Have I got an amazing game to review for you all today! A couple of weeks ago, as part of my ‘1,000 Likes Giveaway’, I did a giveaway for a game called Speedeebee. It’s from Blue Orange Games. You may recognize that name as the maker of ever-so-popular games like Spot It! and Gobblet.
Aside from this review, I think Blue Orange games makes some of THE BEST games available right now. I own others (just for fun!) and they are all well made, creative, and engaging for people of all ages.
The game in this review, Speedeebee, is no exception!
If you’re familiar with Spot It!, this game is just as small! See how I can fit the entire thing in my hand. How perfect is this for the traveling therapist, or one with a small room! (Or me… who doesn’t have a room and keeps things in her bedroom! It’s great!)
So, how do you play? If you are interested in seeing a video and reading the information straight from the website, check out the page on Speedeebee from Blue Orange Games here.
Speebeedee contains 4 colored dice with letters on each side, 50 game cards, and instructions. All of this fits perfectly into the small, circle tin. Each game card has four colored stripes that correspond with the colors on the die.
The point of the game is to roll all of the dice, and answer questions on the cards based on those dice. The questions will ask the child (or adult) to come up with a word containing or excluding a specific colored die. For example, “Name something you can see through, starting with one of these letters (throw all 4 dice).”
Below are two cards showing how this game can target parts of speech, including adjectives and verbs!
The card below shows how this game would be AMAZING for vocabulary development. The card on the left targets the word ‘mobile’ and the card on the right targets the word ‘stationary’.
Blue Orange Games states this game targets cognitive speed, vocabulary, spelling, and reaction time. Speedeebee has won many awards including the Play Advances Language Award. Pretty great, huh?
If you have students that may benefit from the vocabulary words, but who would struggle including or excluding certain letters, you can play without the dice! Just have the answer the beginning of the question!!
This game will absolutely be coming along with me on my externships. I can see using this with a HUGE variety of clients, even adults! It’s great for word finding and vocabulary goals, but hopefully you can see how versatile it can be! This game is officially on my ‘must have’ list, probably along with 99% of all Blue Orange Games.
If you are interested in purchasing this game, you can check it out on Amazon at the link below, or on the Blue Orange Games website.
