Ogres & Elves Cooperative Game ... a 3-in-1 fantasy strategy game the whole family will enjoy.
A family favourite! In true cooperative game style, Ogres & Elves is an interactive and challenging game that requires players to work together, cooperate and strategize with one another, in order to succeed as a team. This cooperative game has one of our favourite story lines, with it's fantasy concept enjoyed by children of all ages.
Parents love that Ogres & Elves grows with the family. It includes three sets of game rules for all ages - three games in one box! Each set of rules builds on the previous game, and increase in difficulty based on age (ages 5-7, ages 7-12, and ages 12+), making it suitable for ages 5 and up. Younger children can play the game with an older teammate as well, making this game great for the whole family.
A tip from the Parenting By Nature family - while this game has 3 sets of rules designed for young children through adult, we've found playing the "easy" game just as much fun as the more challenging version. Starting out, we actually found it best to play the easy game first, while we were getting to know the rules. This is by far one of our favourite games because the whole family of varying ages can enjoy it!
Storyline & Cooperative Game Concept
In the game, the Royal Elf Family is coming to visit their Mountain Kingdom. They want the Elves (players) to fill their treasure chests with various gems they are mining. However, Ogres have heard about the visit and plan to grab all the valuables for themselves. Work together to get Royals & Ogres alike to share the goodies. Easy to say, but not as easy to do!
This game requires lots of tricky teamwork with three varying play options, each increasing in difficulty. It promotes teamwork, communication, strategizing, sharing, and even taking care of others. The object of the game is to collect as many gems as possible before the Ogres steal them, and deliver them to the castle. In doing so, you can also "gift" the gems to the Ogres to gain more points. Your challenge is to get the maximum number of points per game, working together as a team.
