Most strategy games can be too complex for young children or become one way to blow more stuff up. There are few classic games that allow kids and adults to play and truly stimulate thinking and strategy, 5 to Win is one of them. 5 to Win is a new strategy game available for download.
Although there are not a lot of flashy graphics, 5 to Win is seamless and allows for competition with the computer at multiple levels, based on the experience and maturity of the player. My kids have played it and love it. When I play it, I find myself being drawn into more games against the computer to try and improve my win rate.
5 to Win involves competing with the computer to be the first to have two 5 chips in a row to win. This involves strategically placing chips on the board and playing the odds of specific cards that will be drawn. There are 4 different levels from beginner to advanced and a new inventor mode, in which the inventor himself could only win 50% of the games. This level of strategy can be addictive, fun and is family oriented.
Both my 12 year old daughter and 8 year old son enjoy playing this game. They find it interesting, fun and challenging. It helps them develop memory and strategy thinking skills. My wife and I also enjoy this wonderful game. 5 To Win is truly a game that the whole family can play. I enjoyed it and I am sure you will too. I found the website informative and was easy to navigate. There is a trial version that was available and it was easy to purchase the game.
The game is cross between the strategy of chess and the fun of checkers or card games. It is easy to learn and within a few minutes you can be playing the game. The games themselves are not too long and keep you interested as you try to figure new lines to create.
I highly recommend 5 to Win as a great strategy game.
