Everyone loves ‘Bingo the Puppy’™. Unleash this playful pup and watch him bounce, tumble & roll over! Then match his ‘spots’ to a space on your game board and place a chip there. Be the first player with three chips in a row and you win!

Bingo The Puppy Board Game

It is a fun game to play with a 3 year old. Easy to understand rules as you can read from the description of the game above. As with the previous Jax games I reviewed, everything is quality made to last for many enjoyable game times. Visit Jax Games to see this and other terrific games ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ

Polygon is another fun strategy game from Jax. Play your polygon tiles to create a group of three numbers. The numbers determine the score and the player with the highest score at the end of the game wins!

I agree with the age recommendation (7-adult) for the game because chip placement is challenging. A first time “test-run” game is a good idea to learn the rules. Just match numbers and colors and work toward the highest score. This game uses addition and multiplication skills. A calculator is a good idea at the end of the game to add up all those points. 

The game can be played by 2,3, or 4 players. Or maybe play it as a single player to achieve your highest scoring game.

Polygon contains a folding game board, one die, 49 polygon tiles, and 50 score cards. As with all the Jax games that I’ve reviewed, everything is sturdy and attractive. And fun!

CHIPS!

Roll the dice, then take out the matching chip point total. But don’t get stuck with too many points left over, because the player with the lowest point total wins!! It’s FAST and it’s FUN!

My Review: 

This is my family’s favorite Jax game so far because it’s quick, easy and very entertaining!

This ready-to-play game can be stored in any kitchen drawer or living room end table. It’s small enough to fit in a suitcase pocket for a game on the road or in the air. I especially recommend the little game of Chips at a get-together because it can be played with any number of players (2 or more).  The directions aren’t complicated, it doesn’t require serious concentration, and it can be played anywhere there is a small surface for rolling the dice. The game doesn’t interfere with conversation – it compliments the conversation. It’s big fun coming from a little game in a bag.

Also makes a good home school game for reinforcing early math skills since players need to think through all the possible addition combinations which might be used. 

Strategy Note: Eliminate the higher number chips first!

Sequence Num6ers + the family = Fun

The cards have the equations….the game board has the answers. Each card has an addition or subtraction equation. Match a card to it’s correct answer on the board, then place your chip there. Groups of numbers are color-coded to help with number recognition. When you have 5 of your chips in a row, you’ve got a SEQUENCE! Learning math is fun when you play by the numbers… SEQUENCE NUMBERS!

The board has 64 squares with numbers 1-30 appearing 2 times. Use your cards to solve simple addition and subtraction equations and then place a chip on the correct answer on the game board to either build your sequence or to block your opponent. The cards and numbers on the board  are color coded to help with matching problem to answer. The math problems are simple yet some require borrowing and carrying skills.

Plus cards, Minus cards, and Free spaces add to the strategy of the game. This is a wonderful game for everyone in the family. And a great home school game. For 2 to 6 players ages 7 to adult. The game includes the folding game board, playing cards, playing chips and instructions. The complete directions can be viewed on the Jax website.
