Barbecue Party

Barbecue Party Review & Competition

Barbecue Party from Drumond Park is the ideal game for the summer. We’ve been testing it out at home and have oneย to giveaway.

As it is aimed at ages 4+ the lovely folk at Drumond park were aware it was a little too grown up for L, but as my friends all have older kids it’s nice to have something in the house for them to play with.

Of course as soon as it arrived it was unpacked ready for the older ‘children’ to play with. By this I blatantly mean the husband and I, so we set it up one evening after L had gone to bed.ย 

It’s a really fun game, easy to set up, easy to play and most importantly easy to store away. In the box you get a selection of plastic barbecue foods, before you play for the first tie you just need to pop their eye’s on which come in the form of stickers. Aย set of cards with pictures of the foods on. The barbecue. Barbecue grill plate. Tongs. Instructions.


To play you push down the centre button in the barbecue, pop the grill plate on and flick the switch to on. Then you lay the cards face down and everyone turns one over, placing the item from the card on to the grill, or back off if it’s already on there. all the time waiting for the grill plate to pop off and spill the food everywhere.

Even as grown ups it’s fun to play even if it’s a little easy. It really comes into it’s own for the kids though. Watching their excitement is so contagious. L’s older friends love it and really enjoy playing it, they find the game play easy to follow and the excitement of all the food popping off keeps them entertained for ages.

Even L really enjoys it and takes it out from the game cupboard, asking to play. None of the pieces are too small, so I can happily let him play. He just doesn’t get the rules. At all! He enjoys picking up the food items with the tongs and putting them on the barbecue. He laughs so hard when thy all pop off and then we do it again. He has learnt new vegetable names by playing. So I can claim it’s educational.
