Staccups the new game from University Games certainly get the competitive juices flowing in our household!
We are all incredibly competitive (although I am less so when playing with Freddie, although hubby is absolutely not!!).
Staccups is a very simple game but really lots of fun.
We love playing games in our homeschool, check out the best educational games we play.

The Staccups box is instantly a hit.
It is really bright colors and definitely something I would pick up in a toy shop. It’s clearly not aimed at either sex which is great. Especially as so many games are aimed clearly either at boys or girls!
In the box, there are 16 boxes with 4 different colors. You have to add different color bases to each of them (it tells you which color lid to add to each cup).
How to play Staccups?
There is a base included where you push the center for a color and then you have to quickly stack your cups on your side as quickly as you can.
To start you push the button in the middle of the base to see what color cup starts.
Then you quickly stack your cups based on the first color from the base. Then match the color of the next cup with the color of the last base. The winner is the first person to get rid of their cups (in the correct order!)
This sounds incredibly simple, which it is. However, when you are competing against each other it is much harder than you think!
Check the Staccups game out for yourself and have fun at the weekend.
Staccups is a really quick game. Therefore you would have a few rounds or if playing with a family or friends group the winner stays on etc. But it is really easy to play and set up.
The age on this is 8+ I am not sure why it is that old. I would think a 6 year old could easily play it.
It is certainly a great board game for 8 year olds for all of the family to play. And will certainly be played at Christmas here.
