I love family games and we were sent some amazing ones this year to review
We loved Pass the Bomb which is a fast fun family game, it is a very simple idea and really works!
you get a plastic electronic bomb, which requires two AAA batteries to play, a 55 pack of cards which have beautiful pictures on, and an instruction leaflet, the box isn't over sized and the rules are easy.
Then you pass the bomb around the players each taking a turn to say a word which associates to the picture on the card.
Watch out though, because the bomb will go off at any point and if your holding the bomb when it does you loose that round and keep the card, the winner is the player with the least cards at the end.
It really is a fun game which everyone can enjoy, the age rating is 5 + which I think is sensible, although my 4 year dose join in with us and enjoys the game.Much younger and they would not understand the word association as well.
This really is a great game and I would recommend it for anyone, its great for rainy day fun, to take on holidays for any moments of boredom, for Christmas and family gatherings... this game fits all!
Then there are the amazing Smart games which I really can't praise enough they are exceptional quality and all of them give hours of entertainment, the cannibal monsters is my eldest sons favourite, wheres as the north pole camouflage was a huge hit with my daughter and Dad and Grandad couldn't put down Anti Virus!
The concept of Anti Virus is to move the red 'virus' out of the board there are 60 challenges spanning over 5 levels, each level is shown in the leaflet guide.
the board is sturdy plastic as are the pieces, an at the end of the day you can neatly pack it away and keep all the pieces safe in a zip up bag which is a great feature! all the smart games are priced at £14.99
Then there was the fun games that the younger family members can enjoy such as Red Rover and Smashed potatoes both have been a huge hit and amongst my youngest favourite things to do!
So if you're looking for that special game to help keep the family entertained over Christmas I would recommend any of these.
