Keep rolling the dice to win! Yamslam is a great family game and is based on poker hands. You  roll the dice and try to get the best combination of numbers and collect the chips before they run out! Whoever has the most chips at the end, wins!

There are chips for 3 of a kind, a flush, large straight, small straight, full house, etc. So Yam Slam is a great learning toy for counting and number combinations.

Easy to learn instructions are included and it comes in a self-contained metal tin, making it a perfect  travel game. The tin makes YamSlam easy to store also.

A colorful matching game, Patchwork is the logical game of strategy that challenges kids to match cards to make 4, 5, or 6-of-a-kind.

The Patchwork Game rules are simple: each player draws 6 cards from the pile, keeping the side of the card that was facing up on the deck facing towards the other players. Then the fun begins!

Patchwork players collect sets of 4, 5, or 6 adjacent cards of the same color and pattern. Sounds easy, BUT in the Patchwork Game, players cards are not always their own because opponents can flip, swap and trade cards with one another when they see something the other player doesn’t!

When a player collects a set of cards, that player must show the other players, set them aside, and draw more cards. The player who collects the most cards is the Patchwork winner. Not an easy feat, for sure!

Patchwork takes about 15 minutes to play and is for 2 to 5 players, ages 5 and up, making this a great, interactive family game.

The Patchwork Game from Knightweaver Games includes:

  • 5 wooden card holders
  • 90 2-sided cards
  • 1 rules sheet
  • A player reference

Patchwork is The Learning Tree Toy Of The Week this week AND it’s 20% off for this week only! Limit 3 at the sale price.
