MB Games Frustration
Advantages: Everyone loves it - Not boring & the game can last a while
Many board games in my opinion where there is dice, come down to luck and a tiny bit of strategy to decide who wins. Frustration is a good example of winning by this way.
Me and my brother had an older version of this years ago when we were kids... and more recently in the last year my daughter had asked me for this when she played it once at school. To be fair it hasn't changed much to when I was a kid, a few small changes such as different more modern box, the older Frustration you also click the bubble in the middle to make the dice "move/roll" whereas on the new one each player has a flicker as you can see in the picture which you need to flick to get the bubble in the middle to use the dice.
You get a couple of bits inside the box which are needed to operate the game. You get the main game board with bubble in the centre, four different coloured flickers - one for each player and an instruction booklet to explain game play and rules.
The aim of the game is simple and a young child can grasp this after a couple of game plays - my daughter has been playing since the age of four and is now a mini expert at the age of six. Each player starts off with 4 little counters in their own colour to match their flicker. Each player must get each of their counters around the board once and up their "home line" under the dice bubble - which is the safe area. To get each counter on the board the player has to roll a 6 - and you can be sent right back to the beginning if another player lands on you.
It is a classic in my eyes, kids and adults love it alike and it can be one you play time and time again. Could be a family game night or just a quick game between your kids and their friends.

I paid around the £10 mark from a local shop for this - its widely available in a number of shops such as Argos. I can currently find it on Amazon at £14.25 with free P+P at the time of writing this review.
Summary: great classic game
