LP love playing games and are really starting to get into turn based games so when we were sent Don’t Rock The Boat from University Games to review they couldn’t wait to play – especially as they are both obsessed with pirate ships at the moment. It’s a really great family game.
Don’t Rock The Boat is really simple to set up, with masts being attached to the boat and a giant wave being put under the boat. It comes with lots of penguins and the aim of the game is to balance all your penguins on the boat without rocking the boat and making them fall over board.
LP and Little Man loved trying to balance the penguins on the boat and the game kept them occupied for quite a while. I’m sure as they get older there will be more balancing going on and less boat rocking! For now they are both happy watching the penguins dive overboard and then try and balance them on again.
Don’t Rock The Boat is a really robust game that children will love and it’s a great family game. It really helps build hand eye coordination and LP has loved trying to get just the right balance on the boat. Although it looks like just a really fun game to start with it’s obvious watching the children play that they are learning so much from it – and I know that it will be played with for years.
Don’t Rock The Boat has an RRP of £14.99
