Sometimes, by necessity, family game night devolves into a “kid, you are going to need to entertain yourself” kind of night. After all, we are all busy people juggling many things at once. Yet still, through it all, you want to remain a somewhat conscientious parent and not just let your children plunk themselves in front of a screen for hours on end. What to do? Play Rush Hour Jr! Rush Hour Jr. is a logic game tailored for children ages 6 and up where you are tasked to free the Ice Cream Truck from gridlock traffic.
How to Play
Choose a challenge card, and organize the game board with the plastic vehicles as shown on the card. The challenge cards come in a few different levels of difficulty from easy to expert. Pick your appropriate level.
Slide the vehicles back and forth to create a path for the Ice Cream Truck to get through the gridlock, you cannot jump over the cars and trucks, ice cream trucks don’t fly, silly.
When you clear the path for the Ice Cream Truck to exit the traffic grid, you win the challenge!
The beauty of this game is you can play cooperatively or solo. Just be sure to have some ice cream on hand as you will probably crave it after working hard to free the Ice Cream Truck from traffic jams.
