I am glad that Drumond Park have started launching new games because we had got to the stage we owned just about every single one, which obviously shows just how good they are, but we were ready to face a fresh challenge! Rattle Me Bones (RRP £22.99) is that game indeed, something to keep you all on the edge of your seats!!! So if your children are aged 5+ breathe a sigh of relief you now have a NEW Drumond Park game for their Christmas wish lists – one without a tome of instructions to deceiver come Christmas morning!!!
Now my boys are eight and six they do like to go off and play board games together, the other day they got a stack out and worked their way through them whilst I put the mammoth pile of washing away (life as a mum is nothing short of being rock and roll!). Thankfully Rattle Me Bones is another they can play without needing any help, it’s exciting but uncomplicated so if you need time to get on with the boring tasks they can play without supervision.
It does get your pulse racing as you try and stealthfully take Cap’n Boney most prized possessions (including off his skeleton – including a Dagger, a Sceptre, a Medal, a Gauntlet, a Necklace, a Purse and a Watch). If whilst stealing one of his treasures you hesitate or you’re not quite sneaky enough then heaven help you he will “rattle his bones” rather dramatically!
It’s full of suspense as you quickly try and master your motor skills making sure you take those “spoils” as delicately as possible. The spinner lets you know what coloured item you have to collect, so you cannot necessarily go for the one that looks the easiest to pinch! You can make it even more fun and don on your pirate clothes (raid the fancy dress box!) and speak like an authentic buccaneer (say landlubber, walk the plank, “arrrr” “you scurvy seadog!” on repeat!). But even without all those fancy extra’s you can be happily occupied here for ages.
