My kids love playing the Floor is Lava anywhere, and everywhere, all the time. Basically players imagine that the floor is made of lava and avoid touching the ground when another player shouts “the floor is lava!” with a countdown. I knew right away that they would love the new game from Endless Games, “Floor is Lava” where players jump along “stones” for safety.
The game includes:
- 25 Colored Foam” Safety Stones”
- 27 Challenge Cards
- 1 Game Spinner Card (with arrow and base)
- Instruction Sheet
To play, one player is nominated to be the spinner and manage the challenge card deck until a player is out and take over these duties.
The first spinner shouts “The floor is lava!” to begin the game and all players rush to a foam tile of any colour. The spinner then spins for the first coour and all players jump on a tile of that colour. The last person to reach safety has their original safety stne removed from the game. If a player cannot reach a tile or they touch the floor, that player is out.
When a player lands on a tile with a “?” on it they must perform the action on a challenge card in the deck without falling into the lava, or the player is out.
Play continues until there is only one player left.
My family loves playing The Floor is Lava! together and enjoy that it includes physical activity, imagination and a whole lot of fun.
Endless Games is donating a portion of proceeds from every single sale of it’s the Floor is Lava game to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to help the people impacted by the volcanic eruptions. Help the people of Hawaii and Guatemala by purchasing the game.
