This time of year, with the cold and the early darkness, is just perfect for family games nights. We have a couple of regular favourites but the look on the kids faces when we pull out a new game they haven’t seen before is priceless. It’s so lovely to see them enthusiastically working through the instructions, E explaining what he’s reading to his little brother as he goes. Drumond Park has produced some modern classics like the ever popular Articulate and Rapidough so I’m really excited that they are providing today’s #EarlyAdvent prize, the new multi-award- winning PICKIN’ CHICKENS another much loved, instant-action table-top game for children aged 4+.
In Pickin’ Chickens children take it in turns to spin the chickens’ ‘pasture’, and when it stops each child picks a chicken coop to look under, and depending on the colour of the chicken revealed, takes a model chicken of the same colour and puts it on one of the ‘chicken’ spaces on their card. But beware, Mr Fox pops up randomly from his tree-trunk lair like a jack-in- the-box – and gives everyone a shock! When he appears, each player instantly loses one of his or her chickens – unless they hold the Farmer card, which protects them from the fox! Game play continues until someone collects four model chickens – and is declared the winner.
