I bought this great bluffing game to play with my siblings. My 3yr old daughter loved the art but I was hesitant to teach her the art of bluffing at such a tender age. She was however very persistent in asking to play it. Instead of the usual memory game, I came up with this variant which she enjoyed immensely.
1. Shuffle all cards into 1 deck and place it face down between the players.
2. The first player guesses the top card and reveals it. If correct, the player places the card face up in front of him. If wrong, put the card into the discard pile.
3. The next player on the left takes his turn, repeating step 2.
4. Once all cards have been revealed, the player with the lowest number of cards is the loser (or the player with most cards is the winner).
The back of the card helps young players to guess as it shows all 8 creatures possible.
In 2 games, I drew the first game with her 4-4 and lost the second game to her 2-5.
