My kids love playing games. We have a cabinet full and we like to pull them out for family game night. My favorites are games that are easy to understand and that move fairly quickly. Loonacy from Loony Labs definitely fits the bill!
In this super easy to learn card game, players race to be the first one to empty their hand of cards. Each card has two pictures on it. Players have to match one of the pictures on their card to one on a discard pile.
The game can be played by 2-5 players. It’s super easy to set up. You just deal out 7 cards to each player and then start the discard piles. The number of piles is different depending on how many players there are. I played it with my oldest son so we had 4 piles.
Once the game starts, it moves really quickly! there’s no turn taking. Each player just tries to get rid of his or her cards as fast as possible.
It’s so simple and yet so fun! There a so many reasons I love it. First of all, it’s easy enough for the whole family. There are no words on the cards so it’s great even for non-readers or ones who are just beginning. It’s recommended for ages 8 and up but even my 5-year-old caught on quickly. I like that there’s no turn taking. Honestly, it can get boring waiting for everyone to go, especially for younger players. I remember setting up a time limit during a certain word forming game because some people were taking FOREVER to make their moves. With Loonacy, everyone plays at the same time so players stay engaged. This leads me to another huge reason I love the game. It’s fast. Each game only lasted 5-10 minutes. We were able to play as long as we wanted. This makes the game really flexible and great for when you only have a short play time available. Mainly though, I like Loonacy because it’s just plain fun. It brings us together and a family and we have a good time playing.
If you’re look for a fun, family friendly game, Loonacy is definitely for you! It’s available on Amazon for $14.99 and at retailers nationwide.Belinda is a wife, mom, blogger, and Brand Ambassador.
