Another hit on our list of board games. This game is influenced directly from the online 'Angry Birds' game. Build, launch and destroy action packed game. Players draw a card and build the structure shown before their opponents launch an Angry Bird in an attempt to knock it, and the pigs down to win points. For 2 or 4 players. Very popular with children. Excellent indoor game to play with siblings or friends.


Quirkle Board Game

A welcome guest on our list of board games. You will need a large surface for this set up. The game consists of a range of 80 small coloured cubes with various shapes.

The game starts with players drawing their own "hand" of six tiles. The player with the most tiles that share something in common (color or symbol) plays their pieces and wins points. And so it goes until the pieces make up a giant grid. One rule adults will likely need to reiterate to little ones is that duplicate tiles don't count. For instance, if someone has three diamonds, and two of them are green, they can only count one of those diamonds for points. (From the game instructions)

For younger children distribute about half tiles out so that the game goes quicker. Usually this game would take 45 minutes.


Perplexus Maze Game


The Perplexus Original Maze Game is a clear sphere filled with multicolored pathways covering different areas of the sphere's interior. A small metal ball rolls around on the inside, and it's your job to guide that ball through the maze to its end. Once the ball is balanced in its starting position, it's easy to start rolling it around the tracks. By the time you've learned the different passageways, you'll realize that even though it's easy to play, all the different ways of moving around are hard to master! (From Advert description)

This game is excellent in increasing cognitive skills, spatial reasoning, and physical dexterity. For this game you can choose to race yourself, the clock or someone else. This board game is for 6 years old and upwards.
