Eldest and I had a try of this game and we were both impressed, it was lots of fun to play. It was simple enough to set up, eldest enjoyed getting the flamingos and crocodiles into place ready. The game pieces were of a decent quality so I know this game will survive us returning to it frequently!
Round 1 we were a little off mark, the life buoys to save the flamingos were flying across the room nowhere near the actual poor creatures we were meant to help save!!! By round 2 and 3 we had gained a little more skill and were actually on target a couple of times – although when I say on target we were mainly glad just to be landing on the board!
When we finally got our first flamingo we were absolutely delighted!
Next time we will play with youngest and hubbie too so that we have the advantage of having had a practice already! But I can imagine with four players at the same time it gets a little crazy, as all the life buoys are being launched at the same time, getting in the way of others and knocking them off into different directions.
Eldest kept saying how much he liked the game. It definitely is a good one to have, because it’s easy to explain and get playing, but still offers enough challenge to be engaging and maintain the interest of children 5+. At that age they can be easily distracted and lack the concentration for a game with lots of rules, this being all about action will appeal to that age!
