Postman Observation Game
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 that are shown. The first one to find the right structure places his letter on it. The first one to deliver all his letters wins.
For an additional challenge, there are harder levels of play. Some cards will ask you to find one or more houses based on a description, and 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.

”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.”Read the Review

” It is such a beautiful game. I love the muted colors and tones and whimsical feel of the houses on the board. This game definitely tests your observation skills as well as your response time.”Read the Review
This game is like I spy: you have to find the house that is shown on the card. I like that it has different leveled cards: the exact house or the houses with the listed characteristics. It makes it easier or more challenging depending on the age of the player so the whole family can play. Also, since the game board is in 8pieces and put together kind of like a puzzle, finding the houses are still challenging because the board is different each time.
We all enjoy playing this game (3, 7, and the parents). It's a great add to our morning basket, as well.
Our boys range in age from 14-4. This game is so visually appealing but also fun for everyone. Even the littlest person loves to play. Only caveat is that my husband is color blind, which puts him at a major disadvantage so something to keep in mind!
We love this game as the entire family can play. Our children are 3 and 7 and the entire family is able to participate. My screen-dependent kids will play this game for hours.
This is one of my daughter’s favorite games. She is almost 5 and is able to play almost all of the levels as long as I explain what some of the cards say. The different color boarders on the cards represent the level of difficulty. The 8 jigsaw board pieces are arranged in any order in the shape of a doughnut and the stack of cards go in the middle. You flip a card and the first person to find the building matching the card’s description gets to put a letter on it. The first person to deliver all their letters ( puts all their letters on the houses) wins. It is a great fast-paced game that is different every time you play. I love it because it hones her observation skills and makes her pay attention to details. We use it as a reward for finishing other less enjoyable activities.
