Product Review: R & R Games Flea Circus!

We love games at our house-especially games that the entire family can play.  When R & R Games Flea Circus arrived at our house, it was quickly opened up to be played!  Here is the description from the box:

"Step right up!  Calling all cats and dogs!  The flea circus is about the begin!  It's a wild time under the Big-Top as dogs and cats race from one show to the next!  Players use their best Flea cards to attract the most dogs and cats.  Play your cards right and you can steal the audience away from your neighbor! But watch out for the Animal Catcher-he'll snatch your cats and dogs away! With all this excitement...how's a Flea Ring Circus supposed to keep up!  When all the dogs and cats are gone, whoever ends up with the most animals at their show wins the game!"

Doesn't that sound fun?  Included in the Flea Circus box is 55 Amazing Flea cards, 20 plastic cats, 20 plastic dogs, and the instructions.  Everything is very sturdy and colorful, and the size of the box would make it a great game to take along for a trip.  The little blue dogs and white cats are simply adorable!

The first two or three times we played Flea Circus, we had to refer to the instructions often to look up point values for some of the Flea cards, but we quickly got the hang of it.  I love that this game is quick to play-10 to 15 minutes only, and the math practice makes it educational!  With my animal-crazy son Chad, 8, the dogs and cats are his favorite part of the game.  Even if he doesn't have someone to play the game with him, he likes to line them up, stack them, and just play with them!!  A word of warning: Puppies love Flea Circus too!!  So if you want those cute little dogs and cats to not disappear, keep them out of your puppy's reach!!

Flea Circus is for 2-6 players, ages 6 and up, and retails for $15.95 at the R & R Games Website..  R & R Games is offering my readers a 20% discount-just use the coupon code CREW20!  Do you want to read what other TOS crewmembers thought of Flea Circus?  Click here
