Walls & Warriors
The most popular game at home school conferences, Troy, has been so vastly improved that they had to rename it. But at its core, the principle of the new Walls & Warriors remains the same - place the four walls on the game board so that all the blue knights are inside the enclosure and all the red knights are on the outside. But instead of defending an ancient city, you now have to defend a castle. The knights are more detailed and more stable, the walls are bigger and easier to handle, and with 80 challenges instead of the former 60, there was space to add a few easier challenges that include hints. However, there is always only one correct solution, which can be found at the back of the challenge booklet. For ages 8 to adult.
Game Type: Puzzle Game
Age Recommendation: 8 to adult
CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
My son choose this over many other games. He absolutely loves this. He has played with it as intended and even used it to create his own game.
This one is challenging until you get the hang on it. My 9-12 yr olds can’t get past the easy level. We incorporated it into our medieval study.
I purchased Walls and Warriors to go along with our study of The Middle Ages. I like it because the concept is quite different from other thinking games we already had. My son has done some of the challenges and enjoys them. He also likes doing his own imaginary play with the pieces.
I purchased this to use as something to inject more "fun" into my son's school day in the fall, but we couldn't wait to get into it! He and I have worked several of the challenges, and it is more difficult than it seems. Really made us think! This is a great thinking skills addition to our homeschool, and just plain fun! The fact that it's knights and castles makes it that much more enjoyable. :)
