Advantages: Fun, suitable for everyone
Disadvantages: Can't think of any.
What is it?
Chairs is a game which is slightly comparable to Jenga in that you have to balence chairs in a stack without letting them fall over. The chairs are of four different colours and four different designs (but colour does not corrospond to design).
Who is it suitable for?
My grandparents (80) had just as much fun with this game as my youngest cousin (4), and everyone inbetween. The lack of rules means that it is suitable for everyone!
I really like the game - it appears really simple and easy, but when you get going you realise how hard it is to make a stack, particually when only one chair can touch the floor. It is particually fun I feel as you can play it in many different ways - you can see who can stack the chairs the highest, the most number or have an alloted amount at the start and it is the first to get rid of all their chairs - and if it falls over on you you get all of them! Alternatively you can play it if it falls over on you you are out and then you continue.
We initally bought the game as something to do between courses on christmas day (there were 13 of us) and there is always a big gap as it takes alot of time to clear the tables, but I would suggest that it is suitable for anyone and everyone for whatever occasion and you can even on you own play to see the size of the stack that you can achieve - I never got more than about 10 chairs high!
I think for the price (£6.99 amazon) it will give everyone so much fun and is suitable for adults as well as kids which makes it a real investment for both the future and today. It comes in a tin box which means that however much it is thrown around it should last.
Summary: Great game for everyone
