LOGO Billionaire Review and Competition

Eldest was keen to play this game, but as he is 6 and youngest is 4 and its pitched for children 8+ I did worry they would not quite manage it.  But after much insistence I thought there was no harm trying anyway.  We played the apprentice version of the game, which is easiest way to play LOGO Billionaire, so better suited to the age of my children.


They made excellent apprentices as they got the hang of the game very quickly.  Youngest was thrilled there was a lion industries playing piece and even a lion bar brand card!  He is completely hooked on lions.


I was surprised how risk adverse my youngest was, given he is so wild and boisterous in every other aspect of his life I was not expecting that at all.  But when it came to finding the value of his company, he was a very serious young man.  He would literally let one card be turned from the risky business deck and stick with that.  He really did not want to end up with the BUST card so his companies were quite low valued but safe in that at least they were valued something!

Pleased with his stash of LOGO cash!


I thought the addition of the risky cards was quite an exciting element of the game.  You could feel your pulse racing hoping you did not reveal the bust card next.  In a way you want to keep going to maximise the value of your company and become a LOGO billionaire first.

The boys liked the brand cards for the game, it was a novelty seeing ones they are so familiar with like mini milks, fruit shoots and Tango.  It is a good game to introduce some business terms to children.  As they get a bit older I will certainly give the executive side of the game a try with them, but for now I think we will develop as apprentices and not stretch too far just yet! 

Visit the website for more information but before you dash off I have one copy of LOGO Billionaire (RRP £24.99) to giveaway to enter please complete the rafflecopter below by the 7th of March.
