Drumond Park: Bang On review & giveaway
Published October 21, 2017 by Bizzimummy
Today we have a brand new game from the lovely people at Drumond Park.
This is Bang On. One of those very fast quick thinking type games which keeps everyone interested.
There’s a board, a machine that resembles one of those arcade weight banging machines, lots of cards and a hammer.
The object of the game – get around the board to the finish space.
Playing the game – Bang On is intended as a team playing game. There are only two playing pieces, so two single players could play if they so wished but it’s better in small teams. The non playing team draws a card and dependant on what colour space of the board the other team are on, one of the three questions are asked.
The Bang On unit gets banged with a hammer on the first answer from the playing team. The team members then shout out all their answers with a Bang of the hammer for each one, thus causing the banger to rise and give extra seconds. Once the banger drops to the bottom, or ten answers are given in time, the team then move the playing piece the number of answers given and then play passes to the other team.
Along the board are various spaces with words. Landing on one of these can either help or hinder play. These include “Extra Bang”, gag a player and bust spaces. The bust spaces will have numbers and this means the playing team must give at least that many answers to be-able to move along the board.
Challenge cards are available to be used by the non playing teams if they dispute any of the answers given.
It uses a lot of brain power and really got us thinking about some of the questions.
When it’s just me a my children playing, Jordanna tends to team up with me and Ryan will help Izebella out; who by the way has no problems joining in with some of the questions even tho she is only 5 years old. The game being designed for 8 year old and upwards, so still a few years above her age ability level.
The banger unit needs batteries but that’s really the only setting up that is required. This game costs approximately £27.99 from Drumond park.
