Game Review: Take-Out

Take-Out is another simple but cool game from Marina Games. The other game from them that I reviewed is Skunked. I'm very pleased with both of them.

Take-Out is a numbered dice game for ages 8+ and for 2 or more players. The box contains 10 red numbered dice, 2 white regular dotted dice, a shaker cup, and instructions. The goal is to remove all the red numbered dice for a score of zero (actually, if you accomplish that, you have had a total "take out" and receive a score of -10). When a player reaches 150 points, he/she is eliminated from the game. The game continues until one player is left and that player is the winner.

How to Play (in a nutshell):
1. Roll the 10 red numbered dice. Watch out for blanks; they make the game more challenging.
2. Roll the two white dice. Take out number combinations from the red dice. Repeat by rolling the two white dice again.
3. Avoid getting eliminated.

This game is easy to learn, fun to play, and even educational! It will help your kids with math skills such as addition and subtraction. My family and I enjoyed playing Take-Out. Surprisingly, my 43 year old husband even got into the game (he's competitive by nature :)). However, my youngest boy (9) who came up with a "strategy" won the game :). Check out Take-Out, a shake-and-roll fun!

~ I received this game for free from Marina Games via Family Review Network in exchange for my honest review. My opinions are my own.
