Description


Mermaid Island Cooperative Board Game. A spin-and-move adventure game for girls.


How to Play:

Watch out, Mermaids! The Sea Witch is on the move! The object of the game is to move all 3 mermaids from start to Mermaid Island before the Sea Witch gets there. Because Mermaid Island is a cooperative game players play any of the mermaid tokens - no one player has a single mermaid she is trying to get back to the island. Players take turns spinning the spinner and moving a mermaid or the Sea Witch. Mermaids move 1 or 2 spaces at a time and can take the bridge short cuts. The Sea Witch moves only 1 space at a time and always goes the long way around. If the Sea Witch lands on a mermaid, the mermaid must go back to start. But mermaids can collect wand tokens which move the Sea Witch back one space. Players decide together when to use the wands and which mermaids to move to keep the mermaids going. Looks deceptively simple, but is a lively and strategic game of chase!

Why families love this item:

The tension builds as the Sea Witch gets closer to Mermaid Island. But everyone is working together against the common obstacle of the Sea Witch so no one feels left out or left behind. The game structure encourages teamwork and shared decision-making. Players plot their moves for the best outcome while the Sea Witch slowly makes her way around the board. A cooperative game eliminates stress, builds self-esteem, and teaches kids that playing together can be fun! Kids learn to work together, they share in the game play, and they practice cooperation. Help your kids learn at an early age how easy it is to cooperate!

What is a cooperative game?

A cooperative game is a game where all players play together against a common obstacle, not against each other. In a cooperative game no one feels left out and everyone has fun! Peaceable Kingdom 's cooperative board games use familiar game mechanisms - spinning a spinner, matching cards, moving a token, strategizing a win! The difference is that players play together. Playing together helps kids in many ways - they experience shared decision-making, they build self-esteem, they learn to share, to feel compassion, and to work as a team. Playing cooperative games teaches kids to cooperate.
