This one, “Grief Zu” in German, “Grab It” in English is fun for younger players. Adults joining in will have to slow down a little.
There are 24 wooden tiles (images are printed and lacquered on to last – not like glued on paper which peels off quickly) and four dice, each side of which depicts a very simplified, silhouette image of one of the tiles.
Players take turns throwing the dice, then all players try to be the first to find and grab the matching tiles. The player with the most tiles wins.
Adults will find this boring, but little ones really seem to enjoy it. Plus it is built to survive a lot of play.
Another great thing is that the picture tiles can be used for sorting or story-telling activities too!
