We are board game fanatics in this family, hosting regular board game nights and passing the love onto Max. So when we were asked if we wanted to review Dobble Kids, of course we couldn't say no!
Many of you are probably aware of the adult version of Dobble, a quick thinking game that keeps you on your toes. But this kid friendly version is the perfect way to get kids hooked on board games.
Inside the amazing storage tin is a selection of 30 cards with 6 animals on each card. There is a total of 30 animals in total but only 1 animal will match with any other card. Your job is to match your cards up the fastest.
The animals are clear and also adorable. Each of them are different sizes but all easily recognisable. The main idea of the game is to be the fastest to call out a matching pair, but the instruction guide gives a great selection of mini games based on various skill levels. This is great as Max grasped the basic game immediately so we could start to challenge him by adding other simple rules. Our favourite mini game is the Tower Of Doom, think snap but with Dobble Kids cards and you get the idea!
When his best mate came over we did a few trial runs and tweaked the game a tad so it was a bit easier. That's the great thing about this game, there is so much flexibility you can almost make your own rules for your own super mini game!
Our favourite thing about Dobble Kids is definitely the portability. We've taken it over to family and friends houses and even out for something to eat as it's small enough to fit in my handbag but big enough to be kid friendly.
Of course Max's favourite thing to do is win! But we've done some great learning through this game too, he's learnt about different animals, their colourings and counting as we've explored different ways to play it.
Dobble Kids is a great game and priced at only £12.99 it means it's a bargain for hours of family fun. With the summer holidays it's the perfect time to grab it. It's available in Waterstones so there's no excuse to pick up one of our new favourite games!
