The boy has really started to enjoy playing board games over the last few months, and with Dad M still not quite mended it has become part of our weekend to sit and play at least one game. Over christmas we had been given a few new games but the boy was most fascinated with the The Best of TV & Movies board game from Drumond Park.
The Best of TV & Movies board game is from the Logo family and has already reached the heights of 4th most popular family board game in the UK. Like the other games in the series it comes with a playing board, box of 400 question cards, six playing pieces and 3 special bonus cards for use when playing as a team. This year we had three christmas days and the final one with bingo granny, uncle and Miss L was the perfect opportunity to try out this more grown up board game.
The Best of TV & Movies costs £29.99 and is recommended for age 12+, a game for 2-6 individual players or 2 teams of any number. We chose to play as a team the boy enjoyed playing but would have struggled to answer a lot of the questions as they contain lots of programs which he is not familiar with. Having said that there was plenty of question which the boy could get involved with including singing Disney themes! The playing format is the same as previous logo series of games, taking turns to ask and answer each coloured question from the card and moving to each correctly answered space in turn. When playing as a team you have some fun special bonus cards:
Mute Button: stops one team member from answering
Change Channel: allows to return a card they don’t like the look of
Fast Forward: allows a team to skip to the next question
Each of these Bonus cards can only be used once per team, making gameplay more fun. Play continues with questions being thrown to the other team for extra chances to move, until you reach the top of the board. The winner is the team to answer either 2 consecutive questions or the green question from the current or next question card.
After discovering that the question cards need a good shuffle before you start we found the questions were a good mixture of subjects. The game we played was close right till the end with both teams making it to the final square of the board. The winners were the boy, uncle and Miss L winning with a singing rendition of Sponge Bob square pants!
The Boy really enjoyed this game and despite some of the questions being too old for him enjoyed playing question master and challenging everyone to answer all the questions from a card.
The Best of TV & Movies board games is currently available online, or from these main retailers or as a mini version ideal for travel at just RRP £4.99.
