Our kids often ask for games for Christmas, to be played on family game night. We haven’t had a game night in a while and that is something that is going to change. I miss it. The kids miss it and it’s time to start having it weekly or monthly, again. A new game that I found for our youngest to be able to play is the 3 Little Pigs Board Game.
I received a complimentary game as a member of Us Family Guide. All opinions are strictly my own.
I’m giving this game to our youngest daughter as a Christmas gift but I wanted to check it out, first. So I opened it and took some photos for you to see what is included.
This game is for ages 4+ so it is a little young for our youngest but after looking at the directions, it looks like it is actually going to be fun for her to play. I’m looking forward to playing it with her!
The 3 Little Pigs Board Game includes:
- 1 soft and squeEZable big, bad wolf that actually huffs and puffs
- 3 plastic stands.
- 3 pig cards.
- 3 houses of straw.
- 3 houses of sticks.
- 1 house of brick.
- 1 die + sticker sheet.
How to Play:
- Each player chooses one of the pigs to play and gets a house plastic stand of that pig’s color.
- Players take turns rolling the die. To get started building your house, a player must rest roll a ‘pig’ on the game die. After a player has successfully collected their pig, they try to build their houses in order of the well-known fairytale.
- When a player rolls a wolf on the die, he takes the soft and squeezable Big, Bad Wolf, and tries to blow down one of the other players’ houses, causing that player to have to start all over again.
The wolf is really soft and squeezable. I have a feeling our favorite part is going to be squeezing the wolf and trying to knock everything down. We may not get much actual game time in, trying to blow all the houses down!
It seems like it is easy enough to play but still fun. All of the pieces are well made. The cardboard pieces are very sturdy and the graphics are bright and cheery.
I’m looking forward to our next game night and playing this game with our little girl!
