I Spy 3-D

Guest Author - Lynn Little

Players 1 - 4

Ages 5 and up

Playing Time 20 minutes

I Spy 3-D takes the I Spy series of games into a new dimension. Players put on 3-D glasses and search for items in cards. The game comes with 4 3-D glasses, 10 riddle cards, and 40 3-d picture tiles. There are several ways to play I Spy, each with it's own advantages and better for certain age groups.

Players can play a cooperative game where everyone is a winner. Once the picture tiles have been laid in an 8 x 5 grid, the youngest player draws the first riddle card. The rhyming riddle card has a list of items for players to search for in the picture cards. When a player finds an item on a picture card, she removes it from the playing field and makes a stack. Once all items have been found, the next player draws a card. The game is over when all of the picture cards have been picked up.

Competitive play is played the same way except players make separate piles for the picture tiles that they discovered. The winner is the person with the most tiles. Another competitive version of I Spy 3-D called 3-D Draw. Players each draw a card and search for items on their card. They can draw another card once all four items have been found. The person with the most tiles wins the game.

Solitaire I Spy is also possible to play. Just draw a card and find all of the objects. Try finding objects for two cards, then three, etc.

For younger players, the riddle cards have pictures on the other side so kids can see which objects they are looking for. This can be very helpful for parents to show the younger players exactly what items they need to find. It also can serve as a fun learning exercise since some of the objects might not be familiar to younger children.

I Spy 3-D is from the game company Briarpatch and should be especially fun for kids or adults who love hidden object puzzle games. Now all the fun of I Spy is in a simple to learn, easy to play board game.
