SNIPE Hunt Game by Education Outdoors Review!


If your family enjoys spending time in the outdoors camping or if your children are in the scouts, chances are you have heard of the elusive creature of the forest, the Snipe. Traditionally nothing more than a campfire prank, Education Outdoors has transformed the story of the Snipe into a new family board game called Snip HuntA tradition passed down through the generations, the Snipe Hunt originated as a tall tale told by parents and teens to younger children. Inexperienced campers are told about a bird or animal called the Snipe and the usually preposterous method of catching it, such as running around the woods carrying a bag or making strange noises such as banging rocks together. As children set off in search of the Snipe, their elders take in the antics and try to contain their laughter.

A twist on this fruitless quest, Snipe Hunt is an indoor or outdoor game of hide-and-seek where players try to be the first to find their opponent’s Snipe and return it to its nest. To play, the teams choose an area that will be the Snipe nest and two areas to hide their Snipes. Each team turns their Snipe on and disappears to find the best hiding place for them. In five minutes the Snipes will begin chirping and their eyes will start flashing red so teams must hurry to get back to the nest before they giveaway the direction their Snipe is hiding. Once both Snipes are hidden, the hunt begins! The first team to return their opponents Snipe to the nest is the winner. Each game comes with two snipes, (named Biela and Smartin) and a Snipe nest. The packaging tells the story behind the legendary campfire animals.
My family really enjoyed hunting for snipes. I think they are so adorable. Each snipe comes equip with their own alerting system that I found to be vary high quality. There was no distortion in the sound the snipes made when away from their nest for a while. That made them accessible to hide in way more spots than you could possible imagine. The sound quality is what matters the most when delivery this type of game and Education Outdoors nailed it. It did not waver when covered with blankets and hidden behind closed door, the perfect pitch. The glow feature to their eyes that blink in a pattern like the sound alert does makes them fun at night too. They are very bright so for example if they're hidden in the brush outdoors you will be able to see the glow of their eyes to guide you. This game takes hide-and-seek to a new level of fun. This game could be played for a party of one or 2 or even teams, everyone can play. Perfect game for the adventure seeker in your life. We just love the Snipe Hunt game, my daughter especially she kept winning.
