Product Description

Product Description

Everyone knows the story of the three little pigs, all trying to build their houses, and the big bad wolf who wants to huff and puff and blow the houses down so he can have the little pigs for his dinner.This is a very simple game, in which players roll the die to try to land on a pile of straw, sticks or bricks. Each time they do so, they can take a corresponding house piece from a pile on the table. The aim is to collect both the pieces needed for each type of house, until they have a house of straw, sticks and bricks in front of them.But they have to watch out for someone landing on a wolf square. If this happens, the player spins the spinner, and this gives the wolf the chance to huff and puff and blow down one of the other players' houses. Once a player has completed all three of their houses, they have to try to get to the centre of the playing board before the sneaky wolf starts huffing and puffing again. The game is easy to play, but players have to watch out for the wolf right up to the last minute. This game is for 2 to 4 players, ideally aged between 3 and 6, and is made of sturdy, recycled board.

Product Description

Build your houses before the big bad wolf tries to blow them down! Help your three little pigs to build their houses, but beware of the big bad wolf, who will huff and puff and blow your house down! Players: 2-4 Suitable for ages 3-6 Years + Safety Information: Warning. Not suitable for Children under 3 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our favourite Orchard Toys game 16 Sep 2012
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We have quite a few Orchard Toys games and this one is my son's favourite (and mine!). He has just turned four and asks to play this game several times a week. As with all Orchard Toys games, the quality is great with very sturdy cardboard pieces that fit together perfectly. Players roll the dice and move around the board, building their three houses and, when you land on a wolf, spinning the spinner to blow down somebody else's house.

The game is mostly down to chance, which is great because it means adults and children can play together and nobody has too much of an advantage. It also means that my son can't get too huffy when he doesn't win.

There is a skill element too: if you spin straw or sticks, you must choose which player's house to 'blow down'. Hopefully this is teaching my son a bit of logic and maturity: he is learning that it might be best to take a house piece from the person who has most, rather than just saying "Hahaha, I've taken Daddy's house again!" each time.

The wolf element means that the game isn't just a straightforward race to the finish, which is a big part of why we like it so much. I'd highly recommend this for age 3 and up (in fact, I'm planning on buying another as a Christmas gift!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new game from Orchard Toys 22 Jun 2011
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Have been looking for something that takes a bit longer and a bit more than the usual snap/lotto games. This is lovely 3D game and ties in lovely with the story. Also teaches counting and turn taking and fun enough to keep the 2.5yr old involved for the whole game.

My son loves the story of 3 little pigs and the big bad wolf, that's why he loves playing with this game. It is perfect for the whole family. We have a great time playing with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kids love it! 25 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
My kids (5 and 3 year old) simply love this game. It has very simple rules, easy to remember.
3 or 4 players is optimal but 2 players will have fun as well. There is a hint of tactic (who's house should I blow) and it helps
to learn to count.
The board is very colorfull and there is lots to talk about (pond and trees, sheep on field etc.) It's very sturdy made of thick cardboard. The markers and houses are well made as well. Would recommend, don't hestitate you won't regreat buying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great game 9 April 2013
Verified Purchase
Bought this game for my Nieces as they love the story of the Three Little Pigs. The instructions were easy to follow so once set up we were away. The children loved the fact that you could build your houses of straw, bricks and sticks and that the Wolf could not blow your house of bricks down if you landed on his square. Really good game.

The game is lovely and both my children (aged 4 and 5) enjoyed playing it. The only downside is that it did not contain a dice so I had to search through our other games to find one. I think this is probably a one-off error though.

We've been playing this with our 3yr-old and it has been a hit. Players move round the board building straw, stick and brick abodes and trying not to have their houses blown down by the big bad wolf. Lots of fun and we have only made one slight tweak to the rules to ensure it doesn't go on too long. I think this will be popular with those aged 3-5.
