Moshi Monsters Where is Moshi
Advantages: Easy and quick to play, Moshi themed for fans.
Disadvantages: Not a long lasting game, doesn't keep them entertained for long enough.
~*~*~ Moshi Monsters - Where's Moshi? ~*~*~
~ What is it? ~
Where's Moshi? is a board game not unsimilar to Guess Who. It is obviously Moshi Monster based which is brilliant for Moshi Monster fans.
~ What's included in the box? ~
This comes packaged in a bright and colourful cardboard box, the box is fairly stong so can be used to keep the game in when it is not being used.
Opening the box you will find two orange coloured plastic game boards which have 24 little green doors on each, there is also two sheets of stickers, a few green plastic pegs and an instruction leaflet.
~ Setting the game up ~
Before you can even begin to play this game you will need to stick the stickers onto the green doors, my son and I decided to do this together and we made the stupid mistake of taking the same characters off the sheets and sticking them to the same doors so I then had to take off my doors by unclipping them and rearranging them around the board in a different manner, keeping them in the same places is a sure fire way to spoil the game as you will be in no doubt as to who your opponant has picked! Plonkers!
When that is done (the correct way!) you simply need to flip the doors into the up position so you can see all the characters, pick your Moshi, place a peg in the hole so you don't forget who you have chosen and then you are ready.
~ Playing the game ~
Playing this game is really simple even if you are not sure which group your chosen Moshi belongs too. You just fire questions at each other, for instance ' Does yours have wings? ' If the answer is no then you flip down any winged Moshi's and so on. Some characters are more easy to guess than others due to their shape or what they are Oddie for example is a dougnut shaped Moshi so if I chose to be him and my son asked ' Is yours a foodie/round/pink etc ' it is narrowed down really easily so I would end up being the looser *Makes L shape with fingers and puts it on forehead!*
~ Any good? ~
My three oldest children have played this even though my eldest has no interest in Moshi Monsters what so ever, they all play it with no help from me and can all grasp the concept very easily. I bought this for my son last Christmas and at the time it did get played with a lot but over the months they have lost interest slightly and it comes out now and again.
What I do find good though is that it isn't a messy toy and required little in the way of cleaning up afterwards, just simply pop the two boards back in the box - Simple!
~ Overall ~
I paid around the £10 mark for this last year, in fact I think I managed to get it on offer in Argos for about £8 or there abouts, it is currently available for £10 on Amazon and I think this is a fair price as it will please any Moshi Monster fan.
I don't have any bad points to mention as I think that for the price I paid it has had a good bit of use and my son was really pleased with it.
It's quite stong and sturdy with it being constructed from plastic but the little green pegs are long gone so they now have to simply remember what character they picked.
The characters on the board are ~
Big Bad Bill
It's a good enough game but it isn't enough to keep my children entertained for hours. It's something they play once or twice and then it gets put away for another while and then the same happens again, it doesn't all end in tears though which is a good thing!
Thanks for reading :o) x
Summary: A good enough game but soon gets boring.
