At BlogOn Xmas I stumbled over University Games and got caught up in a game of Staccups! I enjoyed it so much that the lovely people of University Games sent me a copy to play with the family. They also sent me a copy of the 5 Second Rule game – look out for the post coming soon.
The games sees you race against your opponent to stack your colour co-ordinated cups! Each cup has a base colour and a top colour. The simple premise is that you have to stack your cups by matching the base colour of your cup to the top colour of the previously stacked cup. Whoever gets rid of their cups first wins!
We’ve played it with the girls but they don’t quite get the concept – they’re only 3.5 and 2 so a bit young. The game is designed for ages 8+. I’m not sure if that’s right, it might work with younger kids as it’s an easy enough concept to understand.
But if you’re playing it with little ones, then you may have to slow the pace down. It’s such a fast-paced game! I find myself getting into a flurry so easily! But it’s super fun and highly competitive!
It’s certainly going to be a winner for family gaming and ideal for Christmas. The game retails at around £19.99. If you want to get your hands on this game then it can be found at all good retailers including Amazon(*), Argos and Smyths Toys.
