Turkey Themed FUN For The WHOLE Family!

Thanksgiving Place Race is a fast action, exciting place value game that the WHOLE FAMILY will love to play together!  We use this for Family game Night and everyone gets excited to see it (even DAD!)  SUPER quick to print and play. Worth every drop of ink!
We Love This Game.

I can’t even tell you how much we love this game.  We pull it out for math time, sure.  It’s all about place value, after all.  We pull it out for Family Game Night.  We pull it out on a rainy day.  We pull it out when friends come to visit.  In fact, this game spends more time OUT of our game cabinet than it does IN!

Why?

Because it’s so fun!  This game is simple enough for young children (they should be able to recognize numerals, so a 3 or 4 year old should do fine) to join in the fun, and sometimes win, and it’s challenging enough that even the adults, who have a better grip on strategy, get really into it.  I always LOVE a game that all ages can play together and this one sure does fit.

How does it work?

Each player gets a mat.  Then the dealer shuffles up the cards and deals them all out to all the players.  Each player takes a turn flipping over their top card and deciding what place value they’d like to put that card down on.  They’ll soon figure out that low numbers are better to play in the ones or tens place and high numbers are better for the hundreds and thousands place.  At the end of 4 turns each, the player who has the highest number wins the round.  You can choose to play until someone wins 5 rounds or whatever number of wins you’re comfortable with.

Thanksgiving Place Race is a Family Game Night game that's truly fun for the WHOLE FAMILY!

Is this a physical or digital game?

Like most things here at Little Learning Lovies, Thanksgiving Place Race is a digital PDF file that YOU get to download immediately and then print right away.  You’ll want to laminate this one for durability (trust me on that!) but it doesn’t take long to cut those cards apart and get playing.

How many people can play?

How many people do you have?  The game has 4 different game boards and is set up to be played by 4 people as it is, but if you have more (like we do!) that’s okay too!  Just print a second set and invite your friends over.  I recommend that you play with a max of 8 to 10 people otherwise the turns take too long and young ones can get bored waiting.  If you have a really big group, you could play in groups and then have the winners of each group play each other!

Where do I get this game!?

Wouldn’t it be fun to pull this out after everyone is all stuffed from too-much-turkey?  Or how about those of you who have overnight guests for the holidays?  Or, how about playing this instead of having math time with your kids?
