I’m always on the lookout for games that are easy to transport and quick to play, and we were recently sent one from Coiledspring Games that ticks all the boxes for us. Splash! – a new game for all the family to enjoy is aimed at players aged 6 years and over and it lots of fun.
Splash! is designed to be played with 2-4 players and playtime typically lasts for 10-20 minutes. The game comes with a storage tin, 30 wooden playing pieces ib 5 different shapes and 6 colours, 14 water drop tokens and an instruction leaflet.
The aim of Splash! is to either be the first player to play all of their pieces without toppling the tower or to be the first player to collect 3 water drops.
Divide the play pieces equally between players before play begins.
Player one passes a playing piece to player two to place on the table to start the tower off. Then player two gives one of their pieces to the player on their left to place onto the tower. The piece given must be either the same colour or shape as the last uncovered piece of the tower.
If the tower remains standing after the piece has been placed then play continues clockwise. If the tower falls then the player who forced the person to try to place the last piece on the top of the tower receives a water droplet token.
The highest remaining tower on the table is used as the base for a new tower construction and the player who caused the original tower to collapse adds up to three fallen pieces to his pile. Any other pieces are placed back in the storage tin. The player who collapsed the tower then passes a playing piece to the next player to continue building the tower.
We’ve had so much fun with Splash! over the last week. It’s been a great way for us to forget about things going on in the world as well as giving my son some light relief from school work. Splash! really is a game for all the family to enjoy.
Splash! is one of those games that would be great to take on holiday when the world returns to normal. The storage tin is easily transportable and it’s definitely we’d take away with us. We’ve been playing it a lot recently, it’s fun, quick to play and a great way to switch off from everything else.
