Clothespin Game Review and giveaway

Congratulations to Rebecca! She won the fun Clothespins! Game from Briarpatch! Thanks to all who entered!
We just got a great new game from Briarpatch called Clothespins!
This game is a game that the whole family can play and enjoy. It is a rummy style game where you have to complete the three clotheslines. You must place three or more matching laundry cards in your hand on each line, then place a finishing pole to close the line. What is really a good competitive move in this game, is you can use your bird cards to move clothes from a clothesline to another clothesline or take laundry from an opponent.
To end the game, one player completes all three clotheslines. To win the game, players count the cards that they have played and score points, while deducting points for any cards still left in hand. The player with the most points wins. Complete game rules are tucked inside each box including rules for younger players where the laundry-stealing bird cards need not to be played. Each Clothespins! Game comes with 4 game boards, 66 playing cards that feature 12 finishing poles, 49 laundry cards and 5 mischievous birds. The new game, available in Spring 2008, is designed for children ages 5+ and for 2 to 4 players with a suggested retail price of $12.99.

I think this is a great game, and a good strategy learning game for kids. It creates giggles and fun family times!
