)-- Sixteen, the highly acclaimed card game by Alpine Games, has won yet another award; TDmonthly's Top Toy 2008 Award. This award recognizes a combination of coveted qualities: superior design and materials, safety, excellent play value, innovation in the way the product is conceived and executed, strong sales potential, and environmental and/or social consciousness.
Kris Cox, President of Alpine Games, stated sales of Sixteen have continued to increase since the game's July 2007 release. He noted, "Customers continue to tell us that this is one of the most engaging and creative card games they've played in years. Adults love it because of its quality play action, and parents love it because of the cognitive stimulation it provides--especially in math and logic skills. Kids love it just because it's fun."
Sixteen is recommended for ages 8 and older, and is packaged with easy instructions for two players. Additionally, instructions with a four-player variation are now available for download on the game's official website. Playing Sixteen involves counting, matching, and forming sets while simultaneously working to block your opponent from doing the same. Sixteen is one of the most decorated new games on the market, with awards and recognition from Dr. Toy, Major Fun, NAPPA, Creative Child Magazine, and the Family Review Center.
