Review of Xeko: Mission China Cards12:51 PM
Has Pokemon worn thin? Do you feel like trading cards should educate as well as entertain? Are you as enamored with panda bears as I am? Then consider what Xeko: Mission China can teach your child!
A trading card game with so much more to offer than your typical cartoon-based versions, this is a beautifully-illustrated and completely collectible way for kids to learn all about China! The fourth in a series of starter sets from Xeko, the Mission China game brings the natural habitat of China into your living room -- and presents a fun opportunity for young and old to get into distant lands!
Each starter set comes with:
Playmat / EcoMap Giant Learn-to-Play Cards
2 Limited-Edition Sketch Cards
Xeko doesn't just talk the "conservation" talk, however. It also delivers true green values with its practice of printing cards on 100% recycled stock and with eco-friendly inks! Awesome!
This game took a bit to get started (I'm a slow learner.) The kids caught on, however, and they had a blast together! Recommended for ages 8 and up, it's best for older kids and adults to play (although younger tykes can enjoy viewing the detailed cards and talking about the culture.)
I'm hooked! For a full briefing on all of Xeko's brilliant products, visit their website at www.xeko.com.
