Beagle or Bagel?
That’s the name of the visual perception game Ari and I purchased at the local independent book store. It sounded easy enough when I read the back of game box. However, when I opened Beagle or Bagel this evening — with the intention of playing the easiest version of the game with Ari — I discovered I couldn’t figure out how to play the game. Despite the visual rules looking simple, there was an aspect of them that was unclear.
At first, I thought I couldn’t understand what to do because Ari was anxious to get started. But, I couldn’t figure out what to do with the “double beagle” and the “double bagel” cards even after reading the directions for the first version of the game four times! I went to YouTube and searched for a video of how to play the game. While I came across the rules of all three versions of the game, I’ve gotta tell you… it went way too fast for me to figure it out.
I’m hoping to enlist the help of my husband to play a game or two of it with me before trying it with the kids again. Because, quite frankly, I refuse to let a game called Beagle or Bagel get the best of me!
