peaceable kingdom :: games {giveaway}

What matters most to Peaceable Kingdom Press is simple: make good, do good, be good. We maintain a personal integrity in all of our relationships, we remain dedicated to producing original high-quality products that are manufactured in socially-responsible facilities, we use recycled and FSC certified paper in 100% of our cards and envelopes, we support our local community by volunteering in the schools and our larger world by donating to charitable organizations that support the lives of children, and we have fun while we work!


Unlike traditional games, these games teach cooperation, not competition. Players work together against an obstacle in the game. All games are 100% green – soy-based inks, FSC paper, corn-based plastic.

What is a cooperative game?
A cooperative game is a game where all players play together against a common obstacle, not against each. In a cooperative game no one feels left out and everyone has fun! Peaceable Kingdom’s cooperative board games use familiar game mechanisms – spinning a spinner, matching cards, moving a token, strategizing a win! The difference is that players play together. Playing together helps kids in many ways – they experience shared decision-making, they build self-esteem, they learn to share, to feel compassion, and to work as team. Playing cooperative games teaches kids to cooperate.


My son loves to play board games. He loves to win, what child doesn't. These are easy fun games that he understands and let him have fun. I love the cooperation games...we received the 2 games pictured here :: Hoot Owl Hoot (part of the cooperation games) and Spunky Monkey's Game.

These are perfect for my son. He and I have played them many times already. We have to play both every time. I just love the quality of these games as well. They are not cheap looking. They are very well made and sturdy! With kids that's what you need. He also loves that we all win instead of just one person on the Hoot Owl Hoot Game. I would love to have more of these games.

***If you write a review of a Peaceable Kingdom Press Cooperative Game on Amazon, Peaceable Kingdom Press will donate that game to a teacher/classroom of your choice! Here is the info about that on Peaceable Kingdom Press' Facebook Page

Hoot Owl Hoot :: $14.99

  3. I think we'd have to go for Stone Soup; I've always loved that story, and we love cooking in our house so it would go over very well. :) Plus, my boy really loves matching things!
