Living Green With Jerinda: Speedeebee! . . . a Fun Party Game to Play on Earth Day

Thank you to Blue Orange Games for providing a complimentary product sample for us to base this review upon. All opinions expressed are my own.

If you’re looking for a fun and fast-paced game to play with your family on Earth Day or any other day of the year, Blue Orange Games, winner of the first ever Dr. Toy Green Company Award, has come out with another sure-favorite game for 2 to 6 players called Speedeebee!. Be the brightest bee in the bunch and you could win this entertaining game, a recipient of the Teacher's Choice Award.

Speedeebee! contains 50 cards with the different challenges on each, 4 colored dice, and instructions all packed up compactly into a round tin. First you roll the dice to find out your challenge then you complete the challenge based on its instructions. For example, “Name a game containing none of these letters (throw all 4 dice).” Whichever player finishes the challenge first, wins that card. The player with the most cards at the end, wins!

This is a great family game! It is designated for ages 8 and up, but my 6 year old can play pretty well since he can read some. Some of the challenges are a bit difficult for him, but over all he can complete most. He loves playing it and using his brain to try to beat us, which he succeeds at sometimes. We all love playing this game together and it requires cognitive speed, a vast vocabulary, and good reaction time so it really gets us thinking. I also love that it’s easy to set up and stores away very neatly so we can even take it on-the-go. If you love to play games that make you and your family think, Speedeebee! would be great for you!
