We're a family who loves board games - for as long as I can remember, every family get-together resulted in my Nana's Trivial Pursuit being taken out of the cupboard and the epic game-playing began! Every Christmas was marked by a party, with "bring a bottle and a board game" one of the pre-requisites.... it's still etched in my brain that my cousin was terrified of the masks worn in the "Doh Nutters" game! Anyway, I digress...
Paul Lamond Games kindly sent us the board game "QI" - quite obviously based on the successful but very difficult BBC quiz programme of the same name!
The game play is based around a board with coloured and numbered squares - advancing with correct answers and possibly taking massive jumps back with incorrect answers (I am the voice of experience on this one!) But, the twist is that the player that reaches the highest or LOWEST score on the board wins! There is hope for me yet!
We played with 4 adult players and the game seemed to end quite quickly, so a larger board or longer game option would be constructive criticism.... but then you can always play it again as the questions would be more than likely different! I think after a few glasses of wine, the logic behind the answers would definitely be questionable!
This game is for 3 - 6 players and suitable for ages 12 years to Adult. It's available from all good board game shops, such as Amazon.
Paul Lamond Games make a great range of games for all ages and occasions - pop over to their Facebook page here and keep upto date with new products and reviews from other bloggers.
This will definitely be a well-used game making an appearance post-dinner at our future family gatherings! Look out for their other games....
