Stop what you are doing and order this game right now if you have younger kids. We have had so much fun tonight with this card game! Clumsy Thief Junior was easy to learn and quick to play. It took just one practice round for us to comprehend the rules and since then, we’ve been finishing games in minutes. Everyone has enjoyed Clumsy Thief Junior, from the 5 year old to the teenagers to the adults!
The concept is very simple. You start off with cards and then make pairs of cards that add up to 10, such as 6 and 4 or 8 and 2. Then once everyone has their pairs down, you can then start playing off everyone else’s stacks and “stealing” their stacks as you play off of them. We laughed and laughed as we snagged stacks from other players.
This games is geared toward ages 5 and up and is marked for 2-4 players. We played with 5 of us and it worked fine, just went a little quicker. Hands down, a new favorite in our house!
Here’s what my 5 year old had to say:
“It was so much fun! I liked the thief and trapping the thief to win all the cards. I can match the fruits and vegetables and make groups of ten!”
