What do you look for in a fun game?
How about easy rules, quick game time, a bit of rush of adrenaline, and, of course, fun playing pieces?
Here is a game my husband and I happened upon during a date night when "plan A" failed, and we found ourselves in Borders looking for a game to play in the adjacent Starbucks. Not knowing a thing about this game, we are glad we picked it up because it immediately became one of our favorites.
It's the Ninja Versus Ninja Game, and you will LOVE it -- so will your kids. It's recommended for ages 8 and up, and it's for 2 players, but teams can work too.
To win, you can either wipe out the other team or gain a certain amount of points in order to secure your Ninja Master.
To get points your ninjas have to cross over into the other teams' dojo -- without being killed. Da da da dum!!!!!
Game play = 15 minutes, but you'll want to play again and again.
And did I mention the fun playing pieces? Even the die are cool!
