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!
Nine year olds are clever little fellows and have lots of interests. Great presents for 9 year old boys are remote controlled cars or flying objects, science construction kits, anything that shoots, or outdoor gear. Magic is popular and anything involving pranks will appeal to that 9 year old sense of fun. Or get them a great book.
