about our reviews:
All reviews at Edutaining Kids are independent and impartial. Our children's toy reviews are designed to help parents and caregivers find the right games for their kids. Evaluations and ratings are based on educational and entertainment value, age appropriate content, replay value, and innovativeness.
While in the original Tripoley game, adults play variations of Poker, Rummy, and Hearts, Tripoley for Kids incorporates Go Fish!, Snap, and War into one satisfying game. The three classic games are tied together through a system of chips and a game board. Sounds too lengthy? It isn't. Besides the usual jacks, two's, and the like, In the colorful deck of playing cards there are Stop cards that halt play. In the case of Snap and War, when a Stop card is turned over, that portion of the game ends. With Go Fish!, players get to use the Stop card when they feel like it. 

The object of the game is to win as many chips as possible. Chips are arranged on the game board so that when players, for example, make a "book" in Go Fish (get 4 of the same card, such as 4 jacks), they win the chips that are found on the jacks space on the game board.

The game is flexible enough to be played with different rules, if desired. For example, players might elect to play a longer game by playing each of the sub-games twice instead of once.

Tripoley for Kids is a great way to introduce kids to three classic and fun games, if they need the introduction! The cards, game board, and chips sport kid-friendly colors and designs, and gameplay is downright fun. The game can be played with 2 to 6 players and makes a fantastic rainy day activity. Kids will turn to the game time and time again.
