4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun, 4 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BrainBox Horrible Histories Vile Villains (Toy)
I was searching through the masses of Horrible Histories things on here and found this. Wasn't too aware of BrainBox myself, and my children aren't 8+ but it was cheap enough that i thought i'd give it a try.
Well both my five year old and my seven year old love Horrible Histories and they love this game. We have done away with the timer, it was too quick to run out, even i didn't have enough time to properly look at the card including reading everything and i've never been considered a slow reader.
We have changed that bit to the words on the card need to be read out loud and then a bit of time to check out the pictures.

We like our method, it doesn't detract from the game aspect and it means that we all at least get the chance to hear the facts and maybe retain them for future reference. But i guess thats the beauty of it, its such a simple concept, main game components - cards with facts and pictures and test your memory/knowledge questions, incidental game components - dice, timer. it means you can make the game work for you.

I will be looking to get other versions of BrainBox now because this one was so good. i hope they live up to the great standard they set with this one.
