Aquarius Card Game

I'm a big fan of "game night," and here is a game that has rules adaptable for kids as young as three years old. The ThinkGeek description calls it a "hippie version of dominoes", and I admit that the bright colors are a lot more striking than the black and white of regular dominoes! The "Element" cards have artwork of earth, air, fire, water, and space, and each player (up to five) has an assigned element that they have to match cards to. For kids 3-5, you play a simple version just matching up elements; for kids 5-6 you use the "goals" and "elements" but no action cards; and for older players you add action cards. I like that the game seems so flexible, and that families with kids covering a wide age range can still play together.

What: Aquarius Card Game
How much (as of today's post): $14.99 (plus shipping)
