Our family had the opportunity to work with Family Pastimes Cooperative Games. This unique Canadian company makes wonderful family games. I have truly never played anything like them. Our entire family loved them, and Max was an awesome addition to board game night. 
     The point of Max the board game is to get all of the creatures home before Max (the cat) catches them! You have to help out a bird, chipmunk and a mouse during game play. 

     I love this game because it allows children to learn logic, consultation and decision making. An important issue to discuss is also raised: we don’t like Max catching the creatures, but he is a cat, and a hunter. During the game play, it gave us the opportunity to discuss this with our kiddos and have them express their opinions. 
     Max is for 1-8 players and appropriate for ages 4-7 (although us adults loved it too). It is a very unique and simple game. It teaches children valuable lessons that most games do not teach. If you are interested in learning more about Max, check out the Family Pastimes site! They offer the option to play Max online, so you can understand exactly how much fun your family will have! 
     Family Pastimes makes a ton of amazing, one of a kind games. They are the creations of Jim Deacove. Jim started off by making cooperative games for his family and then was encouraged to make even more. This is how Family Pastimes came to be what it is. If you visit their site here, you will find an endless treasury of eco-friendly games. They will add many hours of enjoyment to you family board game nights!

Thanks for the great review of Max! My kids grew up with Max and other FP boardgames, and now I'm part of the team working on the Max app for iPad (coming soon). We would love to hear what people think of the on-line version. Follow my website link to play!
