Games not only help kids have fun. It can also help them develop certain skills. Not only have that, challenging games helped kids test their brains as well as their senses. In the Juxtabo Game set, kids will try to challenge their skills in thinking fast and in color.
The Juxtabo Game set is a challenging game where kids need to think fast in trying to determine color patterns. The game is all about trying to recreate color patterns. The game consists of round Juxtabo pieces of different colors and challenge cards. Players first need to place different Juxtabo pieces in a 4×4, 5×5 or 6×6 grid. This will serve as the game board. Players are then given seven colored pieces fir the game and a challenge card each.
The objective of the game is for players to stack the colored pieces and match the pattern found in their cards. Each player takes turns stacking their Juxtabo pieces to change the color of the board and try to create the patterns that match their challenge cards. When a player sees a pattern that matches that on his or her challenge card, quickly yelling “Juxtabo” will get the player a point. Players can yell and get a point even if it is not their move yet, just as long as they distinguish their color pattern on the board. But players also need to be careful. If they shout and it turns out that there is no color pattern that matches, they lose a turn. Players keep playing and stacking the pieces and gather points until the Juxtabo pieces all run out. The player who gets the most points during the game wins.
