Rhino Hero is one of this years must have games with it's awesome 3D card stacking ability putting the fun back into after Christmas dinner games. You'll need a bit of a steady hand but this really is a game for all the family. The game can be played by 2-5 players and have some quick and simple easy to follow instructions for immediate play. Included with this game is 31 roof cards (a.k.a action cards), 28 walls, 1 foundation (a.k.a starting card), 1 Rhino Hero and of course some instructions. Depending on the number of players the game can take between 5-15 minutes to play and it really can be quite addictive.
So what is the game idea? Well you've to build a house of cards, floor by floor, as tall as you can for Rhino Hero. Just like a real house it is made up of walls and ceilings. As you never know how tall it will become the ceilings look like a roof. The marks on the roof determine how the walls of the following floor have to be erected, and the symbols on the roof determine certain building conditions, which might mix things up a bit. The aim of the game is to be the first to have placed one's roof cards i.e. you have none left in your hand.
Before starting to play you need to prepare. You do this by placing the foundation card with either side face up in the centre of the table. The easy side has two wall marks the hard side has one. You then shuffle the roof cards and give out five to every player. If there's only two players then take seven cards each. The remaining roof cards are put in a provision pile away from the foundations. You then get the walls and Rhino Hero ready.
This was a really exciting and fun game to play, it even got quite tense at times but what a laugh everyone had. The more players (up to 5) the better really as it can get competitive and you become quite strategic when you have the right cards. Logan loved this game very much. He had no bother balancing the wall cards, placing the roof or moving Rhino Hero around so I'd definitely recommend for children of his age (7). It's a 5+ game and is surprising cheap at only £6.60 currently on Amazon.
If it's not on your child's Christmas wish list (or yours) then definitely put it on. Or why not enter my giveaway below to be in with a chance of winning a Rhino Hero of your own? Worth a shot.
