Speedeebee! A Fun Way to Have Family Time
Speedeebee is such a game. I really liked it. I played it first with hubs and we had some good chuckles! But the real fun came when my son and my 7 year old grandson played it with me over Easter. It was so much fun and it also gave us a chance to share stories and chat.
There are 4 dice (one each of red, green, purple and blue) with letters instead of dots, and 50 cards. Basically you roll the dice as instructed on the top card. Each card has 3 choices of "challenges" and the person taking their turn chooses which challenge to read to the players. He or she then throws the number of dice instructed on the challenge question and reads the question. The first player to yell out a correct answer, takes the card. The player with the most cards at the end of the game wins.
Name something you could find in a kitchen that contains this letter. Throw one die
Name something associated with winter, starting with one of these letters. Throw all four dice
Name a word containing the blue letter but NOT containing the other three. Throw all four dice.
When my 10 year old granddaughter saw us playing she joined in and so did her mother, so it became quite lively and loud at that point. All in all Speedeebee is a really good fun game which encourages memory, quick reactions, thinking and interacting with others.
Disclosure: I was sent a free game for review purposes but my opinions are entirely my own.
