Spot it! is a card game for 2 to 8 players, but can be played with up to 13. Super unlucky number, I know…
Spot It! has 55 circular cards each of which contains eight symbols varying by shape and color. One card will contain all the symbols matching in either shape or color (or both), while the other card will show something different; this is what you are matching.
Spot It! requires speed, observation skills, and pattern recognition to find matches between pairs of cards as quickly as possible and get rid of your hand before everyone else. The winner is the player who gets rid of their cards first and has collected the fewest cards at that point; ties go to the player with more sets.
This card game was created in 2008 by Blue Orange Games, an American game publisher that offers an array of card games, board games, puzzle toys, and party games. The game was the winner of Dr. Toy’s 10 Best Active Play Games Award in 2011, among many other awards.
Spot It! has also earned the Specialty Retailers’ 2012 Game Of The Year Award as well as multiple Teachers’ Choice Awards for its educational value.
Some card games may last up to 30 minutes or so but Spot it! can be finished much faster than that since each hand usually lasts only a few minutes. This card game is perfect for a family night where everyone will have fun matching symbols while competing against one another at the same time!
