The Best of British Review and Giveaway

I could not think of a better game for us to review during our traditional caravan holiday, hubbie and I were glad of some entertainment when it was time to bring the boys back home to unwind.  


The Best of British Game (RRP £29.99) was simple to set up so we could crack on with the game straight away!  Nothing worse than having to plough through a game-playing tome before you can get to the pleasurable part.

As there was only the two of us playing we could not open up the question to the other team we just took it in turns between ourselves, eldest was a bit too young at just 8 as it is aimed at 12+, although saying that he probably would have been more knowledgeable than us in certain area’s.

Actually I was quite glad it was only the pair of us though as we quickly realised we had very vague history knowledge so struggled on those types of questions.  It might have been quite embarrassing if we had been with a grown up know it all, but when it came to certain subjects hubbie and I thrived, I will confess those areas were mainly linked to food!  But hubbie and I are led by our tummies so that’s to be expected really, our pieces began moving round the board when it was about chocolate bars, puddings and sweets!


Regardless of the gaps in our knowledge we still really enjoyed this game, it’s a great way to learn more about Britain and you will find certain questions you have no problems with, as the question base is vast covering lots of different topics.  That’s what makes it such an interesting game; you can learn so many new things.


If you want to get your hands on the game you can find the stockists here or alternatively you can try your luck at winning your own copy by filling out the form below by the 5th of July.
