Our review of Brainstom’s Big Beard Battle
As you might have read, we recently went glamping. A couple of weeks previous we had been sent Big Beard Battle by Brainstorm to review. I decided to keep the game until our glamping adventure as I knew the kids would enjoy playing a fun game like this in the absence of all things techie! We are already board game fans in this house especially my oldest, he really loves them.
This game can accommodate up to four players but can be played by less players and not impact on the game. There is a little bit of pre set up work required, simply to attach the velcro dots to the beards but that takes only a couple of minutes to do.
The game itself is very simple, the aim being to grow the longest beard without it being cut or shaved off. Its so simple but so much fun, made all the funnier by the fact the Dada Fairy has an actual beard!! You start with the youngest player and spin the spinner that comes with it. The spinner determines you task, whether thats growing your own beard or shaving or cutting another players beard. The game is aimed at ages 4 and up however the littlest man (2 and half) got great fun out of it so it is really a game for all the family to take part.
Games like this are ideal for Christmas and at approx €15 not bad value at all, all the parts are very durable and well able to withstand our very own Mr Destruction.
If you too have a board game fan in your house, it a big thumbs up from us.
Note: We were sent the game for the purpose of the review however all opinion are my own or the boys where appropriate.
