Our Best Unplugged Travel Game

By , August 14, 2009 7:33 pm

So you don’t think a four piece puzzle could ever present a challenge? Then you have obviously never played Safari Undercover by Educational Insights.

A recent happy find before our last big trip, Safari Undercover is a wonderful logic game!  The goal of the game is simple:  use the four differently shaped pieces to mask out certain wild animals while leaving others exposed according to the challenges illustrated in the booklet.

Sounds easy, doesn’t it?  The challenges are organized from “Starter” to “Master” and most of them really require a lot of thought, even for an adult!

The “Starter” level has hints to get you started if you need them.  After that you are on your own.  Each puzzle has only one answer and the solutions are included in the booklet.

What I like best about the game is that it has only four fairly large pieces and a booklet (not much to lose).  The pieces and booklet store neatly in a drawer under the game’s top.  Perfect for travel.

We played it for hours on the airplane and I was as eager for a turn as my kids were!

The game is also available with pirates.

The recommended age is 7 to 9 years, but I say 7 to 99 years!

PS: This is not a paid review (none of my reviews ever are). I am simply sharing my thoughts about a game that I bought myself and like.

    We just ordered this puzzle/game from an online clearance sale, and picked up the “North Pole Camouflage” game as well (which is similar). We haven’t played them yet but I’m glad to hear you’ve enjoyed this one so much!

    I hope you like “Safari Undercover” as much as we do. I saw “North Pole Camouflage” on Amazon and thought it looked fun too. Please let me know how it is!

    Just wanted to add that we really like this game at home. I had bought it a while ago and recently opened it – my 4.5 year old has mastered the first few levels! Another one we like is called Royal Rescue (not a travel game)

    We’ll have to look for Royal Rescue. I think I saw it on Amazon when I was getting the links for this post. Thanks for the recommendation!

    It’s been awhile since I’ve regularly read here. This game looks like so much fun! I am definitely going to have to pick up one or both for our family! Are you still doing the weekly unplug your kids projects? I just started homeschooling my preschooler, and would love to participate in that weekly roundup!!
