Spooky Steps from Orchard toys

Spooky Steps is a great new game from Orchard Toys.
It is for children aged 4-12 and 2-4 players, and costs £15.95.
As with all Orchard Toys it is made of bright coloured and strong board, with the promise to replace any bits lost, mangled or chewed! Which I think is a great initiative on behalf of their customer service.

 

We loved playing this game as a family. You start the game as a frog and have to travel through all the rooms of the house past the sleeping witch to the cauldron where you get a chance to turn back into a human. there are educational elements to the game, thinking about the probability of getting a ghost card, lots of counting and doubling. We think it is good for all ages, easy to learn, little ones will like the jigsaw pieces and building the house. The cauldron was a bit tricky to fix together but once put together stores neatly in the box. You do need quite a bit of space so this may be a good game to play on the floor if you don’t have a big table. We think the artwork is fun and the boy loved looking in all the spooky rooms. The rules are easy to change to make them age appropriate, or even just to make the game last longer.

Overall a fun game, something special for Halloween! and we gave it a thumbs up 5/5

  1. Thanks for your lovely review of Spooky Steps which you all seem to enjoy! Dad was very brave turning over all those cards, until he turned over a cobweb card, which meant that he couldn’t turn over any more. A ghost card means that you have to go back the number of steps you’ve turned over, but it’s a game of risk so that can, and does, happen! Hope it becomes a firm family favourite!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Linda, we loved the game, as you can tell maybe daddy loved it a bit too much! (Must be the competitive streak) It is one we might have to bring out at Halloween and add a few forfeits!
