With the half-term in full swing University Games has pulled together its top games to keep the family entertained across the holidays. Whether it’s drawing with googly glasses or naming the first three things in 5 seconds… University Games has something to suit all ages.
The Family Favourite: Staccups
Speed and hand/eye co-ordination are needed, in this fast, frantic stacking game. Race your opponent to clear all of your cups. If the base colour of your cup, matches the top colour of one on the podium… then stack it… quickly! Your opponent may be quicker, and your chance has gone, but keep alert for the next one!
Ages 8+. For 2-4 players. RRP £14.99, available at Amazon and all major toys retailers.
The Fast Thinker: 5 Second Rule
It should be easy to name three breeds of dog – but can you do it under the pressure of 5 seconds twisting down and with the other players staring, waiting for you to get flustered? Time is not on your side with 5 Second Rule, so just blurt out whatever comes to mind and risk ridiculous answers slipping out as time twirls down on the spiral timer.
Ages 8+. For 3+ players. RRP £19.99, available at Amazon and Argos.
Get the kids giggling: Yeti In My Spaghetti
This game is as crazy as it sounds… Take turns to carefully pull away the squiggly spaghetti sticks from the bowl, but be careful not to let the yeti that is sat balancing on top tumble into the bowl. As the intensity rises with each draw of spaghetti, the player who makes the yeti fall is the looser!
Ages 4+. For 2+ players. RRP: £19.99 available from Amazon
Hilariously Funny: Googly Eyes
Googly Eyes is the hilarious drawing game involving crazy, googly glasses that challenge your vision and leave you googling for more. Simply put on the zany, vision-altering Googly Eye glasses and start to draw whilst the team tries to guess what you’re drawing – and on a time limit!
