Sequence-Fun and Challenging
We were first introduced to the game of Sequence when we visited some friends for a Friday evening get together. There were 6 adults present and we all enjoyed the challenge of the game. With six people we divided into 3 teams with each couple being a team. The men in the group had all been grade school classmates and had known each other for over 60. They were naturally very competitive with each other and this game gave plenty of room for knocking their opponents off the board by blocking their moves and taking their chips.
The basic game is played with a game board, a special deck of cards and sets of colored playing chips. Each team gets a different colored set of chips and a number of cards dealt to them. As the game progresses each person lays a card down and then lays a chip on the corresponding card on the board. The idea is to get 5 chips in a row to form a Sequence. This can be made either vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.
The fun and challenging part comes when a player uses a special Jack to either remove an opponents chip or putting one of their chips in place to block an opponent.
After our first introduction to the game we purchased one of the games for ourselves. This was about 8 years ago and in the years since the game has become one of our favorite board games. I really like that part that it is adaptable for groups of people. For two or three people you play as individuals and after that you play as teams. You can have up to 3 teams with 2, 3 or 4 people on a team.
This game is recommended for ages 7 on up and we have found that it works well to have our younger grandchildren play as one of the team members.
This game is perfect for children who are not quite ready for the regular Sequence game. Instead of playing cards it features cards with different animals. The children get a Sequence by playing 4 matching animals in a row. It is recommended for children ages 4-7, but with help my granddaughters played it starting when they were two. It is a great game for older children to help the younger ones.
A fun game for toddlers and young children.
