Busytown Cars and Trucks 2.JPG

Quick Take: It's the classic game War, but with Busytown themed oversized cards. This game is ideal for small children who are practicing identifying numbers and counting and adore Busytown or cars or trucks. My 3 year old enjoys looking at all the cards and spreading them all over the house. Perk - the game still plays just as well even if you're missing a couple cards. My 3 year old and 5 year old were excited to play this game on repeat the other day and were really happy about the addition cards, my main complaint is that the game isn't different enough from War.

How to Play: Lay all the cards facedown in a pile. Each player selects a card, whoever has the highest card wins. If you draw a card with a plus sign on it, you get to draw another card and add the total and compare that to the number on the card of your opponent. When the stack of cards is gone you compare who has ended up with the most cards. Whoever has the most is the winner. 

Variations: If you wanted to make the game last for longer and appeal to older ages you could use them as random flashcards to practice addition, subtraction, and multiplication.
