This game is a board game that increases knowledge in geography, and creatures of legend and fact. Each player must collect 3 pieces of evidence about their randomly selected creature. Creatures like Big Foot, the Loch Ness Monster, and Yeti have a country of origin where your game piece begins it’s journey.
A couple of the pieces of evidence have the scan bars, and we were able to watch a little clip on the mysterious creature. This was a super cool asset, I would love to see it on more of the cards!

In my youth, I had a fascination with unsolved curiosities—UFOs, the Bermuda Triangle, Bigfoot. My parents owned a set of Mysteries of the Unknown by Time Life and on multiple occasions I checked out episodes of Secrets & Mysteries from the library. Despite my grown-up level-headedness, I never really outgrew this: a good conspiracy theory or unsolved mystery still piques my interest.
One of the coolest aspects of the game is the collection of online videos. I enjoyed learning about each creature. While not all the evidence cards are very convincing, the game gives you enough information to spark your interest in the creatures.
My boys insisted I needed to find more evidence for Bigfoot when we were done with the game. I told them I was a little too busy and that Michigan isn’t known as a hotbed for Bigfoot activity, but this did not deter their enthusiasm. Bradley is currently considering a career in Bigfoot hunting.

Mysterious Creatures is a perfect game for a homeschooling family – or any family – who likes to challenge themselves, spend time together, and be inspired to further explore and learn about new things.
