Matching the tiles with Square Up! Product Review

By | September 29, 2013

One of the challenges I face as parent to two autistic children is getting them away from tablets and consoles and participating in game-play.

If the game encourages interaction, turn taking and creativity, then so much the better.

We’ve been looking at games that meet the above recently and were pleased when The Green Board Game Co http://www.greenboardgames.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&filter_name=Square%20up&product_id=264 sent up a copy of Square Up! to play.

The game is described as a "shaking, sliding, matching game" with the objective of being "the first to slide your tiles so that the nine central tiles match exactly the pattern in your cube shaker".

The instructions were very clear and D especially enjoyed giving the cube shaker a good shake to start the game.

The tiles have a fingertip-sized indent for ease of movement and they were reminiscent of Rubik’s cubes as they moved around. Don’t be tempted to physically take the tiles out!

The winner is the first person to match the pattern in the cube shaker with the nine central tiles in the tray. We tried this individually and working in teams of two, good interactive fun both times. The game can also be played as a single player too.
