It’s no secret that we like playing games as a family, and sometimes, we like to play something aimed at grown ups instead of playing what Miss A wants to play all the time. We have been playing a new game from Drumond
The game is centred around all things British with the aim of triggering the brain with plenty of information, facts that deep down you know you know about Britain, but you may forget about them as you don’t use the information every day.
The Best of British is a board game with a slight difference. You have a circular board to go around, but there is no dice to use, just question cards that have four different colours on them with various questions. To play, you start on the start space and receive a question from your opponent or opposing team.
The red question is asked first. If you answer this correctly you move your counter forward on the board to the next red space. You are then asked the light blue question and if answered correctly, move to the next light blue space o the board. This means that sometimes you may end up moving a lot of spaces just by answering one question correctly.
As soon as you answer a question incorrectly then you move is over and the opposing team takes their go. The questions are on cards which cover a variety of styles and subject surrounding Britain. You may get asked a question to identify a certain type of bread, or you may be asked a question such as “Who does Del Boy call “plonker”?”
Some of the questions you will know the answer to immediately, and others will leave you baffled I assure you, but it’s a great way of refreshing your memory, and also learning new facts that you may not have already known about Britain.
The winner or winning team are the first to reach the middle of the board and answer a bonus question. I guarantee you will be puzzled and laughing during this game as the competitive streak you never knew you had comes out. There are so many question cards included in the game that you could play this over and over without seeing a repeat question. Well worth the £29.99 retail value.
