Blue Orange Family Games

Blue Orange Games, the award winning tabletop game publisher, is set to release a full slate of sixteen board games during the American International Toy Fair this year. Their lineup is very diverse including party games, puzzles, and everything in between. They may be different, but they all align with the company vision. They are all intended to be “easy to learn, fun to play, and enjoyable for all.”

Family Games

Pool Party

  •  2-4 players
  • 6 and up

“In this high-energy party game, players use one finger to launch their divers into a pool that is precariously perched atop a spring. The topsy-turvy pool sways from side to side every time a new diver lands and too many swimmers can cause it to tilt, spill over, and toss everyone out! The first player to land three divers in the pool wins, so accuracy, speed, and a little bit of luck is crucial for the win. Unique components and frenzied gameplay make this title fun for all ages.”

Shaky Manor 

  • 2-4 players
  • 7 and up

“In Shaky Manor, players race to protect their treasures from the spooky creatures that haunt the manor’s worn down halls. Each round, players must tilt and shake their individual manor boxes to try and gather certain objects into the correct room. But watch out- victory comes with a price! Each time a player succeeds in protecting their treasure, a new spooky creature is added into the mix to make the next round harder.”

Maki Stack

  • 2, 4, or 6 players
  •  7 and up

“A dexterity race of delicious proportions! In this game, players race their opponents to stack wooden sushi objects into the correct configurations. The catch? Each round, players must stack in “chopstick mode” using only two fingers or in “mask mode” with their eyes covered and a teammates’ voice as their guide. Play in teams with larger groups, or take on rival sushi chefs in solo competition, either way the first to complete their sushi tower before it tumbles takes home the victory!”

Preschool Games

Happy Bunny

  •  1-4 players 
  • 3 and up

“In this cooperative counting game, players work as a team to help the bunny pick the best carrots from the farmer’s garden. Each turn, one player picks a number of carrots from the garden and sorts them into two piles, one for the bunny and one for the farmer. At the end of the game, everyone helps line up the piles for comparison. If the bunny’s line is longer, the players win! The durable carrot pieces are firmly planted inside the box, so the self-contained game helps little hands develop fine motor skills.”

Where’s Mr. Wolf?

  • 1-4 players
  • 4 and up

“A cooperative game where everyone pitches in on the farm! Players must work together as a team to help the farm animals get back to their barns before Mr. Wolf arrives. Every time a Mr. Wolf token is found, he creeps one space closer, and every time a farm animal token is found, players must remember which barn they belong to. The cute animal tokens, 3D barns, and shared goal help children work on memory and teamwork at the same time.”

Kitty Bitty

  • 2-4 players
  • 4  and up

“Kitty Bitty is a remake of the beloved Blue Orange classic, Froggy Boogie. This adorable wooden game has little minds use memory and color recognition to help their kitten make it around the yarn balls and back to the basket. Each turn, players need to find the correct mommy cat and pick up one of her eyes; if it’s blank they can move on to the next yarn ball, but if there’s a kitten printed on the bottom they stay put and it’s the next players turn. The first kitten that makes it around all the yarn balls and back to the basket wins!”

Who Did It?

  • 3-6 players
  • 6 and up

“Was it YOUR bird that pooped in the living room? Because it wasn’t my bunny! In this hilarious card game, players race to get rid of their cards so they can avoid the blame of owning the animal that pooped. Each game is as funny as it is fast; quickly find your card, be the first to throw it down, and then blame someone else. The plush zippered pouch keeps all the cards safe and is the perfect size for on-the-go fun.”


  • 2-5 players

“It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a….bear? Clouds is a matching game that was made for the wildest of imaginations. In this game, players race to find the two halves of the picture shown on a challenge card, keeping the card as a point each time they are the first to find a match. A durable smiley-faced pouch with a convenient wrist strap stores all the cards and cloud tiles.”

Tofu Kingdom

  • 3-8 players
  • 10 and up

“Tofu Kingdom is a social card game of deduction and deception. Each round, one player assumes the role of Prince Mochi while the other players take on roles of their own. The Prince gets to ask each player one question to try and find his true love, Princess Tofu, but must take into account that not everyone will tell the truth. This clever game is adjustable to different player counts, making it great for parties and social gatherings.”


  • 2-4 players

“The silly face race! In this game, each player gets a set of colorful wooden cubes that have wacky eyes and mouths printed on their faces.

Brain Teasers

“The Mindo collection consists of four logic puzzles, each with a different theme: puppies, kittens, unicorns, or robots. The rules of Mindo are simple, you need to turn and flip the double-sided tiles to recreate the color pattern on the challenge card. They only fit one way into a 3×3 or 4×4 grid, so careful planning and logic are required. Four levels of difficulty and 60 challenges ensure hours of brain teasing fun.”

Mindo Zen

Brain Connect

“Brain Connect takes the classic sliding puzzles you know and love, and turns them into a brain teasing race! Players must work to connect two points on the puzzle by sliding and rearranging the tiles into the correct order.
