Lion in My Way
Lion in My Way
Storytelling is the most effortless way to expand your young child’s vocabulary, comprehension, listening skills, and memory. Lion in My Way does that and more by also developing your child’s creative thinking and problem-solving skills.
To begin, select a large path card depicting an obstruction. Then, each player considers how one of the randomly drawn tool cards he has could help him navigate the obstacle and safely arrive home. Will he use a pogo stick to jump over the lion, a rope to scale a wall, or bubbles to distract a troll?
Lion in My Way is optimal as a cooperative game, so children just beginning to tell stories and skilled wordsmiths alike can play without the pressure of competition. As parents, don’t hesitate to use the Lion in My Way stories you tell to reiterate family values, as well as to introduce unfamiliar vocabulary, situations, places, and characters. If you have a tenderhearted child, some obstacles (barbed wire or troll) or tool cards (fireworks) may need to be set aside for a season.
With 25 path cards and 100 tool cards, Lion in My Way is a game that will give your family hours of creative fun. Winner of the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award 2018. For 2-5 players.
From the Manufacturer:
ROAR! How would you get past a lion? Would you float over him with a balloon or offer him a cookie? Lion in My Way is a journey along a path of hazards and barriers which are overcome by the collective cleverness of the players. Armed with the unlikely tools they are dealt, imagination and some silliness, players cooperate creatively to innovate solutions that let them get home together.

”I feel this game does an excellent job in touching on real, practical things in life, while also incorporating silly and imaginative situations for a lighthearted twist.”Read the Review
My kids did not like this game at all. They thought it was boring and would much rather make up their own stories without the cards. There are a lot of great reviews here though so maybe it is just us.
This game is fun for the whole family! It’s easy enough my kids can play it without my assistance if they want.
My family has been having a game night every week and this game is guaranteed to make an appearance. We change the rules a little since the children are 2 and 4 year olds, but they love it. They've played it on their own a few times as well.
Good job Timberdoodle finding a game that appeals to 2 to 99 year olds!
I was skeptical of this one, but once we played it once, it all made sense. This game is perfect for working on their problem solving skills in a fun and engaging way. The only tricky part for me was that it didn't necessarily have to make practical sense when they are solving the problem. This I think is just a personal problem for me and worked perfectly for how my 3 year old thinks. SUCH A GREAT GAME!
Hands down, this game wins the school year at our house. I was shocked at how much my kids loved this game. It engages both my 5 and 9 year old....and even my husband! This will be on our family game shelf for years to come. The cards are durable and can handle some wear. Good thing - because we play this nearly every week! If you have kiddos that love crazy stories, Mad Libs and the like, get this!
