Review | Super Ski Jump Game From Drumond Park

Going on a skiing holiday is something Hubby has been desperate to do again for years. He is yet to convince Abby that she wants to try a skiing holiday however. We were recently sent the Super Ski Jump game from Drumond Park, which has been a great way to bring back the conversation about a family skiing holiday one day.

Super Ski Jump game is a table top game rather than a board game. It will take up your whole table so make sure you have plenty of room for all the fun and antics you’re about to have.

A game for 2-4 players that is played and scored over three different rounds, with the aim of the game to be able to send your player down the ramp and score big points by doing that perfect landing.

Inside the box, the game pieces aren’t already assembled due to the size of the completed game area. The instructions are quick and clear making it a quick game to set up when you decide to play.

The pieces are all plastic, yet sturdy, and I found the slope pieces fitted together well without bending in the middle. Your slope can be set at different gradients, so be prepared for your ski character to swoop down the slope when he gets going.

You can choose from four different characters, each on a different piece of ski equipment. Choose from skis, sledge, snowboard or bath tub. The characters also have different poses, so this may impact on your aerodynamics when swooping down the slopes. As each character can be changed to suit your chosen ski equipment, you will have fun trying to choose the best for your scores.

Gameplay begins with the youngest player who selects their character and choice of skis. Placing your character at the top of the slope, the dial is twisted at the bottom of the slope to set your skier off down the slope.

Time is right to raise the lever when your skier arrives to sent them jumping through the air. Will you land upright near the end of the slope?

We had quite a giggle playing Super Ski Jump as it took us ages to be able to master the timing and getting our skier to actually land anywhere but on his head for ages.

Scoring is based on the number of times your skier flips in the air and how they land. Record your scored on the game sheets provided and after every player has had three turns see who the winner is.

I love that essentially it can be a short game of three rounds, but actually we were doing our three rounds, and going again and again to try to perfect the landings and flips.

Each piece of equipment is worth different points as it’s easier to flip and land with some of the vessels than it is with others.

Super Ski Jump Game from Drumond Park has an rrp of Ā£19.99.

    My husband is doing the same as yours, he went as a child a few times and loved it, our daughters seem to think a holiday is only a holiday if there is a pool of some kind! I’d quite happily go mind you and spend all my time by a log fire with hot chocolate while every one else enjoyed the slopes… now that sounds like a holiday!
