Quick Take: 1 player games are such a fun concept and I love them for a child who wants to figure out puzzle/brain teasers on their own or with the help of a parent or grandparent. There are a couple game companies that make a bunch of these and the few I've tried have all been winners. I love how this comes with a little booklet of 80 different challenges of varying difficulty so you can make the game as easy or complex as you like. 


How to Play: Go through the booklet, pick a challenge and try to solve it in a way where no red and green dinosaurs are on the same piece of land together. Keep the prey away from the predators!

Variations: The booklet has the answers to all the challenges in the back. If your child is getting frustrated you can put one or two pieces in the correct spots and have them take it from there.
