Dobble *Review and Giveaway*


When you want a few minutes out of the summer sun, a refreshing drink and family game is a great way to enjoy a little shade. We received Dobble to review and we were all quickly hooked with this fast thinking, reflex based card game.


 




Included within the box is a metal storage tin, 55 circular cards and an instructions booklet. I loved how compact it was as it doesn't take up much space in the cupboard and it is ideal for popping in your bag when you go on holiday or even over to friends.


Each card, which is good quality and not yet bent or torn during play, has 8 images on which are easily recognisable to children and include a clock, pencil, ice cube, tree and cat. The object of the game is to match an image on your card with the other cards as quickly as possible. There are 5 mini games you can choose from to vary play all of which are very quick to learn and easy to complete.


With each game lasting under 15 minutes, usually a lot quicker, children will be kept entertained without the worry of them getting bored!
 


Minxy and Jamster have played this many times already by themselves, although we have also played as a family too, and the Mr and I have played alone too when the Mini Mes have been in bed! It was great to see how quickly the children could identify a matching image (they were faster than the adults at times) and it's a great way to build fine motor and observation skills.


 
There are over 50 symbols across the cards!
 
The game is suitable for children aged 6+, for 2-8 players and we found it simple yet fun.
This will be coming away with us camping and abroad!
You can purchase a set for RRP £12.99.
