The blurb:
Big Game Hunters Giant Snakes and Ladders game takes the traditional game of Snakes and Ladders to a totally new dimension. Giant Snakes and Ladders puts you in the heart of the game, where you move up the ladders and down the snakes after rolling the dice. We've also added some new Snakes and Ladders features for extra fun! The Giant Snakes and Ladders set contains a giant playing mat 3m square (10ft square), 8 pegs and a giant snakes and ladders inflatable dice.

Initial Thoughts: The kids were so excited when this box arrived that they ripped open the box. This was great for them (excitement at getting a new toy) but not so for me as I wanted to store the game back into the box after use so I had to sellotape it back together. The game rules and instructions are on the box too, so it's worth keeping hold of. So we removed the playing mat and dice along with the pegs.

The mat was actually bigger than I expected which meant that this game would be a real 'feature' at an outdoor garden party when kids are coming round. My two couldn't wait to get on the squares to start their game but somehow hubby and I managed to start a game first- nostalgia took over! It's been years since we played this game, and we'd forgotten how much fun it could be!

I Liked: The mat was really thick - great quality, like what you'd expect on the floor of a tent. Having pegs to pin it in place is a great feature for windy days, but we didn't need to use them as the mat was so heavy on its own. It seemed really hard-wearing and I liked how the inflatable dice was so light- it stirred up more fun when it looked like the dice would land on a certain number then it ticked over onto another number! Shreiks and groans all round as our competitive streaks came out and I liked the extra squares that were on the board saying 'stand on one leg or go backwards next turn' which added extra fun to the game.

I wasn't Keen: What's not to like? It's a game that has stood the test of time for generations, brought into the 21st century by taking it outdoors and maxing up the size!

Overall: This is a great game for family fun and would make an enjoyable addition to a kids garden party, to offer as an alternative to the trampoline!

Thanks for visiting! You are looking hot today! x
