Game University: Blue Orange Games (July '13 Series)

Posted by aMuse Toys on July 19, 2013 1 Comment


We kicked off our Game University July '13 Series on Wednesday night with an aMuse favorite, Blue Orange Games. Kids and grown-ups alike filled the store wearing their Official aMuse Gamer Badges; ready to tackle the Spot It! challenge, learn about some newly released games and compete with members of the aTeam! For every three Game University events attended, kiddos receive a distinguished new title and a prize. From Gamer to Expert to Master to Legend, kids will be sporting some pretty decked out badges in no time!


The event was broken down into stations for visitors to experience everything that Blue Orange has to offer. Station one was equipped with all things Spot It! Participants battled it out with Spot It! JR, Spot It! Signature, Spot It! Spanish and the house favorite, Spot It! MLB. This visual perception and acuity game can be played in so many variations with an incredibly wide age range of players.



Station two highlighted new releases for 2013 including Flash!, Nada!, and Ooga Booga. Junior Sales Associate, Sebastian Towles, named Ooga Booga as his favorite camp care package item of the summer. That's really saying something coming from the child of toy store owners!



Station three was quickly occupied by little gamers in search of matching Pengoloo penguins, sneaky Gobblet Gobblers, and rocking Chicky Boom chickens.



Station four provided a sampling of aTeam favorites. There were several heated matches of Fastrack, quick-handed rounds of Trigger, and endless laughs while racing to squeak the Shrimp Cocktail starfish!



Join us at our Quarry Lake location every Wednesday in July from 3:30-5:30 for the Game University Series. Register here! We'll be waiting for you this Wednesday as we dive into an afternoon of ThinkFun games.
