TOS Review - Flea Circus - R&R Games

Game: Reiner Knizia's Flea Circus
Publisher:  R & R Games
Where to buy:
For 2-6 players, ages 6 and up
Price:  $15.95

Overview (from the RnR Games website):
STEP RIGHT UP! Calling all Cats and Dogs! The Flea Circus is about to begin!
It's a wild time under the Big Top as dogs and cats race from one show to the next. Players use their best Flea Circus acts to attract the most cats and dogs. Play your cards right and you can steal the audience away from your neighbor! But watch out for the Animal Catcher... He'll snatch your cats and dogs away!
With all this excitement, how's a Flea Ring Circus supposed to keep up? When all the cats and dogs are gone, whoever ends up with the most animals at their show wins the game!

My Musings:
Oh, my, do we enjoy this game...and we have played it more times than I can count since receiving it just a few weeks ago.  The object of the game is to collect as many dogs and cats to come to your flea circus while avoiding the Animal Catcher and your opponent's sneaky fingers when they get a "ticket" card.  (Maybe that may just be MY opponent's sneaky fingers...and card hiding under the leg skills.  Little worried about her natural cheating abilities.  Guess "thou shalt not cheat" needs to be added to our character studies, but I digress.) This is not only a fun game to play, but it covers multiple math concepts:  addition, subtraction, one to one counting, and skip counting and the kiddos don't even realize it.  Fun and, win!  We have another product from RnR (the Hide and Seek Safari - awesome!), so I knew the great quality of their items.  This game did not disappoint.
