Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This game incoporates mental and physical tasks and challenges. I tried the game with adult family members to start with. Although it is quite a simple game we did enjoy it and have some real 'laugh out loud' moments during the more physical challenges. Seeing my daughter hopping around a target whilst imitating a chicken is a sight I won't forget! When we tried it with children we found that the recommended age range is about right. A six year old struggled but the nine year old loved it. Some of the question based tasks are a little tough for younger players.
The one major flaw found was that the game is not turn based which means, theoretically, if a player was skilled enough then they could complete the game with no-one else having had a turn. A simple enough solution is to ignore those instructions have each player having one throw of the dice then moving on to the next player.
Not the best game ever but certainly good for a laugh.

Imagine the scene in the game design office....

"Right lads, we need a new game, something which will really get sales moving."
"Errm, how about we get a few concepts from other games and see what happens when you combine them all?"
"Yes, and lets ditch a few traditional concepts to balance it out"
"Won't this lead to confusion and more than a few family arguments?"
"of course, but that's what family board games are all about, lots of bits, lots of rules, a bit of ambiguity and Bob's your uncle."
"Great, you've got two weeks"

This doesn't sound like the best start to a game but surprisingly it's more fun and chaos than a barrel full of live monkeys. Taking concepts from trivia games, physical challenge games, bidding/gambling games, and mental agility games, setting them all against the clock and then getting rid of the idea of rigid turn based play, Chalenj! Manages to deliver a whole lot of fun and the range of challenges prevents any one person from dominating the game leading to a balanced few hours of amusement and anarchy with lots of friendly arguments and noise. It looks complicated to set up but is actually a breeze and quick to start. The game works best with all 6 players but we've managed fine with less.

Genuinely, a great laugh and a LOT of fun.

I LOVED this game!

Chalenj! comes with:
-a board
-a dice (nice and big so it's not easy to lose)
-a 30 second timer
-a soft ball
-a card trophy (this is flimsy and won't take too many games for me to break but as it's for the winner it's not really needed)
-a card hand shape (which is used to call a chalenj! on someone else, we didn't bother using this)
-a target mat
-a mega mat with 4 shapes (this was only used once in our game)
-40 chalenj! discs (number on one side and picture on the other)
-chalenj! questions

This is a game for 1-6 players and for age 8 and up.
The object of this game is to win obviously but to do that you have to complete chalenj!'s. There are 4 kinds of chalenj!, each one has a time limit of 30 seconds and you bid how many times you think you can do what the chalenj! is:
-physical chalenj! (e.g how many times can you move from a monkey shape to a snake shape or spin around the target mat with your head staying on the number 3 - that one had me almost crying with laughter)
-mental chalenj! (e.g How many pictures on the discs can you memorise in order or how many words can you say that include house like ___ house, tree house, poor house)
- mystery chalenj! (e.g how many kinds of dance can you name and do or how many black things can you touch with the ball.)
-personal chalenj! (e.g can you balance 15 discs on your elbow without them falling off or put your left hand on your right shoulder can you put your head through the gap.)

Play doesn't go in a circle like a normal game, you get a turn by winning a chalenj! or someone losing a personal chalenj!.

Here's an example. Player one rolls the dice and chooses a card, their chalenj!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
What's in a name? Some confusion if you consider `Chalenj' which is a new family activity board game similar in nature to the very popular `Cranium'. I would argue that `Chalenj' is a great alternative to people who have played `Cranium' and are looking for something similar, but with different challenges. `Chalenj' is a board game that sees you race around the board against your opponents. Every square that you land on offers a different challenge; physical, mental, mystery and personal. If you land on one of the first three challenges a game of bidding occurs. Go around the board and each person states how many times they can do a particular task in 30 seconds e.g. do star jumps. Once someone believes their opponent will struggle they throw down the `Chalenj' glove and the fun begins! If they succeed they get to go next, fail and the challenger gets the dice.

`Chalenj' is a simple game that is very fun to play. The rules are easy enough to follow and you only need a few minutes to get your head around them then you are off. In terms of build quality the board, hacky sack, cards and various other items are very good. Perhaps only the bland play pieces let the side down. Where the game succeeds most is forcing the players to do daft things. I had a great time repeatedly making my partner touch her toes or state the alphabet backwards in 30 seconds! This is the kind of game that is great for family fun (and the odd argument).

A misgiving that I have is the buoyant nature of the game. Often board games are played because it is wet outside and the family are stuck together in a small space. `Chalenj' is a board game that rarely uses the board! Often the tasks have you moving all around the room, or throwing things.
