We played our game after our Sunday dinner and really had a great time. It's a simple game but lots of fun. The animations are lovely, there's a lovely bright board with 39 spaces on it to move around with your goose piece. The dice is a touch to roll feature which is very clever. No more losing your dice with this game. I played with my two daughters and Grampy the first time. It really is suitable for all ages, both young and old. We loved the pop up features when you landed on certain spaces. Some sent you forward, whilst others sent you back. You could get too roll again or even miss a turn. We had lots of family fun, it was a great way to get us all together and so simple to play.
We gave the Jumbo iPieces games a huge and very well deserved 5/5. They're great fun and fantastic value for money. At just £9.99 I will definitely be looking at getting some of the other games in their range very soon. There is also Snakes & Ladders, Fishing and Ice Hockey. They all look great. I wonder which one we shall buy next?
