A simple game of catching, defending and winning the kangaroos.
This fun entertaining card game from Brainbox is simple to learn but fiendishly competitive to play. Played with 3 to 6 players, there are 11 different coloured kangaroo figures to try and win. Play a card to catch a matching Roo from the middle or another player or defend your own Roo by playing a matching card. The player with the most Roo figures is the winner - fair dinkum!
Eight year olds like more challenging stuff and adventures. Try the Walkie Talkies or the Slingball Challenge for outside. Anything involving potential explosions or high speed makes a good present. Or anything they can throw or shoot at someone else.
