Education Outdoors: Snipe Hunt Game...Review & Give Away!



The kids and I love being outdoors and being active.  We also love games.  When I was approached to review a game that included the three above elements I couldn't wait to try it out.  Snipe Hunt from Education Outdoors is a hide and seek game for the whole family!  Here are the details...


A tradition passed down through the generations, the Snipe Hunt originated as a tall tale told by parents and teens to younger children. Inexperienced campers are told about a bird or animal called the Snipe and the usually preposterous method of catching it, such as running around the woods carrying a bag or making strange noises such as banging rocks together. As children set off in search of the Snipe, their elders take in the antics and try to contain their laughter.


A twist on this fruitless quest, Snipe Hunt is an indoor or outdoor game of hide-and-seek where players try to be the first to find their opponent’s Snipe and return it to its nest. To play, the teams choose an area that will be the Snipe nest and two areas to hide their Snipes.


Each team turns their Snipe on and disappears to find the best hiding place for them. In five minutes the Snipes will begin chirping and their eyes will start flashing red so teams must hurry to get back to the nest before they giveaway the direction their Snipe is hiding. Once both Snipes are hidden, the hunt begins! The first team to return their opponents Snipe to the nest is the winner.

We 100% love this game and it is an almost daily addition to our day.  All three of the kids get a kick out of hiding the Snipes (named Smartin and Biela).  The boys are almost 6 and little R just 2 1/2 but they can all play this game and enjoy it.  The wonderful thing about Snipe is that it can be catered to all age and skill levels.  I have been very impressed by how well the kids can hide the Snipes.  Some of my favorites?  In a watering can and deep in the flower pots.  I love the chirping sound and it makes it even more fun and manageable for little ones.  Even though this is marketed as more of an outdoor camping game this is a super game for inside and we have enjoyed a few rainy day marathon Snipe Hunt games...so fun!  I also really loved the packaging....a live animal box for the snipes to live!

Snipe Hunt can be purchased at  Bass Pro Shops, Cabelas, Books a Million stores and specialty retailers nationwide as well as the Education Outdoors website HERE for just $24.99.  It is worth every penny! 

I am so pleased to tell you that one lucky RBM reader will win Snipe Hunt! Thanks so much to the sponsor and here is how to enter...
