Protect The Pridelands by Wonder Forge
Protect the Pridelands takes a few minutes to figure out but if you have a young one that always seems to lose to their older sibling it is worth it. Protect the Pridelands is different from other games because everyone works as a team against the bad guys.
The goal of the game is to get Kion to the top of pride rock before the Outlanders get there. Each turn, Outlanders (snakes, vultures, and hyenas) are added to the game board. As a family you work together to strategically banish them and win.
This is a game that the boys want to play over and over again. It has been a great way for my youngest (5) to enjoy a game without feeling defeated by his older brother. We make decisions together on every move and there is no teasing, fighting, or feeling defeated. When we lose (which we do a lot) we lose as a family.
The game is really well made and at $17.99 on Amazon I am more than happy to recommend this game that we play a few times a week and travel with on the weekends. The game is recommended for ages 4+. It is challenging enough to keep adults interested and the team aspect really helps to keep the youngest ones in the family engaged.
