The weather has improved, you might have spent the day in the garden or gone to the caravan for the weekend. In the evening it’s nice to relax with or without the kids and play a boardgame.
We’ve reviewed Ginger Fox family games before here and here and really enjoyed them and this set of games didn’t disappoint either.
Pinch ‘N’ Pass
Battle with your opponents and the buzzer in this quick-thinking, fast-paced game of categories. How many famous actors, pizza toppings, or breeds of dog can you name under pressure? ‘Pinch’ and ‘pass’ category cards by being able to list more than your opponents to win at this great, grabby game. There’s a huge variety of category cards – something for everyone! The spinner decides which round you play: PINCH! PASS! or HEAD-TO-HEAD. The random electronic timer creates tense gameplay – you never know who will be left with the card!
Picture the scene, it’s chucking it down with rain, the kids have said the word ‘bored’ approximately 438 times since 7am and colouring just isn’t cutting it anymore.
Thanks to the Ginger Fox Games Club we were sent some more Family Games to try out. We have played some of their games before and loved them. This time we got to play with Corks and The Emoji Game.
Could you be the last person holding the gold cork?
A fast and furious card game of elimination, speed, thought, co-ordination, stealth and dastardly cunning – when the need to get a cork comes before all others…
It’s a corker of a game!
Corks is a fab colourful game that the whole family can get involved in. It’s fast and fun and you could find yourself winning the brilliant golden cork!
It’s getting close to Christmas, the kids are constantly bouncing off the ceiling and somehow you want to keep them amused that doesn’t necessarily mean tablets or TV. Board/card games are a firm favourite in this house and never fail to get everyone involved from the littlest to biggest.
We were delighted to join the Ginger Fox Games Club and were sent some Family Games to try out. They sent us Cat Chaos and Which One?
These cards are hilariously cat themed and each one is a different take on a celebrity.
Are you feline lucky? Join this A-List cast of feline celebrities for a fast and frantic game of cat chaos, swap, grab and claw your way to victory by collecting cat-suits… just get stuck in and watch the fur fly!
There are 25 different sets of 4 cards (known as a cat suit) all with a celebri-cat on and differently coloured. The aim of the game is to be the 1st one to turn each of your cards into complete suits. You swap cards back and fore with the pile in the middle, it can get a bit mad with 4 players which only adds to the fun! This game is aimed at 8+ but my 5 year old daughter was ok playing it and we also played pairs and snap with it. We really enjoyed playing this, after we’d sat and laughed at each one first. Whoever came up with them is a genius!
- RRP: £8.00
- Age 8+
- 2 to 8 players
Which One? is a question and answer game containing 300 question cards and 1500 different questions on subjects ranging from British Sitcoms to the Phonetic Alphabet.
The question and answer game matching game with a twist! Match the ‘Which One?’ questions to the correct answers to win points but watch out – just one wrong match will lose you everything!
The box contains all you need:
- Question cards
- Answer/scoring sheets
The cards have the 5 possible answers at the top and the aim is then to decide which answer goes with which question. The answers are on the back of each card so make sure nobody is having a sneaky peak!! You get a point for each right answer but if you get one wrong it cancels all the points you got and takes you back to zero. Booo. Then start with another card and the first player to score 21 points is the winner.
I can see this being really good fun around the table after Christmas Dinner or Christmas Eve/Boxing day fun. It has a real mix of questions some you’ll find really easy other that’ll fry your brain!
- RRP: £18.00
- Age 14+
- 1 or more players
