quotes

“I like CUBU because of the higher level of thinking involved, and students stay engaged with each other and the game. Our teachers like it because students have to plan their next move and build off of something else. The students like CUBU because it is fun to play, and different from anything they have played before. Key points are that game can go long or short, and they have a lot of control in the game.”

~Middle School Special Education Teacher

 

Original game most successful when played with Middle-School aged students
Players aged 12-13 (Middle School): no adaptation needed
Players aged 5-11 (Elementary School):
Eliminate the action cards
Teachers and parents are encouraged to customize CUBU for younger players, using only one criterion for sequencing (by color position OR number of boxes) at a time
The CUBU cards are also very good tools to teach counting. They can be used in the same way as “touch math,” a visual/spatial depiction of number meaning (such as using the dots on dice instead of the Arabic numeral). With CUBU, the concentric rectangles – 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 on each card – can be counted incrementally.

CUBU~ Where Visual Illusion Leads To Confusion ~ Game Review

http://kidsfunreviewed.com/cubu-where-visual-illusion-leads-to-confusion-game-review/

We recently had the opportunity to check out the CUBU card game by Funnybone Toys. Actually it’s 2 games in one. CUBU and speed CUBU.

Both versions of the game are fast paced, and players have to be paying attention and focusing to do well. It’s a great visual game, and wonderful to help kids improve their focus.

Each card has a number of different color boxes on it. Some have 2 boxes others have up to 6 boxes one inside the other. Players have to follow the number of boxes, with the right colors.

In regular CUBU the cards are put into a pile when they’re played. If one person throws a card with a blue square in the 1 position (center square), then next player would have to throw a card with the blue square in the 2 position. Sequences can go up or down, but the cards all have to go in the same direction. The color and direction can be switched after each turn. When it’s your turn you declare what color and sequence you are playing. Then you can play as many cards as you have in that sequence.

There are also 15 action cards, like Miss A Turn, Swap, Interrupt a Turn, 1 Card Pickup, 2 Card Pickup and 3 Card Pickup. When one of these cards is added to the pile, the next player has to follow the instructions on the card. When a player plays one of those cards it ends their turn.

In Speed CUBU all of the players are simultaneously racing through their cards to slam them down side by side in sequence. The first player to get rid of all their cards wins.

Both games are fun! Speed CUBU would be a big hit at parties where you’re trying to keep the action going. Both games would be great to play with the kids for family game night.

It does take some focus and concentration for kids to sequence the lines on the cards. I think that makes it a great learning game, and can help improve their visual perception. My son enjoyed the game, and had a blast showing one of his friends how to play.

I can’t wait to take this game to our next family get together! They’re all super competitive. I’m sure it will get loud and crazy when they’re playing a game of Speed CUBU!
