We were sent the new Dobble kids game to review, and just like Dobble it didn’t disappoint! This versatile little game may be simple, and even at first sound like the appeal would be over in five minutes. We have found that it is a game that we keep coming back to.
The difference with Dobble kids, and original Dobble is simply the pictures are easily recognisable to children of ages 4+ and maybe younger. Being animals and not objects means everyone can get involved, with play for 2 to 5 players. The boy loves original Dobble, but some of the pictures are not everyday objects, i.e.: a treble clef.
Dobble Kids, comes in a great tin with instructions, and 30 cards. The basic concept of Dobble Kids is snap. Spot the animal in common. Depending on the mini game the one with the most/least cards is the winner. There are 5 mini games in the instructions and each takes only a few moments to learn, but as I found out, given a couple of goes and the boy was beating me on reaction speed.
With only 30 cards in Dobble Kids as opposed to 55 in Dobble, the games are shorter, the boy was also able to make up his own games, and even sat and played solitaire finding the matching animals. This game has been a great distraction on the train, as well as last week in our hotel. It’s such an easy game to grab and throw in the rucksack, with no fear of loosing parts, or getting dog-eared in its cute round tin.
Here is an example of game play, lots of concentration and guess what the boy wins!
We are huge Dobble fans, and as with all simple games, I am sure Dobble kids will become a classic game that all families have in their games cupboard. If you would like the chance to win your very own then simply follow the Gleam instructions below, and fingers crossed.
