Strategy Game for Two — Nowhere To Go

My kids and I LOVE Nowhere To Go, a new thinking strategy game from Educational Insights for two players.

I almost always win. (My philosophy is that my kids need to learn how to beat me. It makes them think harder.)

But no matter who wins, we have lots of fun. And I like that it doesn’t take forever to play. Maybe 10 minutes.

Win by trapping the other player so that . . . there’s nowhere to go.

How to Play Nowhere To Go:

1. Each player places his or her spy piece on the starting spaces.
2. Players take turns moving their spy piece as many spaces as they like across any bridges that are not     blocked.
3. Players end their turns by placing a blocker on any bridge.
4. The first player to trap the other spy with blockers wins!

It’s a lot of fun!

The Educational Insights games are no-brainers for parents like us who appreciate learning and thinking games, don’t you think?
Oh, and Nowhere To Go is supposed to be ages eight and up but it depends on your child. JJ and I play it; she’s only six.

    Oh! I think my daughter would LOVE this game! This is the first I’ve heard about it. I’ll have to keep an eye out for it in stores…that is if we don’t win it here. ;-)

    I always play a game with kids on my caseload after a hour long hard work session. It’s exciting to know that more games for the “older set” are still being created! This would be a fantastic game to actually use DURING my therapy! The kids would love it and I would be “killing 2 birds with 1 stone!”

    Logic games are good for any age. Playing with kids seems to give us an excuse or remind us that we should keep playing at any age.

  • Jackie

    I am so glad to have found your site! I always learn something useful. This game looks amazing, and just the idea of spies being involved, I know I will have no problem drawing my sons into playing it with me.

  • Kendra

    I would LOVE to win this game! My daughter and I would enjoy playing it and I would really try to not “help” her to win….my husband tells me she needs to learn how it’s okay to lose sometimes, but it’s hard for me to see her lose. Hopefully I win!
