We love the idea of Rings Up; a completely different game to what we've seen before! When we received it we couldn't wait to open it up for a test game, and it slowly became one of the most competitive family games we've come across! Rings Up! is another great fast paced game of observation and agility. Players race to stack different coloured rings based on an order shown by one of the challenge cards.
The game is suitable for ages 6 and up for 2-6 players. A game will last around 10 minutes but can be longer depending on how you wish to play. Are you ready? The race is on!
Rings Up! is a simple game that encourages you to think fast and act...well...faster! The objective of the game is to be the first player to win 7 of the challenges, and therefore obtain 7 of the challenge cards. If you're feeling particularly competitive however, you could always tweak the rules slightly and play until the pile of cards have disappeared, making the player with the most challenge cards the winner overall!
The components of the game are great quality and comprise of 50 beautifully illustrated challenge cards and 48 rings of different colours (12 of each red, green, blue and yellow). Each player recieves two rings of each colour to use. There are a number of modes and variations in this game, so there's always something new to try with this one.
Players take it in turns to choose a challenge card from the top of the pile. It's then a race to build the a stack of rings in the correct order as shown on the card. The game suggests to build the stack on your thumb; when a player thinks they have done it correctly, the rest of the group then needs to verify that their stack is correct. Definitely a fun way to play and the amount of rushing around and pressure can be very competitive!
This is the Classic game mode, but there are other ways to spice things up a bit, including stacking the rings in front of you, or completely mixing up the whole collection of rings on the table for all the players to grab!
We think this is a fantastic game for a number of reasons. It's great for hand-eye coordination, hand dexerity and for those who struggle with concentration and observation. Another one where the more you play the better you get; practice makes perfect! A definite IG thumbs up for this one!
