Orchard Toys Crazy Chefs
Advantages: A quick and simple game to play,
Disadvantages: The pieces are quite small so could easily get lost
Orchard Toys can rarely be criticised and Crazy Chefs is no exception.
The game is a very simple memory and matching game. Each player has a card depicting a meal and the ingredients/utensils required to make it. The smaller cards are then placed face down. Players take it in turns to try and collect the necessary items required to make their meal. Once all the items are collected the player then has to spin a dial to win a plate, then the meal itself. (this last bit is a great addition to the game as it gives other players chance to catch up with collecting their ingredients! Particularly good if playing with children of different ages).
It is also great for teaching children about food, my daughter loves unpacking the shopping so knows most of her food types, but even so there were some that she has learnt through playing this game.
As with all Orchard games the quality is superb. The cards are all strong and made to last. The box is also sturdy and opens at the top so children can carry it around without all the pieces falling out. (I'm so glad the old box/lid design seems to be going out of the window!). It is also a nice and compact game, great for taking on holiday!
My daughter and her friends all turned 3 within a few weeks of each other, and I bought them all Crazy Chefs! It was a resounding success with all of them....to the point that their parents were sick to death of playing it!
Summary: Another fantastic Orchard Toys game!
