Dobble Kids Review & Giveaway!

Often on the road travelling to see family we like to take easy to pack toys for the monkeys to play with! This is where Dobble Kids from Esdevium Games comes in and why it's the perfect travel game for children (and adults) to play. Small and compact it fits easily into luggage and as it comes in a tin, it's ideal to tidy away, keeping the playing cards together in one place.

We were sent it a while back to review with the monkeys. Taking it on holiday with us proved an ideal time to test it.
What is Dobble Kids?
  • A game of Speed, Observation and Reflexes.
  • Race to find the one matching image between one card and another.
  • Images may be different sizes and placed on any part of the card, making them difficult to spot.
  • Every card is unique and has only one picture in common with every other card in the deck.
  • Contains 5 mini quick and easy games for ages 4+
  • For 2-5 players
Dobble Kids contains 30 cards, featuring 30 different animal symbols. 

The aim of the game 
Is to match the same animal between each game card faster than the other players. 

Just draw 2 cards and place them face up. The person who spots the same animal on both cards calls out the animal name and draws 2 new cards to play. Replay as much as you like!

Dobble Kids offers five mini-games. Three were inspired by Dobble, two are especially designed for children's version. 

With less symbols to simplify and shorten the game it's great for parties as it brings together people from different ages. Also perfect for travel as I've already said! Maybe not so for the car but for train travel and for once you get there!
The monkeys killed time waiting for us adults to get ready during our caravan holiday. It was ideal for the two of them to play together on the floor (or even at the table). Quick fire rounds make it the perfect "time waster' or 'stop gap' game.
Our two monkeys seem particularly good at spotting things in books when searching for objects and this was no different. They were certainly better than me at matching the animals and grasped the game well too.
Who wins?
The winner is the person to find the common animal before anyone else! Both monkeys won the game at one point or another. (It's only fair!)
The mini games that can be played are
  • Hide and seek
  • The Five fingers of a hand
  • The Tower of doom
  • The Wall
  • The unwelcomed gift 
In Hide and seek be the first player to have only face down cards in front of them! 

With The Five fingers of a hand, the goal of the game is to be the faster player to get rid of all their cards.

The winner of The Tower of doom is the person who has won the most cards from the draw pile when the game ends!

The aim of The Wall is to be the fastest and certainly not the last to get rid of all their cards.

During play of The Unwelcomed gift the aim is to be the player with the fewest cards from the draw pack when the game ends.
Conclusion
A fun set of games in one tin that the monkeys enjoyed playing. They actually played nicely without one getting cross that the other had won or cheated and of course as the games are short they each got to win as mentioned! Great for us adults to play with them too. This kids version is perfect for our two. I think maybe the original Dobble would be too old for little monkey in particular.

Available for £12.99 from Amazon.
