We have loved BrainBox games for quite a long time and were excited when they sent us their newest addition to review. BrainBox Bounce are fast paced card games with a range of themes. We were sent the Animals version and couldn’t wait to get playing.
BrainBox Bounce is aimed at children aged seven and above however, we soon found that by modifying the gameplay slightly even LP and Little Man could really enjoy the game. There are two ways to play BrainBox Bounce – the first being a memory game where each player has a card which they look at and try to memorise. Each card contains a really nice image of a certain animal in it’s natural habitat to study and learn from.
The cards are then passed to the next player along and each player is asked a question from the reverse of their card, testing their memory. The questions are really varied with things like how many of a certain animal are in the picture, were the animals eyes open and what colour were they.
The play moves quickly around the players and it’s a really fun and varied game to play. Gameplay can take anything from a few minutes to a lot longer – if you have a lot of rounds – and so it’s the perfect game to play no matter how much time you have available.
The second way of playing is to sort each of the cards into pairs – as there are two of each animal – and you can then play spot the difference. Each pair has eight differences and the children enjoyed spotting the differences together – although not the conventional way of playing the game.
LP and Little Man loved playing BrainBox Bounce and as a family we really enjoyed it. This would be a great game to play as a family with any age children or for slightly older children to play amongst themselves.
BrainBox Bounce has an RRP of £5.99
Disclosure: We were sent the above game for the purpose of this review however all opinions are my own.
