I recently posted about some of our favorite family board games and Hasbro contacted us to see if we would be interested in reviewing some of their products. They sent over some really great classic games like Operation, Trivial Pursuit, and the Cranium Family Edition.
Tucked in there though was a perfect game for our little children called Noodleboro Pizza Palace that I had not heard of before. This game was a unique game that works on building listening skills through a fun preschool board game.
The concept is simple and straightforward. You can give your kids little plastic pizzas and then you have a deck of cards that you can draw from to pick your toppings for the pizza. Depending on the age of your child, you can pick as many or as few of toppings as you feel they can remember. The toppings you can choose from can be the traditional pizza toppings, but they can also be silly toppings (like a shoe) which is a surefire way to get your children giggling.
For the game, you show your child the cards you have drawn and then you flip them back over so they can’t see them. This is when they look through their box of toppings and find the toppings that you requested and have to remember what you said you wanted for toppings. Listening skills are the focus of the game so you are trying to see if they listened well enough to remember your topping requests.
There are other elements tucked into the game like a story that shows what can go wrong in a pizza palace if people don’t listen. There is also an audio disc that the children can listen to and build on the listening skills focus.
This game is geared towards children between the ages of three to six years old.
Thanks Hasbro for adding your great games to our family nights. We truly believe board games are a great frugal way for families to enjoy time together and can’t wait to spend evenings incorporating your wonderful games in our collection.
