I was delighted when Dig In! (RRP £19.99) arrived as Drumond Park games are always a huge hit for my boys. This is the perfect present to unwrap on Christmas day, simple to set-up and play, yet demanding and entertaining enough to keep everyone happy from 8 to 80.
It’s such a frantic game as you desperately try and find the items like rabbit, dog, and teddy on your card first. It certainly improves your powers of observation looking for your six objects and your reaction speed as you try and grab as many of them as you can on your turn. You can use both hands so have a good rummage around and see if you can find any of your six.
You can feel the tension rising as you hunt through the coloured objects knowing your 15-second allocated hunting time goes far too fast. The pace of the game is very rapid. If no one wins a round you all have a turn digging this can be a bit more of a squeeze (and adds to the challenge!).
But when you’re not digging in, keep your eye on those coloured items so you can put your next 15-second slot to your best advantage.
No day dreaming, focus on that bowl at ALL times, the previous player might unearth one of your objects if your lucky and when your time starts you can grab it straight away. I like this aspect of the game, as no child gets bored because they have something to actively do in between turns.
If you find your six items you get to keep the card, whilst the first to collect three cards is the overall winner of the game.
