Rapido Game Review

We
review lots of games here but I am amazed we keep stumbling on such a variety
to engage my boys.  For anyone who
thinks board games are “bored games”, you need to think again!

Rapido is visually quite different, with a piece of rope
to mark out the area for the coloured balls and tubes for collecting, rather
than a standard board to play on.  I
think that spurned on their interest to get playing.  Youngest actually went on playing with the coloured balls and
shaking them around in the bamboo tube long after the game playing was over,
happy to amuse himself with everything in the box.

Great
fun was had with all of us trying to be the fastest, getting all our colours
according to the strips indicating which order before everyone else.  I like how there are two strips one easier
than the other, so it helps for the younger players that it is not as
difficult.
Hubbie,
youngest, eldest, his best buddy and myself all played at different times and
thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, it is the perfect game for refining our manual
dexterity.  We got better at moving our
hands with skill the longer we played.

Eldest very proud when he won:

This
game was sent to us by Eden Project and is available to buy for £20.00.  I must be honest I never knew Eden Project
had an online shop, but having browsed it repeatedly ever since, I am ear
marking lots of lovely products suitable for presents (I think my mum especially
would love the Scented Candles Gift Bag). 
The kids section is fun and educational and helps encourage a love of
nature and the outdoors.
When
you buy from Eden Project you also know your helping towards a better future,
as all their products are environmentally friendly (recycled, fairly traded or
sourced locally).  So your buying more
than a gift, you’re buying a whole way of life, a greener more sustainable one.  For example Hape who make this game use
Bamboo because it is the fastest growing wood like plant on the earth.
