Sort it Out! Review

I love the handy storage size perfect for taking away on holidays.  Not only is it a compact game it is also easy to play, no complicated instructions to get confused by!  Just open the tin and its all-quite self-explanatory.  I would have preferred the University Games Spot the Difference game as this something both boys enjoy doing (but least that’s another for the Christmas list!), and in the meantime Sort it Out! will keep hubbie and I occupied on holiday.  In the evening when they go to sleep its something we can do to wile away our time and perhaps get more knowledgeable in the process… we may be Mensa material by the end of it you never know!  Stranger things have happened.  Let the battle of the brains begin!  I just hope I make some lucky guesses…

Although eldest is only six he has shown interest in this game (its an 8 plus one), he has an avid interest in Wildlife, so enjoys expanding his knowledge in that respect.  It is quite interesting learning some of the facts, like elephant daily poo weighs in at 110kg (3 standard house bricks was only 12kg so it’s a lot of poo!).  The facts are across lots of different topics, human body, wildlife like I mentioned and entertainment.  Then you are allocated points for how many you place in the correct order.  

When you think you know what order they should be in, you just slot in the coloured markers.  Then you can just turn the card round to see if you got it right.  Even if you get hardly any points, least you do learn some fascinating facts.
