Quick Take: Every family with small children should own at least one version of Spot it! The game is cheap, portable, it doesn't matter if you lose a few pieces you can still play the game with no problems, and the game is able to be enjoyed for a much longer age range than most games for young children. My children can also play this independently which is a big plus compared to a lot of other games.


How to Play: They have 5 different options for game play in the official rules. The most common way to play is called Twins. All the cards start face-down in a pile and you flip over two cards at a time. Whoever finds the letter match between the two cards (there is only ever one match) wins the two cards. Once the cards in the original pile are gone you see who has collected the most cards. They are the winner! The other options listed in the rules are basically different speed games of varying level of complexity, they include recommended ages for each of the options. 

Variations: For younger children you can go beyond (well, below) the different games listed on the rules and just have the child point at certain colors on each page and cheer for them when they find it and then flip over the next card and do the same thing. Or you can have the kids take turns identifying the matches instead of racing each other. This is great for when a younger child desperately wants to get in on the cool game an older sibling is playing.
