NADA! Match, Snatch and Win.
By Blue Orange Games
About the game
There is always a match until…Nada! Scoop up the dice and let ‘em roll. Quick—scan the array for matching symbols between the orange and white dice. The first to call a match collects all the dice showing that symbol. No matches? No problem! It’s another chance to win. Shout “Nada!” to snatch up all the dice. But speak too soon and you’ll pay the price. This dice game has 3 play variations. Think sharp and act fast to match, snatch, and win!
Two colors – orange and white –, thirty-six cute little dice and a travel bag. That’s all it takes to play a game of NADA!.
Mostly geared for ages 7 to adult, you can play with 2 to 4 players for about 10 minutes each times. The game will allow the players to develop skills of focusing, fine motor, visual perception as well as speech/language.
Quick thinking and rapidity are the words that comes to mind when I think of this game. Why? Well it takes both in order to win. You need to be very observant and be able to shout rapidly before your opponents spots the same thing as you.
To play you need to take twelve dice from the bags – six oranges and six whites. Once you have selected the dice, roll them and let them go on the table. At the same time, all players have to search for a symbol appearing on at least one orange and one white die. If you spot a match, you have to be the first to call it in order to collect the points. The points are simple – one point for each dice sporting the image you called… If there is no matches, you need to be the first to shout NADA! and put your hand flat above the dice to collect all the remaining dice. When the dice have all been collected, you can start a new round. After three rounds, the player with the most dice wins!
But wait! that’s not all… There are penalties in this game. If you make a wrong call, roll the dice again and sit out until the start of the next round. If there is a tie and can’t decide who made the first call, you have to roll again. The instruction sheet also suggest two variations of the game as well as a multiple games option.
As a homeschooler, I can see this game being used to provide a break in between two lessons or to simply had some fun time during our homeschool. The game is quick to play and fun at the same time. All the kids can play together and I can be the referee if needed.
This game is also perfect for a trip, camping or when your child goes to camp. It’s a great way to spend with friends and family in order to make memories.
NADA! is available at your favourite toy store, even at amazon.ca and amazon.com.
