Board Games We Love Part 1

Board Games We Love Part 1

Board Games form a huge part of our family time.  We love to just shut the doors, turn the TV off and chill with a board game.  Which board games are our favourites though?

Crocodile Dentist

Crocodile Dentist is a fun and entertaining game that is loved by kids and adults of all ages.  It is recommended for 1-4 players aged 4-7… BUT Comma enjoys playing it just as much as Princess Pants does and he isn’t 2 until March.

The one big bonus of Crocodile Dentist is the lack of loose parts.  Gameplay is simple; each of the players are require to push down a tooth with the goal of finding the tooth that is bothering crocodile.  If you find the sore tooth though, you risk getting bitten by the grumpy crocodile.

Crocodile Dentist is available from most toy retailers and is priced at £14.99

Monopoly 80th Anniversary Edition

Monopoly is one of our favourite family games – We love it!  The Monopoly 80th Anniversary Edition is no different.  For 2 – 8 players with a recommended age of 8+ it is fun for all the family.  Despite the recommended age being 8+, 6 year old Princess Pants has been playing for 2 years now. 


We all know the rules of Monopoly, but the 80th Anniversary Edition features tokens from 1930’s right up to the present day; traditional money and wooden houses and hotels. 

Monopoly 80th Anniversary Edition is available from all good toy retailers and priced between £13.49 – £25.

SSHH! Don’t Wake Dad!

SSHH! Don’t Wake Dad! is a great game from the ever popular Drumond Park.  Recommend for 2-4 players aged 5+, it’s a fun and engaging game.

Spin the arrow, tip toe past the bed and try to get that yummy chocolate cake from the fridge in the kitchen.  But, you have to be careful not to wake Dad!  You could knock something over or trip up and your noise could be the one to wake snoring Dad!  If you wake him, you will need to go right back to the start to try again.

SSHH! Don’t Wake Dad is available from a variety of retailers and costs £19.99.
