If like me you look fondly back at the summer season; you
can even feel the heat and smell the barbecue if you think about it long enough, then this is the game for you!
Today I was lucky enough to receive Barbecue Party by Drumond Park to review
(RRP £19.99), the boys wasted no time in unpacking the game!
The game comes with:
- Barbecue with grilling plate
- 16 pieces of food (All with funny eyes!)
- 18 picture cards
The game itself is pitched at ages 4+, which is ideal for
little hands as you need some dexterity to use the tongs to position the food
on and off of the grill!
Each player takes it in turn to pick up a card, the player
then checks if the corresponding item of food is on the grill if it is then the
player has to carefully remove it and keep it with the card, if it’s not they
then have to carefully place it on the grill to “cook”.
The aim of the game is to be the first to collect three or
four cards and cooked food items to win (you can decide how many at the start
of the game!), but you have to be careful as if you are too clumsy or if there
is too much food on the grill, the grill explodes off of the base sending the
food flying and losing the player their card!
I am pleased to say you don’t need batteries to get the
gaming under way and the game itself feels well-made and sturdy!
Overall the games simplicity does lend itself well to the
younger members of your family but still also allowing a bit of friendly
As winter is drawing in its quite nice to have a game that
so readily reminds you of the warmer and brighter days! So click on the link to
