Peaceable Kingdom Press - Stone Soup Game Review and Giveaway! - CLOSED!


My family loves to play board games together. Sam and Bella sometimes argue over who wins the game and feelings sometimes get hurt. I was very interested to review the Stone Soup Board Game from Peaceable Kingdom Press. This is a cooperative game in which everyone wins or loses together. The object of the game is to finish adding the ingredients to the soup before the fire burns out. It is a memory game with a twist. This was a very fun game for our family to play together. It is also fun for the older daycare kids to play while I am busy preparing lunch!

Peaceable Kingdom Press also has four other great cooperative games! These include:





More about the Stone Soup Board Game and Peaceable Kingdom Press:

How to Play:


From the classic tale of cooperation comes this simple game where players work together to “cook” a soup by making matches of ingredients. Match all of the ingredients before the fire under the kettle goes out and everyone wins! Turn all cards face down on the board. Players take turns turning 2 cards face up. If they match, place the 2 cards in the kettle area of the board. If they do not match, turn them face down. If a player turns a Fire Out card face up, the Fire Out card is placed on the fire area. If 10 Fire Out cards are placed in the fire area before all 12 matches are made, players lose. But wait, there is 1 magic stone card that can turn any Fire Out card face down again on the board. Players decide together when to use the magic stone card to help keep the soup cooking!



Why families love this game:


Unlike most memory matching games Stone Soup encourages kids to help each other find the matches. This way, kids work together, they help each other, and they practice just what the Stone Soup story is all about – cooperation! A cooperative game eliminates stress, builds self-esteem, and teaches kids that playing together can be fun!



What is a cooperative game?


A cooperative game is a game where all players play together against a common obstacle, not against each. In a cooperative game no one feels left out and everyone has fun! Peaceable Kingdom’s cooperative board games use familiar game mechanisms – spinning a spinner, matching cards, moving a token, strategizing a win! The difference is that players play together. Playing together helps kids in many ways – they experience shared decision-making, they build self-esteem, they learn to share, to feel compassion, and to work as team. Playing cooperative games teaches kids to cooperate.
