Board games are my personal favorite because everyone can participate and can provide hours of fun and camaraderie among family and friends. Some games demand complex game play, others require simple rules. One such game is Sequence by Jax, wherein players aim to place a row of five chips onto a set of cards. While this game of strategy and luck has received glowing reviews among those who have played it, kids age 8 and below may find it to confusing. That is why the company provides a kid-friendly version called Sequence For Kids.
Manufactured and assembled in the United States, this board game brings the joy and excitement Sequence brings for a younger set. Just like the original game, young players place a chip on the mat. The person who has formed four chips in a row wins.
The difference lies on the appearance of Sequence For Kids compared to its much mature counterpart. The card pile features characters like lions, penguins, pandas, and orcas, which corresponds to the same animals placed on the mat. Each player picks a card from the pile and places a token on the appropriate character space on the board. There is also a Unicorn card that enables players to place a chip anywhere on the mat, while the dragon card allows them to remove an opponent’s chip.
Sequence For Kids can accommodate up to four players, the same number of color options available among the playing chips. Recommended for children aged 4 to 6, this board measures 10.5 x 10.5 x 2.2 inches and weighs 2 pounds.
Sequence For Kids is available at Amazon for a listed price of $14.99.
