The clever folk at Orchard Toys have done it again! They have launched yet another game that is educational fun at pocket money prices. Mum’s and Dad’s will approve of the counting and colour matching practice, while kids will love the fun characters, bright designs and silliness of the giraffes they create as the games is played. Read on to discover more and how you could win your game of Giraffes in Scarves in time for Christmas.
How to play.
The game can be played with 2 to 6 players, the more the merrier. The object is to turn over cards based on the colour you throw on the dice, and build your giraffe from bottom up. Cards add to your giraffe’s neck with one, two or three scarves, but watch out a few trick cards have none. The aim of the game is to collect as many scarves as you can before you turn over your giraffe head. Once you have your head your giraffe can’t grow any further, however you still take a turn to try and find your opponent’s head and stop their giraffe growing too. Once everyone has a head the winner is the player with the most scarves.
What we liked
This game is packed with all the usual Orchard Toys awesomeness. A careful blend of fun and education pitched perfectly for children aged 4 and over. Children will learn turn taking as well as colour matching and basic addition. All the time the learning is gentle and carefully sits alongside the funny giraffes forming before your eyes. The box and cards can all be wiped clean to play over and over again and all for just £7.75.
