Which Way? Game Review

Bonjours lecteurs! If there is something we like, it is a good game that is educational. Playing is fab but if our little ones can also get something out of it, then way better! We recently received the Which Way? Game from Learn with Ojo. Created in collaboration with the super funky OKIDO Magazine, this coding board game is pretty cool! Let me show you in pictures our very Frenchie Which Way? Game Review!

Which Way Game from Learn with Ojo

The Which Way game from Learn with Ojo is pretty simple. It is a new strategy game for 4-8-year-olds that will get kids to practise their coding skills.

We have already featured Learn with Ojo on the blog. The brand helps parents with their little ones’ learning! It offers many activities for families to enjoy together.

The new Which Way? game is fab to play as a famille or even with their friends!

We played for hours!

The goal of the game is simple, you need to help Messy (from CBeebies TV show, Messy Goes to OKIDO) to visit all his friends across the map. The first one to do so is the winner.

What Is In The Box?

It is pretty sure that, once more, the brand has thought about practicalities here. You get all the elements to play the game:

Checking out carefully the rules before we got started
  • 1 magnetic board
  • 16 magnetic tiles to make a path
  • a cute car
  • and the mission wheel to get you going

The pack contains all you need!

But even cooler (and way more practical for busy parents!), you also have a lot of spare batteries and a mini screwdriver. So that you have it all ready if you need to replace the batteries in the magnetic car!

It is such a bonne idée! I don’t know about you but I hate it when we have a new toy and the batteries are not working within a couple of weeks. I never have the right ones at home and we always have to rush to a shop to get some… When we get the right model too!

Ready To Play with the Which Way? Game?

Ready to play? C’est parti! As soon as we received the box, we started it. It is so simple and you pretty have nothing to do to set it up!

It is only down to your little grey cells to do the rest!

  • Spin the mission wheel to see where you need to go
  • Think about the best way to reach your goal
  • Build your path with the tiles on the board
  • Time to test it and see if the car has a pleasant journey
  • Get your score

Building up his path…

And if you want to play more, there is also a QR code you can scan with more ideas to enjoy the set.

What We Like About It

  • The spare set of batteries are a hit, I would not lie. I am not over it yet 🙂

 

  • The magnetic car is super fun and testing your route is so entertaining. For a little one like Baba, it is very funny! As he is still a bit young, there were times he didn’t really build an adequate path. He loved seeing the car going off the path and I reckon he was sometimes doing it on purpose… So Baba is a bit young to understand the idea of the game. But featuring a cute character such as Messy from the fameux CBeebies TV Show is really cool!

He might have overdone it a bit 🙂
  • If your children are older than Baba, it will really help them to develop key skills such as focus, resilience and even communication!

 

  • More importantly, it will help your little ones to build fundamental life skills. The Which Game? teaches them more than building a path. Children can also practise reading a map, plan an idea and see how it works out. It really makes them think.

Even in the morning, we go to use our brain a bit. With some brioche on the side of course!

Which Way? Game Review – Le Verdict

Baba is still a bit young to fully grasp the concept and fully enjoy the game and its coding aspect. Having said that, he has been loving playing it. I could see that he understood what was expected of him (build a path to go from point A to point B).

It is such a fun and sweet game! But also very clever!

He particularly loved the magnetic car (I had to hide it when we were not playing with the board game anymore it as he was obsessed with it…), even if the wheels part can sometimes get a bit loose. But you always have a screwdriver from the pack so it is quick to fix.

More importantly, it made him think and it was more than playings with a car! He liked the challenge of building a path. Furthermore, I witnessed his joy when he achieved it well.

Once you finish your path, the car will tell you if you are right

It is a good way to get their creativity and their thinking going (so important in mathematics later on at school!).

It is a lovely game unlike anything else you will find in the shops! And it teaches children the basics of programming! A fab educational game that is also mega fun!

Le verdict from Baba? It is a hit!

    There seems to be more and more games (well at least I’ve come across some apps) with an educational element of coding for children. I think this is great as a skill today, especially in this technology age, I wish there was more for adults in this way as we’re getting left behind!

    Fab game though and love the educational element.
