5.0 out of 5 stars Good family Game 7 Dec 2010
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this after purchasing and enjoying playing The Logo Board Game. Good fun family game but best played in mixed age group teams as some of the questions are geared towards the more mature. Scoring by moving to the appropriate coloured square also makes the game more fun as answering another teams question after they have got it wrong can propel you forwards and similarly, if you get your question wrong, it can really hold you back.
All round good fun game that the whole family enjoyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of British 4 Jan 2011

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I brought this for my family Christmas - especially as there was going to be a mixture of ages from 16 to 73 years old playing the game. This was great fun and we all learnt a lot of useful things about the UK - much better than trivial persuit;-))

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Played game with children and adults. Children preferred LOGO. Adults enjoyed game but felt it was geared more for English rather than British. Nevertheless it was good fun.

This game is very enjoyable. Although it says you can play with 2 players this seems almost impossible to win according to instructions. Much better with at least 3 players or teams.

This is a good game, but is better with a mix of ages on a team as it's harder for younger players.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great idea, poorly executed. 21 Nov 2010
By Gez
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this as a family game for Christmas. Had a quick game last night to get the hang of it, and was a little disappointed. The instructions are somewhat confusing, and gameplay has not been thought through very well. As an example - the playing board is made of coloured squares relating to coloured questions on the cards. To start the game you answer a RED question, then move to the first RED square. This immediately skips the first 4 squares on the board EVERYTIME! We also found two questions with incorrect answers within an hour of playing. I'm hoping playing in a crowd will enhance the fun of the game - even if we do have to make up the rules as we go.

We've also ordered the Logo game, which has not arrived yet - but as it's in the same game-style, and by the same company - I'm already thinking it may not be as good as I'd hoped.

4.0 out of 5 stars useful to teach English to foreigner students 15 Nov 2010
By tamy
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I am an Italian English teacher. this board game is very useful to teach a bit of British culture and way of life....there are some curiosities, pics and many ideas to teach Britishness and English in a less scholastic way!
I tried it with my teenager students and they went nuts about the game! they love to find more information about the answers on the net and they began to understand that every culture is peculiar and it is worth to know it better and to understand it!
