We were thrilled to be asked by Orchard Toys to take a look at a brand new game they were releasing. All the Orchard Toys games we have played so far have been fantastic – and educational – so we were excited to see what this new release was going to be like!
Race up the hill and be the first to reach the well in this fun and educational family game. Made with the usual superb quality of all the Orchard Toys games we have had the pleasure to play, the Jack and Jill Game is no exception.
With 2 play modes the fun can be explored in 2 different ways, either by matching colours or by counting, both of which are great ways to play. The game is made out of strong, highly coloured and good quality board (which is all 100% recycled too!) and is really attractive to play with.
Easy to put together and with a strong box for storage, you basically have to roll a dice (either colours or numbers) and move to the appropriate square. Once there you have to spin the spinner… if you land on a well you are safe and can stay where you are… but if the spinner lands on a spilling bucket, you have to roll down the hill all the way back to the start. The winner is the first person the reach the well on their playing board.
