Pickin’ Chickens is a fun new game from Drumond Park. We’ve been lucky enough to get it early and have been testing it out at home. I also have one to giveaway.
As it is aimed at ages 4+ it should have been too much for L, but like most Drumond Park games we’ve been able to adapt the rules so he can play it now. Although with the little chicken counters I have had to keep a beady eye on him.
L has adored this game. I have actually had to hide it. The idea is simple, spin the wheel and uncover a chicken coop. Keep spinning until you’ve collected all four colours of chicken. The added fun part is the fox that springs from the middle. If he catches you then you have to give one chicken back. He loves the fox!
It’s a great game, helping with colour matching, taking turns and even counting. The element of surprise keeps it fun. I love that it is easy to set up, easy to play and most importantly easy to store away, fitting straight back in the box with no fuss. There are quite a few parts to keep tabs on though and they are quite small so could get lost.
In the box you get your coloured chickens, chicken coops, playing cards and the main ‘turntable’. Of course you also get instructions and i found these easy to follow and think that even a younger child of reading age could get to grips with them.
I love watching L play this and how excited he gets and I cannot wait until he’s that bit older and really ‘gets’ it. But for the moment it’s just a pleasure helping him with his colours and his counting whilst having a right giggle and waiting for the ‘cheeky fox’ to appear.
Pickin’ Chickens has a rrp of £19.99 and is for age 4+, for 2-4 players. For stockists and to play games online, visit www.drumondpark.com
