Peaceable Kingdom Stone Soup Game Review!

I recently discovered a company called Peaceable Kingdom, and I absolutely LOVE them! They make wonderful products for kids, products that are fun and fresh, but also educational! 

We got to review the Stone Soup Game from Peaceable Kingdom! I was so excited to review this game, since it was the first Cooperative Game that I have ever seen. I was really interested in this kind of game, since it means that everyone either wins together or loses together.. This is great, no fighting! 

Here's how it works: 
From the classic tale of cooperation comes this simple game where players work together to “cook” a soup by making matches of ingredients. Match all of the ingredients before the fire under the kettle goes out and everyone wins! Turn all cards face down on the board. Players take turns turning 2 cards face up. If they match, place the 2 cards in the kettle area of the board. If they do not match, turn them face down. If a player turns a Fire Out card face up, the Fire Out card is placed on the fire area. If 10 Fire Out cards are placed in the fire area before all 12 matches are made, players lose. But wait, there is 1 magic stone card that can turn any Fire Out card face down again on the board. Players decide together when to use the magic stone card to help keep the soup cooking!
 
 
We have really enjoyed playing this game! I can't wait til Bean is big enough for both of them to play together! I love that it is not an "I Win, You Lose" kind of game, but instead a way to encourage teamwork and patience.. Just what my guys need!
