Summer Fun Game Night: Lil’ Lemonade Standoff

    We were sent this product for review purposes. As always opinions are honest and solely those of myself and JustaBXgirl.

    Ever dream of running your own lemonade stand?  Worried about drinking all of your product?  Don’t actually have a front yard to set one up on?  Worried about how to handle business permits as a child?  Not to worry!  Learning resources Lil’ Lemonade Stand-Off has you covered.  All of the fun of having a real lemonade stand without any of the worries.  Oh, you also get to make money and compete against your friends and family!

    Which color lemonade stand would you have?

    We play board games pretty regularly.  At the tender age of four JustaBXgirl has even mastered playing 2+ player games alone by using dolls as her opponents.  I did the same when I was a child!  #OnlyChildProblems.  But don’t worry you don’t have to play alone.  The game is designed for 2 – 4 players but let me tell you we played with partners a few times and that was so much fun (and a bit frustrating).  Lil Lemonade Stand-Off is a memory matching game.

    Once each player (team) has their lemonade stand set up the game play begins.  The first player plucks from the deck of cards sitting in the middle and finds out their lemonade order.  They have to memorize the card and place the lemonade cups in order on the tray.  Sounds easy enough, right?  Well, some puzzles only use a few cups and others use them all!  And since the cards are shuffled and placed face down you have no idea the difficulty level on your next turn.  Good thing hard work is rewarded.  Matching the order on the card will earn you 1 – 3 coins.  The person with the most cards at the end is the winner!!!

    Since JustaBXgirl is only four I give her the opportunity to look at the card more than once.  Don’t you know this child has beat me fair and square a few times of the game.  Her cousin wasn’t as nice and only let her look once.  They played twice.  He won once and she won once.  Not too bad when you’re four going up against an eight year old.

    I like the idea that you don’t know if you’re going to get a simple puzzle or a difficult one until you pluck the card.  I feel like it leads to less anxiety that building up from the easiest to the most difficult.  JustaBXgirl however might not agree with me.  She is known to put on a performance of her nervousness, complete with fake nail biting.  I’m continuously telling her she’s just like guacamole…always extra.

    Not quite!

    I love that this game is a great way to get the brain muscles working without feeling like it’s real work.  My eight year old nephew is not into learning games AT ALL.  Anything that he can tell is a puzzle of sorts he’s like, “nope, not for me.  No thank you.  Not even Minecraft!”  He likes this game!  Yup, he hasn’t realized yet that it’s really more about recreating the puzzles from memory than beating the other player.

    I won’t tell him if you don’t.  I also really enjoy listening to JustaBXgirl play this one against her doll friends because I know it means she will be doing more of the puzzles.  Now, don’t get me wrong.  She likes to learn.  BUT if I sat her down with regular shapes and said recreate these puzzles from memory she would probably do about 5 before she decided it no longer was of interest to her.  Playing the game with her dolls?  She will play the game at least twice.

    And since at the end of the game you have to tally up your earnings this game is also helping her with her counting skills.  Still looking for tips to get her to stop skipping 14 and fifteen when counting.

    And since sharing is caring our friends at Learning Resources will be sending one of you your very own Lil Lemonade Stand-Off.
