Guinness World Record Challenges - Review!

As a family we do like to play board games over Christmas. We of course have to play Monopoly and a few others but this year we have another to add to the mix. 

Guinness World Record Challenges puts players knowledge about Guinness World Records to the test and challenges opponents to demonstrate some nifty record breaking skills using everyday household items!

The game is for 2 to 5 players and is recommended for ages 8 and over.

Inside the box you get a game board, 600 Guinness World Records questions, 20 challenges, a booklet of guidelines for challenges, a notebook, a ping-pong ball, 5 counters and a dice.

There are several items which are not included but they are easily found around the house. Things like 10 pairs of socks, a mobile phone with a timer on, coins, paper clips, tea spoons, a bottle of water, glasses and A4 paper.

The aim of the game is to cross the finish line with 3 challenge cards in your possession to be the winner! 

You roll the dice and from one of the question cards answer the question that coincides with the number you have just rolled. If you get it right you move!

 If you roll the dice and it lands on one of the colours you go to that square and this is where the fun really starts! The challenge cards! You then have to choose between picking up a challenge card or challenging another player who already has that colour card to achieve a better score!

If you beat the minimum shown on the card or beat the record set by another player you keep the challenge card, then you are one step closer to winning!

The challenges are a lot of fun. There is everything from bottle flipping, star jumping, coin throwing or stacking, building towers with cards or sticking spoons to your face!

This is a really fun game. It is easy to get to grips with the rules and it is great for a bit of a giggle. It would make a fab game to play after Christmas dinner with all of the family!

It can take around 45 minutes to an hour to play which is a fantastic length of time. It's not the type of game where you get half way through and get bored. It is fun all the way through!

Guinness World Record Challenges is available at toy retailers online and department stores. I have seen it on sale for around £15.00.

We were sent this game free of charge in exchange for this blog post.
