What our experts think
This twist on the traditional game of Dominoes encourages children to use strategy and numeracy skills to win the game. Our testers were keen to play and particularly enjoyed the tiles with pictures of dragons and sea creatures.
Our testers found the instructions a bit tricky to understand and ended up searching online for a video tutorial on how to play, where all then became clear. Our younger testers needed a little assistance at times with the strategy to get points, but we found that the game was great for helping them learn these tactics. We particularly liked that the children were required to practice their addition and multiplication when scoring. The shorter gameplay was also great for keeping children engaged who otherwise might get bored in a longer board game setting.
