Make 'N Break Challenge

Publisher: Ravensburger

Ignore the hair brush. I would have staged it differently, but I let my 5-year old handle the photo shoot for this game.

Players: 2-4

Ages: 8+

Make 'N Break Challenge is a fun block building game where the goal is to build the shape on the card, BUT do it faster than your opponent, AND do it with only a giant pair of wooden forceps.

There is a clear card holder which displays the upright, double-sided building card to the dueling players as they are each presented with the same goal and matching sets of building supplies.

The cards vary in difficulty and point value, with the winner of each individual duel collecting the card and points.

My son was very pleased to take this picture of my creation as the top piece was falling off.

My son got a little worked up by the pressure of speed-building something against me. He saw it as inherently unfair since I was older (and by his definition, had more building block towers with tongs-experience).  He does have a point. My motor skills are considerably more developed, as is my experiential knowledge of stacking, friction, balance and chopsticks. He seemed to enjoy playing in more of a free-play mode where he challenged himself (or his imaginary friend, Bududada).

One Zillion Games was provided with a review copy of Make 'N Break Challenge. The fact that a sample copy was provided, in no way influences our opinions of the game.
