BrainBox Roald Dahl

I was first introduced to BrainBox games a few years ago when I won their Dinosaurs game for my son.  My son loves that game and we’ve played it countless times over the time we’ve had it.  We’re building up his collection of chapter book classics so I thought the BrainBox Roald Dahl game would work well for him.

Aimed at children aged 7 years and over, the game focuses on the classic stories of The BFG, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Matilda. The BrainBox Roald Dahl  game has been redesigned recently and is ideal to help children improve their memory and observation skills.

The game comes with a flip lid storage box, 55 double-sided playing cards, sand timer, die and rules card.

The object of the BrainBox Roald Dahl game is to look and study a card for 10 seconds and then answer a question based on which number is rolled with the die.  If you answer the question correctly you keep the card.  The player with the most cards collected after 10 minutes is the winner.
The game can be player with 2 or more players or as a 1 player game.  If you are playing by yourself, you study the card for 10 seconds, turn it over, answer each question by writing them down on a piece of paper and then turn over and check your answers.  If you get them all right, you keep the card and pull out the next to continue playing the game.

The joy of playing BrainBox Roald Dahl is that it really doesn’t matter if you haven’t read the three stories used in the game before.  The game is purely based on memorising the details on each playing card.  But it has inspired us to read Matilda, a book neither of us have read before.

Having an only child, it’s always appreciated when games can actually be played as a solo player as will as in a group, and anything that encourages my son to read whilst having fun is a winner in my eyes.

Priced at £11.99 BrainBox Roald Dahl is also a great game to take on holiday, it’s compact and easy to play on the go.  We really like the range of games and this is one is a welcome addition to our collection.  I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate link below for your reference in case you want to try it out for yourselves.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
