Thomas' Great Race Game: Review and Giveaway!

My son loves Thomas, and he has so much fun playing with his Thomas Trains, and watching Thomas shows! I know he will really like this great game we got for him for Christmas! Thomas' Great Race from Briarpatch games!
This game is great for kids, because they use their counting skills to know what the answers to the cards are. The answer appears on the back of each card in the form of a graphic that matches one of the blocks of coal. A correct answer is rewarded when a player picks up the matching block of coal and inserts it into the open slot behind his engine, powering it up the hill. Each engine drops into a slot on the Great Race track, with the back of each slot open to receive “coal blocks.” Coal blocks are also different sizes and colors, adding to the fun and excitement of the race. Once the engines crest the hill, they roll across the finish line. Children also do color matching and sorting in this fun filled game! Thomas’ Great Race game is geared toward children ages three and up, and 2-4 players can play at a time. Each game includes a Great Race track, 4 racing engines, 24 question cards, 30 coal blocks and complete game rules. The game retails for $24.99.
Currently, Briarpatch offers more than a dozen different Thomas & Friends themed board and card games that have won multiple national awards. Thomas the Tank Engine is based on “The Railway Series” by The Reverend W. Awdry and has been enjoyed by children and their parents internationally for more than 60 years.
Briarpatch’s strong legacy of stimulating children’s lives through fun and eco-friendly products has earned the company over 280 industry awards (and counting). Since its founding, the company’s co founders applied environmentally conscious business practices in such innovative ways as using vegetable and soy-based inks and post consumer materials.
