first review as University Games
Official Bloggers was for the rather wacky UFO Alarm (RRP £24.99); it captured
my boys attention straight away! The
box looks very appealing and it’s exciting you have to watch out for the

It’s an unusual concept but very

With it being so close to Christmas I thought I would
quickly share our thoughts on the game, in case you wanted to add one to your growing
Christmas pile, if you do it is easy enough to get hold of with it being
available to buy from Argos (£16.49), Toys R Us (£18.74), Amazon (£16.08) and
Tesco (£20.72), I have included the current listed prices as of the 15th
of December so you can decide where to purchase it.
To play 3 x AAA batteries are
required (not included) so do make sure
you stock up in advance so you can enjoy the game as soon as you unwrap
it! The winner is the person with
playing pieces left on the board; it’s quite tense, as you never know what your
next roll of the dice will do!
