Board games are definitely a favourite in our house . We have the biggest collection going and we love adding to it too- especially if it’s something a little different.

I was lucky enough to be given the brain box ROALD Dahl board game at blogon to take home and test out with the girls. We are all big Roald Dahl fans - especially Alessia and I,  and she couldn’t wait to try it out .

The game includes the board , a dice , a timer and the question cards. The question cards are in 8 different coloured sets. All with a Roald  Dahl story : James and the giant peach, The Twits, Matilda ,BFG ,Charlie and the chocolate factory, The witches , Fantastic Mr Fox and George’s marvellous medicine.

The question cards are double sided- one side has a picture and a sentence and on the other side is questions from 1 to 6.The aim of the game is to collect a card from each of the story suits.


Each player takes it in turns to roll the dice . The number on the dice not only gives you your moving number for the board but also the number on the card that will be your question, make sense?.

One you roll the dice , you move your marker on the board to the story that you need to collect , pick a card out of the story pack and then turn the timer round and study the picture and read the sentence out loud.

Once your time is up the player next to you will read out your question relating to the picture/text you have just seen. Sound easy right?

It’s not as easy as it seems and Alessia and I got more than one question wrong when playing. You think you know the answer or you’ve not studied the whole picture! :)

This has got to be one of the best games we have played in such a long time and we get it out almost every weekend. It is so much fun and definitely a family game .

It’s great for getting the kids to improve on their observation and memory skills.We absolutely love it !The game retails at £9.99 and can be purchased from places like Amazon .
