Moose Caboose Card Game Review



For those of you that have been around Peanut Butter and Whine for a while you know I have a love affair with Winning Moves Games. This site has so many amazing games for ALL ages! All in one spot! The Grandkids and I still play with the games we’ve reviewed with Crocodile Dentist being played on almost a daily basis.  They can’t get enough of that snappy little croc!!

I have a new game to tell you about today called Moose Caboose. It’s a fun card game for ages 6 and up. However 4 year-old Alice picked it up quickly (with modified rules)!

This set of cards are fun and bright! The artwork is so cute!! Filled with a traveling circus of animals including lions, tigers and bears OH MY! (sorry couldn’t resist!) Kangaroos, flamingos, zebras and monkeys and more. The animals are drawn in such a cute way that it’s best to just let the kids look through the deck first or you’ll never get the game started; the animals are just that cute.

Starting the game you lay out the four alligator-driven “Engine” cards. Each engine card has a different colored right edge.   Deal each player four cards. You then take turns adding cars to the train, matching the end colors. Draw a card every time you play a card. Anytime you want you can play a Moose Caboose Card (as long as the color stripe matches of course) to end the train and pick up all of the car cards in that row except the Engine Card. That train starts over. At the end of the game the player with the most cards wins. The trick is to grab all those cards before someone else….. how long will your train be??

Moose Caboose can be played with 2 to four players.


I will never complain about game time with the Grandkids! Ever!! This is a fun game that we all enjoy! Truly a great addition to any card game library!

    I like Winning Moves, too. I picked up a Rubik’s Cube this Christmas, for my niece. Let her feel the frustration I felt back in the 70s!


    Ha ha! She’s a natural! I wish more children were actively involved in playing games rather than passively staring at screens. I’m afraid we’re creating a generation with impaired social skills.
