If I have learnt anything about taking an eight
Paul Lamond have a new range of Travel games to combat the boredness when travelling. We have been trying out a couple of the games in preparation of the long six weeks holidays whether we stay at home or go away.
Kids Trivia Plus is a board game in a tin suitable for children aged seven and up. This game is more suitable to playing whilst on a flight as there is a board and counters that may roll around in the car, but in a row of three on an aeroplane it would work perfectly.
The game focuses on a short playing board with a selection of four choices when you land on squares of the board. You may be asked a current trivia question such as “name three sports personalities with a surname beginning with B”, or you may have to choose your own answer to a riddle where there is no right or wrong answer. When this happens it’s down to the remaining players to decide if your answer was good enough to continue your go by throwing the dice again.
You may be presented with a joke which is funny as the other player frantically try to think of what the answer could be. The fourth option is a theoretical question which again there is no right or wrong answer and your fate in game play depends on what your opponents think of your answer.
We found this game was funny as we all tried to think of the answers to the jokes, and it was amusing to see what people’s thoughts were to theoretical questions. The game itself doesn’t last too long, but there are more than enough question cards to keep going through plenty of games before being repeated.
Once you have finished it all packs up into its own tin which makes it great for packing to travel.
Are We There Yet? is a card game designed for two or more players. This game will work better in the car, as you can’t see a lot from an aeroplane window apart from clouds so you may be playing this one a whilst on the plane. Each player is dealt five cards which are worth differing amounts of points. The first person to spot the item on their card must shout out and they can receive their points. This game can last for a set amount of time or as long as the journey lasts, it’s really up to you.
Both of these games have great potential for entertaining children when travelling. They both have their own qualities for different modes of transport as well which is great.
