Snug as a Bug in a Rug: A Cooperative Game by Peaceable Kingdom
Unlike most games the Snug as a Bug in a Rug cooperative game encourages kids to help each other to beat the game. This way, kids work together, they help each other, and everybody wins! A cooperative game eliminates stress, builds self-esteem, and teaches kids that playing together without competition really is fun!
This great game assists with learning colours, turn-taking, counting, matching, social development and fine motor skills. It is a multi award-winning game, including the 2012 Dr. Toy 10 Best Educational Products and the 2013 Canadian Toy Testing Council Best Bet.
Recommended ages: 3 to 6
Number of players: 2 to 4
Typical length of game: 15 minutes
How to Play:
Get all the little colorful bugs under the rug before the 3 stink bugs stink up the place! Watch closely and make those matches! In Levels 1 and 2, players take turns spinning the spinner, looking for bugs that match both the die and spinner. In Level 1 (ages 3-4), you only roll the die once at the beginning of the game. In Level 2 (ages 4-5), you roll the die on every player’s turn. In Level 3 (ages 5-6), you only use the spinner to find two bugs that match! On all 3 levels, you place a stink bug on the board if you can’t find a matching bug. Make sure you work together to find those matches before all 3 stink bugs are on the board and you all win!
What is a cooperative game?
A cooperative game is a game where all players play together against a common obstacle, not against each other. In a cooperative game no one feels left out and everyone has fun! Peaceable Kingdom’s cooperative board games use familiar game mechanisms – spinning a spinner, matching cards, moving a token, strategising a win! The difference is that players play together. Playing together helps kids in many ways – they experience shared decision-making, they build self-esteem, they learn to share, to feel compassion, and to work as a team. Playing cooperative games teaches kids to think of a team approach and enjoy time together without a focus on competition.
