Product Description

The POOF-Slinky 0X3823 Ideal Instructures Game is a fast paced, highly interactive race to build wooden block structures against the clock. Instructures is a challenging and competitive game for a variety of ages and skill levels. (2) teams race to build the structure as shown on cards (the blueprints) by only using verbal instructions from another team member (the foreman). The team that correctly completes the structure wins the round and comes closer to winning the game. The game starts by dividing players into (2) construction crews where you pick a Blueprint Manager for the entire game. Each crew will pick a Foreman for each round that looks at the team's Blueprint and begins instructing their crew. When the structure is complete the Foreman shouts "done!" and all construction stops. To determine if you pass or fail, the other crew now performs a building inspection. If you pass, roll the die and move your pawn forward. If you fail, roll the die and move your pawn backward. If the pawn lands on a special space, play the next round in that special way (Silent Challenge, Blind Challenge, Memory Challenge and Clock Challenge). The crew that reaches the "Done!" space first wins. It's a game of see it, say it, build it that will provide hours of entertainment for the whole family. Mensa Select, the High IQ Society, honored this game of Construction by Instruction for excellence as a national competition winner. Ideal's Instructures is designed for 4+ players, measures 9.5-inches by 2.5-inches by 5.75-inches in size and includes (38) wood blocks, (72) sets of blueprints, a gameboard, 60-second timer, die and instructions. The POOF-Slinky 0X3823 Ideal Instructures Wooden Block Construction Game is recommended for children 4-years of age and older. POOF-Slinky is the manufacturer of the world famous Slinky and the top selling POOF foam sport balls in North America. Ideal

Would buy one for myself! 15 Nov 2013

It looked interesting and something other than the regular type of games for children. It was VERY well made and had easy to follow instructions - however, it was NOT easy, it was a challenge and a fun one! It utilizes reading, LISTENING and following directions explicitly. There are various levels of play and my 5 year old grandson, his 8 year old sister, their parents and we, the grandparents, thoroughly enjoyed times of "playing". My evaluation is that it is a wonderful tool of fun while learning a valuable lesson on listening and following directions. I have recommended it to other "grandparents" looking for gifts for grandchildren as well as parents looking for something other than brainless toys. . .and it is not electronic! My daughter, an educator, feels it would be a valuable tool to use in the classroom.

Excellent Alternative to mindless games 27 Dec 2013

The game is made of wood so indestructible and will be an asset to any family of games. The instructions were simple to follow, my 5 year old grand daughter taught me in two minutes. Game is great for young and old. We played yesterday and was a real hit by all ages!
I am buying one now for our mountain home so visitors can play.
Wonderful way to increase vocabulary and learn to give clear instructions. 7 Nov 2013

This is a great game which encourages players to think about what they are trying to say with out help of hand motions, etc. For the younger ones it is challenging to be sure. For the older ones I was amazed how quickly they caught on and improved with each game session.
