Easy to play and fun for the entire family, the Ravensburger Make 'N' Break game takes simple building tasks and sets them against the clock for an exciting and engaging showdown. Make 'N' Break's uncomplicated concept and variable levels of difficulty allow it to be enjoyed by builders of all ages, whether it's a rainy day inside with the kids or an after-dinner match for the adults. Combining spatial and logical skills, speed, and a little luck, Make 'N' Break is an exciting and stimulating game with excellent replay value.
Make 'N' Break has a simple concept and easy-to-follow rules, making it easy to pick up and play right out of the box. First, roll the dice to see how much time to put on the timer, draw a game card, and arrange ten multicolored blocks to match the design on the card. Complete the designs on as many cards as you can until the timer runs out, then collect the number of tokens you've earned from your cards--three for difficult designs, two for moderate designs, and one for easy designs. After four rounds, the builder with the most tokens wins.
Because the game cards feature variable difficulty levels, Make 'N' Break can be enjoyed by everyone from children to adults. Although young children will probably be unable to arrange the blocks quickly to the timer, just practicing the arrangements on the cards will help reinforce their logical and spatial reasoning. These fundamental skills are not necessarily ones that adults are guaranteed to excel at above their children, making this an exciting family game where the kids and the adults can compete head to head.
For more experienced players, Make 'N' Break becomes a race against time and requires dexterous fingers and quick reactions. Luck also becomes a factor, with the dice roll determining how much time you receive on the timer to complete your arrangements. Our testers found the replay value of this game to be great--chances are you won't tire of the game after multiple plays, but will continue to get better at it, resulting in fiercer competitions. There is also an alternate set of rules for "expert builders," making the game even more intense.
One timer, 10 building blocks, 80 building cards, 60 counters, and one dice.
