Take on the challenge of the ever-popular TV series Countdown
in your own living room as you race against the clock to make up the longest possible word from the letter cards you have chosen, or come up with the right solution in the number game, or finally solve the all-important conundrum that could make or break your chances of winning...
Fantastic (and frustrating!), fun for all the family to play together, Countdown is a great game that challenges players to challenge themselves. The game comes with letter cards, number cards, a "number randomiser" (press the button and it gives you the number you have to aim for), score pads and a sand timer. The only real pity is that the players have to rely on their own vocal talents to make that famous Countdown noise... and therein lies a game in itself! (Age 10 to adult) --Susan Harrison
Based on Channel 4's popular show. This game represents the show, consisting of nine rounds: six letter games, two number games and one conundrum, although there is no reason to get stage fright because you can play at home in your living room!
