Fairy Tale Spinning Game Review by Charlotte Gochnauer

2015 Van Buren Avenue
Indian Trail, NC 28079

This fun game from Eeboo is a great way to get the imaginative juices in your child flowing. Meant for two to four players, the game involves whirling a spinner and then taking turns collecting one item from each of seven categories: a place, a hero, a rival, a magical helper, a magical object, transportation, and a treasure. Then the players use these different elements to tell a story. Each time the game is played, different items are selected, so the story telling options are endless.

The colorful game board and pieces included are of very sturdy material. Some of the characters used are a cave, king, rowboat, magic potion, and giant ogre. The game is recommended for ages 5 and up, and my younger children enjoyed playing it. I found it to be a fun way to get them to verbalize a story and a great way to build their imagination.
