Explosive card game sure to appeal to anyone with that slapstick sense of humour.
In this suitably tasteless and brilliantly entertaining game, players race to get rid their cards whilst trying to avoid the obvious hazards. Each card can only be discarded by making the appropriate noise, from Eggy Stinker, Duvet Lifter and the easy Silent but Deadly to the rather more unfortunate Wet Rasper. Instant fun from the off, the dilemma is when to use the Gas Mask - phew!
Draw a card, do what it says - Repeat until you're all twisted up!£11.95
Looks impossible but easy to balance almost anywhere - magic!£6.95
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.
