I (Jeni) checked out Thinkfun’s newest games: Shadows in the Forest, Cat Crimes and Laser Chess. The names of these games were totally intriguing…..shadows?  Cats?  Lasers?  Oh, yes.  ThinkFun has outdone themselves again, that’s for sure! These games are totally unique, and absolutely addicting!

Shadows in the Forest: “Play in the Dark” Strategy Game

Hunker down in a backyard tent or under a fort of blankets because when the lights go out, the fun begins! Shadowlings – scattered across the forest, hiding in the shadows – must all work together to meet under the same tree to defeat the light. One player is the lantern and tries to freeze the “Shadowlings” or other players by casting the light among a forest of trees to reveal their whereabouts. As the light moves, so do the shadows – allowing the Shadowlings to hide among the trees. If the light freezes all the Shadowlings, it wins. If all the Shadowlings make it to the same tree, they win.

Cat Crimes: Who’s to Blame Logic Game

A “ThinkFun-ized” whodunnit game with humor, rich illustrations and fun theme because let’s face it, cats are cool! Tangled yarn and a missing bird… which of the six furry friends was responsible for each Cat Crime? With a little problem solving you’ll be able to use paw prints, toy placement and other clues to figure out exactly where each Cat was sitting at the time of the crime. Starts out easy and then, levels up to expert to challenge even the dog-loving dad at home.
