There are times when you only need to look at a box and the title of a game to know it will be a hit with kids. Og on the Bog, a new game from Drumond Park, is one such game. A monster and a toilet – that was more than enough to have Monkey in giggles before we’d even opened the box.
Og on the Bog is aimed at children aged 5 years and over, can be played with 2-4 players and requires 3xAA batteries which are not included with the game.
The game comprises – Og on his Bog, 12 toilet rolls, pole and base, spinner and instructions. My only comment on this is I wish the toilet rolls came in a resealable bag, as I can see them getting easily lost once this game is unpacked.
Follow the easy instructions to put the pole and base in place and secure the Bog in the correct way. Younger children may find it a bit tricky to fold the Bog up correctly to start with. The pole and base can be easily removed when game play is completed, to store back in the box. Once you turn the game on you will hear Og snoring away.
Each player is given one toilet roll to start and the youngest player begins. The idea is to be the first player to collect 4 toilet rolls (3 if 4 players are playing) without disturbing Og on the Bog.
If the spinner lands on a Red X it means the player has made a noise, Og is likely to wake up, and play moves straight to the next player. If you land on the hand holding the roll, then you can steal a roll from another player and if you land on the Green Tick then you can try to steal a roll from Og!
That might sound easy, but it’s not just a case of taking a roll from the pole. You have to push the front step down to see if you’ve been quiet enough not to disturb Og. If he says anything – run!, your turn is over, and play moves on. If he grunts or farts (of yes, this game made Monkey laugh, A LOT!) then you can try to remove a roll from Og’s stash. But be warned if Og shouts out whilst you are trying to steal the roll, you have to drop it back on the poll and run, your turn is over. But if you’re lucky, he might just grunt or fart and you can keep the toilet roll, before play moves on.
But that’s not all, should Og provide the ultimate Monkey entertainment and have a massive fart during your turn (this is a game for children) his Bog will explode you must return 2 of your rolls to his pole and play passes on. Put the Bog back together, and continue.
Og on the Bog has provided a lot of entertainment since he took up residence in our house. Priced at £22.99, I can see this game being on lots of Christmas present wish lists this year.
