Parents' Choice Recommended

Imagine a place where there's a queen of all pancakes, a king of cookies and a pack of over-protective dragons? If this sounds like something out of a dream, it actually is! Sleeping Queens was invented by 6-year-old Miranda Evarts, who thought up the game one night when she couldn't fall asleep. She awoke the next morning and with help from her older sister, Madeleine and her parents, Denise and Max created this wonderfully whimsical world of napping nobles. As you immerse yourself in the Evarts' fantasyland, you will find a game that helps develop memory, strategy, and elementary arithmetic skills. Just be careful when playing potion cards or you could wind up putting all the players to sleep! Rise and Shine! The Pancake Queen, the Ladybug Queen and ten of their closest friends have fallen under a sleeping spell and it's your job to wake them up. Use strategy, quick thinking and a little luck to rouse these napping nobles from their royal slumbers. Play a knight to steal a queen or take a chance on a juggling jester. But watch out for wicked potions and dastardly dragons! The player who wakes the most queens wins.

best game for 5 year old
Posted 12/18/2013

It is true that the rules of this game initially seem complicated. But my 5 year old daughter picked them up faster than I did. She wants to play constantly and the best part is I enjoy it, too. Even my 3 year old son will sit in on the game as long as he can hold the nights. This is the best card game for children that I have encountered. After owning it for a couple of months, I purchased two more for nieces and nephews.

Strategic Fun For All The Family
Posted 6/29/2013 by Jane Sleeth

Sleeping Queens is a wonderful card game. We have purchased a number of Gamewright card games and this is definitely our favorite. It takes very little time to comprehend the rules and yet the game is complex enough to keep my daughter entertained - we have played this game every day since we bought it over two weeks ago and she still loves it. I have to confess so do I! It requires some thinking through, strategic play and offers plenty of options throughout the game. I like also that it includes opportunities for simple addition when playing your hand of cards and gathering the Queens. I would highly recommend this game.

Very fun card game
Posted 2/23/2013 by Lisa V

I bought this for my 5 year old daughter and I would say that its probably her favorite card game. My other daughters, ages 15, 13, 11 and 9, and myself also like to play it. It teaches some basic math concepts (addition or subtraction), and is an easy game to understand. Object of the game, to "wake up" (flip over and take) as many queen cards and win with a certain number or most points (each queen has a point value). To play, you work with 5 cards in your hand and discard/take always to keep 5. There are a variety of "special" cards with special powers (knight, dragon, sleeping potion, wand, jester) that can be played throughout the game. To make the game last longer, we have varied the game a bit by waking up all the queens, no matter the number of players! This game would be great for ages 5-9. Its a very cute, fun, easy card game, and I love the fact that a little girl created it!
