For 2 to 5 players, this is a great card game that helps children understand the food chain. Each card has an animals picture and a point value. The animals are organized by food chain, going from small creatures to big creatures, from spider to man. There are two games in one--Food Chain and Feeding Frenzy. In Food Chain, you play cards on other players' hands and the last player remaining with an uncompleted food chain wins. In Feeding Frenzy, you start by shuffling the cards and dealing five cards to each player. Each player draws a card from the deck, and then plays any one of the numbered animal cards she holds by placing the card face up in the center of the playing area. This is when the feeding frenzy starts. When a card is played, another player can eat it if he has a card or cards that add up to the number just above it in the food chain. An alligator card, No. 6, is played; the player can eat it with a gorilla, No. 7, because the gorilla is above the alligator in the food chain. The trick is that all players are trying to eat the card at the same time. The directions will continue to assist the child and adult players. Once you know the rules of the game, the fun begins. This card set helps children learn about animals and numbers. The cards are well designed and colorful. This is a perfect game to use on travel.
