Board games often get a bad rap because some people think they are boring or simply for children however I disagree. I am a huge board game lover. Always have been. I love the household classics like Monopoly, Yahtzee and scrabble but I am always on the lookout for new games to add to the collection. So naturally I was ecstatic when I was recently sent The LOGO Board Game to enjoy with my family these holidays. And it has been put through its paces this week.
My sister and brother-in-law joined us for a week at Christmas and after all the planning, cooking and festivities, an easy fun filled night was on the cards. I was amazed at how much notice and attention we pay to advertising. Those working in advertising are well worth their money! This game is full of everything about everything; from chocolate and tyres to cleaning products! Yes they all have logos but the LOGO Board game isn’t just about the brand logos, it is also about the items wrapped up in them.
On the box it recommends players to be aged 12+ however our 7 and 5 year olds got quite a few right which made them feel great. They loved being able to play. It was surprising because we were actually learning a few facts about the brands we know and love along the way. As I mentioned above, we have played this game a lot lately and as there so many different cards we still haven’t gotten through them all. I love that it isn’t repetitive!
When the kids were no longer playing and it was just us adults we ditched the board and just played with the cards. I know this isn’t how it is supposed to be played but we took turns reading out the cards and whoever ended up with the most cards in front of them as a result of correct guesses won the game. Whichever way you play it, you won’t be disappointed.
Are you a board game enthusiast? What is your favourite?
