Best of British – Review and Giveaway

The Best Of British board game from Drumond Park (RRP £24.99), celebrates everything that makes this island what it is! This game is played with teams or individual players (2-6) and is suitable for ages 12+, although if you are playing as a team you can play with younger players, who I think will enjoy some of the fun questions.

The Best of British box contains a round playing board, 400 question cards, rules and 6 playing pieces. The game follows the same style of play as the other LOGO board games, so if you have played them The Best Of British will need no explaining.

We like to play The Best of British board game as teams so here is how you set up. Each of the two teams chooses a playing piece and places on the start square of the board. You then choose a question master for the first team, and they pick a card from the box. Starting with the top question on the card (red question) they read out to the other team. If they answer correctly they move their playing piece to that colour space on the board. If they answer incorrectly or pass then the question can be asked to the question masters team. If they can answer correctly then they can move their piece to the questions coloured space.

There are three types of question card, picture, theme and pot luck. Sometimes there is a picture or word clue on the back of the card and this side can be shown to the players. Play continues with each team taking it in turns to ask the questions from each card. Play continues until one of the teams reach the winning zone, where a bonus question must be answered before the team can be declared the winners.

The Best of British is a great game that we have enjoyed playing. The boy likes to be question master and this has improved his reading skills with some new words that he hadn’t come across before. There are some historical and difficult questions but we found there are also some very funny and random questions. Like what is the average weight of an average British snowman? The Best of British board game will be something that I think families can enjoy over a BBQ with friends and family, or if like us you plan to go away this summer it will be fun to take with us for that unexpected wet day!

We had great fun playing this game, and also just testing each other on our British knowledge, we loved the addition of the Olympic questions as the boy could answer some of these. If you would like to try out this fun British board game then have a look below at my giveaway.

Dr Dreadfull Scab N’ Guts Game review for Izziwizzi Kids

This is our second game review for Spin Master games, and Izziwizzi Kids Play Fest and I must confess I was not looking forward to this one, as I am a little bit squeamish! so was pleasantly surprised.

The game is for families and ages from 6+ and retails in the US at $14.99 which I think it good value for money.

The game comes in a lovely sturdy box with a long playing board with a body and lots of fun facts. Six playing pieces as organs, 2 packs of question and forfeit cards. I thought it was a great idea having the gameplay and rules printed onto the inside of the box with yet more fun facts, so no chance of losing the all important instructions.

The game starts with the player with the cleanest fingernails, and you choose a category. At this point I would like to say make sure that you give the cards a VERY good shuffle as all the forfeit cards are together, so good idea to spread them out on a table and shuffle that way. Players pick questions and move spaces as per the cards. Forfeits are great there are good (Green move forward) and bad (Brown move backwards). Some are facts, some you act out. The Boy (7) loved these, and I think it made up for the fact he lost the first game, as lots of giggles.

Some of the questions and words the boy found difficult to read as lots of medical words but great for the vocabulary! You take it in turns to read questions, but you could play in teams if playing with younger kids.

We loved this game, there is a nice mixture of hard and very easy multiple choice questions, the only problem we had with a couple was some of the American terms, like Boogers…The Boy thought lots were gross, but when a few questions came back round he had remembered the answers. We even got Granny playing this one, and although reluctant at first, thought it was good fun and went on to win.

I think this would be a GREAT christmas after dinner game, and lots of fun to be had!

we give this 5 out of 5! Brilliant…

Thanks to Spin Master, and Izziwizzi Kids…
