When I was younger, I enjoyed playing card games that revolved around magic and wizards. I spent hours after school adventuring with groups of my friends while we searched for treasure and battled monsters. When my kids were little, they were attracted to the same types of games, but many of those games were too complicated. Gigamons is a game that I know they would have enjoyed.

The Quest for Magical Elemons with Gigamons
Enter a realm where magic reigns and the world’s elements are creatures with mythical abilities! On your turn, you will look at 2 of the face-down Elemons on the table, revealing them to all players. When you find a pair of Elemons, you will earn them and also invoke their unique special power, giving you an advantage for the rest of the game. Every three of the same Elemon you find, will summon the corresponding Gigamon to your side. And when you have 3 Gigamons, you win the game! Gigamons is a game artistically designed to engage the player’s imagination and carry them away to a new world.
Gigamons is a memory card game that is geared toward children ages six and up. This card game helps to reinforce memorization, focus, attention, and problem-solving. The game can be played with two to four players and the full game takes about 15 minutes to play. Memory games have always been a huge hit in our home. They are fast-paced and easy for even younger kids to play because they lack complicated directions.
I love how bright and colorful the Gigamon figures and the tokens are. They seem to be patterned after the elements (water, fire, grass, etc.), and they are both cute and colorful without being at all mystical which may be an issue for some parents. You could easily use this game as a homeschooling tie-in to a discussion about different elements/nature. If you’re looking for a new matching game, I’m sure your kids would enjoy this.
