Advantages: A fun game
Disadvantages: It can be frustrating trying to roll a six
Frustration is a great board game for kids starting out which is on the market for around ten pounds. I first got this when I was 6 years old and spent numerous hours playing with my brother.
It is a simple game where 2-4 players can join in. each player starts with four pieces (I wouldnt advise on players under the age of 5 playing as these pieces are small and chokeable). The idea of the game is to get each player home. The winner of the game is the first player to get all their pieces home. All players start in their own base and you need to roll a six to leave you base and start going round the board. Once on the board the idea is to make a full rotation clockwise round the board and get safe into your home. If you land on another player they have to return to their base and role another 6 to get onto the board. The rules and game are not too taxing but does not mean the game is not fun.
Inside the game is a big plastic board and 16 pieces in sets of four different colours: blue, yellow, red, green. The pieces fit perfectly into plastic grooves built into the board. These grooves are used to move around the board. The dice is held in a fascinating contraption in the middle of the board. It I held in a plastic dome which you push down on. This flips the dice and rolls in the dome. I really like this as it makes it impossible to lose the dice. The board is very durable and the plastic is strong. My family have often dropped (and even thrown in fury) the board and it still is as good as ever.
It is a great game and very easy for kids to pick up.
Summary: A great game for all the family
