I have had the opportunity to play with the most amazing game – the OK Play Game!
This is my honest review of the OK Play game
OK Play is a game that can be played by anyone, anywhere. The game is portable so quite suitable to take along to picnics, parks, play areas or other suitable social gatherings. As you can see the game itself is very colourful and attractive which would entice anyone to want to interact with it.
Its quite interesting that the instructions for the game say it is suitable for ages 8 – 122. If you are older than this, please contact the Guinness Book of World Records immediately. Hahaha! Funny right? My humble opinion is that the game is suitable for kids 7 and up.
I think the game helps with cognitive development as it really causes you to think and challenges you to plan your next move whilst also thinking defensively about your opponents next moves. It’s really interesting and a whole lot of fun. So how do you play the game? Well, read on!
The instructions are simple and easy to follow with detailed simple pictures so it is easy for all ages to understand. The game can be played by 2 to 4 players at a time. The idea is that each player is to have a set of coloured pieces (one particular colour for each player). Each player, in turn, tries to strategically place one of his/her playing pieces so that he/she has five pieces of his/her colour in a row. Imagine the fun when everyone is aiming for the same thing!
So after a while, everyone uses all their pieces and no one has five pieces in a row. So is that the end? No! Not by a long stretch of the imagination! The aim then is to carefully remove, in turn, one of your pieces and place it somewhere more strategically with the aim of getting the 5 in a row.
Remember though that everyone else is trying to do the same thing. The only consideration is that you cannot move a piece and leave any piece not touching another piece. More fun and excitement is added when you are busy focusing on the playing pieces of your main rival whilst someone else is getting their 5 pieces all lined up. It’s a whole lot of fun!
It can be very time consuming especially if all the players are particularly adept at playing. I would highly recommend this game for families or friends.
Can you spot the winner of this game? What colour did that player have?
The game, of course, is won when one player manages to outsmart the others and get five of their OK tiles lined up and touching each other.
It was intense fun and I would rate this game a five out of five. Even those who lost enjoyed the game.
