Imported from Spain, Postman Observation Game will test your child’s visual acuity as well as his visual memory and ability to respond quickly. To begin, your child assembles the city however he wishes. Then as each card is turned over, he rushes to locate the correct matching building among the nearly 90 shown. The first one to find the structure places his letter on it. The first one to deliver all his letters wins.
For an additional challenge, there are more complex levels of play. Some cards will ask you to find one or more houses based on a description. Other cards will ask you to find a character’s home, so Postman is a multigenerational game that will grow with your family. And because you can set up the city differently every time you play, Postman stays fresh and entertaining! A beautiful game, Postman, is for 2-6 players, ages 3 and up.
Assemble the board pieces to create a map of the town, assembling in a random order each time to keep the game challenging. Give each player an equal number of letters from the drawstring bag. Shuffle the cards and place them face-down in a stack, to be turned over one at a time.
Once a card with a house pictured on it is turned over, the first player to spot it gets to “deliver” a piece of mail to that house. The first person to deliver all his mail is the winner!

”We have a wide variety of table games in our collection. Some are quite complex and can take hours to play. I like having a few games on hand that are easy to learn, appropriate for a wide range of ages, and just take 15 or 20 minutes to play a round. Postman Observation is one such game.”
