Senor Pepper – The ‘Must Have’ Grab & Go Game

It’s come to that time of year when board games suddenly rise in popularity as families sit down around the table to enjoy some festive fun by playing their latest purchases.

We were recently sent Senor Pepper, a brand new, fast-paced family board game from University Games to rate and review.

What’s The Aim Of The Game?

The aim of the game is to be the first player to grab hold of the correct amount and colour of peppers and it’s not easy!

Flip your card over, count the senor peppers required and get grabbing! As I said, it’s far from easy as there are a few catches: there aren’t enough peppers for every player, two colours may cancel each other out and players also need to avoid the trap to win the cactus juice as a reward!…

Hanging Out With The Hangrees

With it being the summer holidays, I have been willing to do almost anything to keep the kids entertained and happy. I’m not a huge fan of mess or goop so I must admit I was a little dubious when agreeing to review ‘The Hangrees‘ – the latest range of parody snack-based, slime creation to hit the market.

The kids, however, were overjoyed at the chance to get their hands a little sticky and of course to take a look at some new toys.

Snack Attack

We received a large box filled with goodies including a range of snacks, each wrapped in comedy packaging: Doritos became ‘Diaritos’, Reeces became ‘Reek’s’, Pringles became ‘Poo-ringles’ and a Burger King pack was renamed as ‘Booger King’.…

Crazy & Creative Card Games: SmartAss, Man Bites Dog & Switcheroo Review

With the summer holidays only six weeks away, I’ve already started drafting out packing lists – top of which is entertainment to keep the kids happy during their travels.

Whilst I’m quite happy to allow the children a little screentime during the flight, I tend to prefer that they steer clear of technology whilst traveling to avoid motion sickness and because wheres the fun in being glued to a gadget?!

University Games very kindly sent us three card games: Man Bites Dog, Switcheroo and SmartAss (which I have previously featured and reviewed upon this blog) to rate and review. Each of these games share similarities in style as they require creative, thoughtful and imaginative play, thus are ideal entertainment for both children and adults.…
