IMG_7834MURBLES – Recreational Outdoor Game

http://murblegame.com/

On Canada Day, we went in a field near our RV and proceeded to learn and play a new game that I had received for review.   The game is named MURBLES, can be learned in a matter of minutes and played almost anywhere you want.    We found it was a great way to spend time with the kids while we were at our campsite.  And the best is that I can bring it home for them to play in our backyard…

All you need to play this game is a willingness to have fun!  No other skills are necessary.   IMG_7835

My first experience with MURBLES was when I had to pick the colors for our balls.    I was able to pick the colors for the two sets, the point ball as well as our bag.  With twenty colors to picked from you can get overwhelmed.    Our bag is green, with sets of red and yellow and our point ball is dark blue.   If I had to redo the selection, I would avoid taking a darker color for the point ball as it can be tricky to see in the grass…  Nevertheless, the balls and the bag are well made.   The balls are made of recycled product and very durable.   To be honest, having the possibility to pick and choose your own colors make this purchase even more personalized!

After reading the rules and playing for a few minutes my husband immediately commented that it felt like we were playing a modified version of curling…  It did felt like that.   You have a point ball to which you need to get as close as possible with your play balls.   Two set of play balls come in the bag.

The object of the game is to get as close as possible from your point ball.  If you have one ball close to it, you get one point. Two balls will give you two points while three balls provides – you guessed it – three points.   A set is complete when one team has reached 10 points.   A game is won when a player/team won two to three sets.

We had a blast playing with MURBLES and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun game while camping or at home.    MURBLES are a perfect game for family reunions, picnics, camping, the beach or just hanging out in the backyard. And with a family reunion on my mother-in-law side coming in 2013 – yes that far…  She has more than 12 brothers and sisters – all married with kids and grand-kids.   So fun games are planned for that week-end.  I suspect that some downtime will also be schedule in there.   With MURBLES it would be great to connect with other family members.   *GRIN*  By then our kids will be 5, 7, 9 and 12 as well as professionals in MURBLES!

    Hi Isabelle!

    I love your review of Murbles! We have a set too, and the whole family loves to play. :) In fact, sometimes we change the rules a little and combine my sister's set with my set and play a really big game with both families. Fun!
