Every weekend we have a family games night. After tea we get a game out, have a laugh and just enjoy being together. On Sunday night after the dishwasher had been stacked, I brought out a new game for us to try – the Brainbox Transport Game. I had a sneaky suspicion that it would hit the spot, and I was right. It was brilliant fun for us all.
It’s a quick fire memory game. You take it in turns to pick a card and study it hard for 10 seconds. Roll the dice and answer the corresponding question on the back of the card. If you answer correctly you keep the card, get it wrong and it goes back in the pile. The person with the most cards after 5 or 10 minutes is the winner.
The box contains 55 transport cards, 1 rules card, 1 sand timer and 1 dice. The Brainbox Transport Game is suitable for ages 4+ and costs around £11.99. It’s designed in the UK and made from 70% recycled material.
The Brainbox Transport Game is brilliant if you’ve got a short amount of time for a quick game, or if you want to play round after round after round. All of the cards have different modes of transport on them; bus, plane, bulldozer, gondola, ice cream van etc.
The questions on the back of the cards test your memory of the details on the card. For example – How many people are on the bus? What colour is the car? Are there any clouds in the sky?
You can play this game on your own, or with as many people as you want. The youngest player starts, takes a card, memorises the picture for 10 seconds, then passed the card to another player. You the roll a dice to pick the question number and you have to answer the question, for example “Can you see the control tower?” If you’re right you keep the card, if you’re wrong you put it back in the pile and the next player takes their turn. Easy.
We liked a lot of things about this game. Primarily it was a lot of fun and it will be a regular at our family games nights. I liked that it was sneakily working all of our memory muscles (if there’s such a thing, but you know what I mean). I also liked that my son was as keen as mustard to read out the questions on the back of the cards. He’s not a reluctant reader, but it’s always good to see him really wanting to read to us.
The Brainbox Transport Game was a big hit. There are lots of other versions of the game if transport doesn’t float your boat (see what I did there?).
