It was such a treat having a pink gift-wrapped bundle of games arrive from John Adams.
The PR was very thoughtful and included some pig chocolates, wolfed down at speed by the boys and a pencil topper. The pig USB stick was promptly claimed by hubbie, as he seems to like collecting different USB sticks, the more novel the better! Once the package had been thoroughly investigated we moved onto actually playing the games.
It was a rainy day so these fun games were just the ticket to entertain the boys when they were stuck indoors and a little fed up. Pig Goes Pop! (£19.99) youngest adores playing.
It’s simple to get the hang of; they can easily play on their own without adult supervision. My five year old and his four-year-old friend could reset the game when it ended and start all over again time after time. It’s lovely seeing them play board games minus my help now. If I need to get on with the boring chores I know they can amuse themselves. Plus youngest just loves the pig itself!
Pig Out! once set up was another game the boys were only too happy to play on there own. It is quite comical seeing everyone transformed into pigs with funny snouts. Here are my three little pigs...
It’s quite a fast paced game, if you roll PIG OUT you have your snout in the trough and try and catch as much of the food pieces are possible in your snout until your turn finishes (when the next person gets PIG OUT on the dice!). So we were frantically passing the dice around our little group to try and get daddy out of the trough as soon as possible! He does tend to hog the food in real life so it’s suited him being in the trough for so long… it’s quite tricky to get the food into your snout, so you do need to become skilled at snaffling up the pieces!
The little food pieces (lemon, orange, apple and potato) that come with the game appealed to my boys, they have been playing shop with them after they finished playing the actual game! So its great value for £19.99 as my boys have used the set in so many ways.
I can see these games making a few Christmas lists! Lucky for you guys I also have both the games to giveaway here, simply fill out the form below by the 26th of November if you would like a chance of winning.John Adams PIG Competition
