Spot It is a fantastic card game for your family!
(How quick is that for a review? Too quick, then read on for a little more.)
Spot It is a quick card game that only takes a minute or two to play and is all about spotting the image that matches on two cards before everyone else does. The tricky thing is that for any two cards in the deck, 1 and only 1 item will match. That’s great game design!
It may sound super simple, but that’s what makes it so enjoyable for families to play together. People of all ages can play it and enjoy it.
Check out Brooke’s video review to see how to play Spot It and what she thinks of the game.
Can the whole family enjoy Spot It?
Spot It is great for families.
Because of the simple play and the type of art on the cards, you may think that it’s just a kids game. But you’d be wrong. Playing with adults is a lot of fun too because of how competitive people become as soon as the cards are turned over.
Since there’s multiple ways to play it, you can find the one that your family likes best. And if you have some in your family that are super spotters and seem to always win, then you simply adjust the starting conditions to balance it out until the others improve in their spotting capabilities.
More about the cards
The design of the cards it perhaps the coolest thing about the game. With 55 round cards in the deck, each with 8 images on it, and 58 total assorted images it’s amazing that on any 2 cards there will only be 1 item that matches. Every card is unique, and has only one image in common with each card in the deck. We still scratch our heads about it, but not for very long because we jump right back to playing.
The deck packs into a compact tin that you can carry with you practically anywhere. And you don’t need much space to play it at all. Plus it plays so quick that it’s easy to pull out when you have a few extra minutes with your kids. It can even make a great bedtime game. Of course, we’d suggest you make it clear how many rounds you’re going to play before you start because it will be easy to get carried away.
How does Spot It score on our “Let’s Play Again” game meter?
Spot It scores very high on our “Let’s play again” game meter. The simplicity of it brings us back for more quite often. And once it’s out, it’s so easy to play over and over. We’ll leave it out on the table and it will get played repeatedly – a few minutes here, a few minutes there.
Thanks Blue Orange Games for a great family card game!

How to Play Spot It! Duel
I downloaded the Spot It game app first to check it out before I let Weston get his hands on it. While he loves Spot It games, he can get frustrated easily so I wanted to play first so I could help him in case he ran into any challenges getting started. (I maybe also wanted to play because I like a good puzzle type game. Maybe.)
Spot It! Duel is a lot like the Spot It! card games so if your kids enjoy those, they might enjoy this Spot It game online.
The set up of the Spot It app is simple enough that everyone can play with ease.
Here’s how it works:
- Each player has a disc filled with different symbols.
- Match the symbols on the center disc and they disappear. You earn score points for matches.
- You can also build larger combos to earn even more points.
- Your opponent can match to symbols on your disc while you play! That makes them disappear from your disc!
- Player with the most points wins the game!

Why We Like Spot It! Duel
After I played for a while (maybe longer than I will admit), Weston took over the game and then eve Carrigan got involved playing. I love that we were all able to enjoy the game together! Weston is almost seven so he’s able to play on his own without any trouble. At almost four, Carrigan really needed someone to play with her so she didn’t get too frustrated.
Her challenge was just the speed aspect and that she is now starting to understand winning and losing. And she always wants to win. That’s a three-year-old thing though, nothing to do with the game itself!
Our favorite things about being able to play a Spot It game online are:
