If you or your kids love simple strategy games you’ll love Nowhere To Go by Educational Insights! It comes with the game “board”, 2 secret spies, an instructional guide and 40 bridge blockers. The game stores perfectly in the box as do all of the pieces.
The game itself is pretty simply explained. Each player has a spy which starts on the raised levels on the outskirts of the “board”. Each player can then place 5 blockers anywhere they choose (without blocking in their opponent). The blockers easily sit on the “board” without falling off. Players then take turns moving their spy man across any bridge that isn’t blocked as well as adding one blocker on a bridge of their choice. The first person to trap their opponent wins the game!
This is a 2 player game geared for ages 8+. My husband and I loved playing this game!! It is one of those games that when you finish playing you want to play again right away! The pieces are durable and the box it comes in is very sturdy as well. This simple strategy game is great for introducing higher level thinking skills for kids. It’s a fantastic introduction into strategy games as it does not have a complex set of rules. It will also make a great addition for my husband’s classroom as well! Another reason it’s great for a classroom because you don’t have to talk during the game so the kids playing will not interrupt anyone else.
