Gaming sets contain a collection of a number of simple & easy to play games. I used to own one as a kid which was pocked sized and therefore ideal for travelling & taking with me on the move.
Generally the games contained are Chess, Chequers, Backgammon & Ludo. These are usually contained within two boards with each featuring a game on either side. All the pieces required are also contained within the set. Some sets may also contain Snake & Ladders and Go, as well as a pack of cards which allows you to play a wide variety of card games too.
As these games are relatively simple, it makes sense to package them together saving money & the space used storing them when buying them all seperately.
Being easy & straightforward to play, they are good games to play as a family and will give the kids an alternative to sitting in front of their games consoles.
You can normally pick up one of these sets from around £10 which is pretty good value. It will keep the kids & adults entertained while either playing at home or maybe keeping occupied whilst travelling.
Get one of these & play along to some classic games!
