                Family Pastimes / Snowstorm - A Co-operative Game

                Description: A winter storm hits Little City! Granny and Grandpa, Uncle and Aunt, Mom and Dad and our best friend's family have things to do, places to go, errands to run. Our job is to help them out. We drive the cars, get to the places on their lists, and try return safely home. Deep snow? Bad ice? We decide when and where to do some plowing or spreading of sand. The weather keeps changing, so we have to be alert! Each game is a different, exciting challenge. Skills of communication, decision making and creative thinking are nurtured. Don't get stuck on Fifth Avenue, Dad! Includes: 12 x 12" board, weather reports, errands, cars, places, snow and ice, service trucks.Our customers say: "A brilliantly conceived game, more fun than dice-oriented play." - Ontario, CanadaPlay as friends, not as enemies! Family Pastimes games foster the spirit of cooperation. Players help each other climb a mountain, make a community, complete a space exploration... They never play against each other. After all, the initial impulse to play a game is social; that is, we bring out a game because we want to do something together. How ironic then that in most games, we spend all our efforts trying to bankrupt someone, destroy their armies - in other words, to get rid of one another!At Family Pastimes we believe that people of different ages and abilities should be able to play side by side, each making their best contribution. We are all there together when we finish the game to take joy in our successes and wonder how we might work together even better the next time we play. Thus, Family Pastimes games will prove to be a friendly form of fun. Socialization, entertainment, academic learning, character growth, etc. - whatever your objectives, we invite you to realize them by cooperative means. We hope you enjoy playing and learning together!
