It's a really fun card game for children. Most of my son's games are board games so having playing cards made this even more fun for him.
But the most exciting part of the game was all the cute little rubbery dogs and cats that come with the game!
These are the spectators for your flea circus. Aren't they adorable!
As the Flea Circus Performers, you want to get the attention of as many spectators as possible. To do this, you play your Attractions cards with different point values to attract the spectators to you.
But watch out! Other players just might have special cards like the Animal Catcher that can steal your spectators away from you.
The game ends when all of the spectator dogs and cats have been claimed and the winner is the player with the most spectators.
Dogs are worth 2 points and cats are worth 1 point. Nicholas won this game with 32 points to my 28 points!
Nicholas has a lot of fun with Flea Circus so we've played it over and over again.
It is a rather quick game, maybe 15 minutes, so it's easy to play a couple of games after doing schoolwork or before bedtime.
Flea Circus is recommended for ages 6 and up. Nicholas is 7 and we both had a lot of fun with it. The game is for 2-6 players. It is great for 2 people but even more fun with more because there are more players to steal spectators away from.
