outside of his normal ways thrilled me!
I would highly recommend Walls & Warriors to add to your homeschool days! You won’t regret it!
