Board game 23 January 2011

The night ended with Pop Up Play Shopping (DK Toys & Games) with the four of us. We had superb fun.

Rolled the 12-sided dice, where players need to recognise number and read forfeit or bonus instruction. It involves counting backward and forward. When a player lands on a trolley symbol, he/she turns over two shopping cards (photo below). When the cards match the pictures or his/her lotto board, the player keeps them. Otherwise, the cards are turned back over in the same place.  The winner is the first player to collect all eight shopping cards on his/her lotto board.

Players have to remember where the cards are that they need to collect. This part stimulates the photographic memory of the right brain.
