We were lucky enough to get sent a Dobble game to try this Easter hols. We like a good game around the table, or at least Boy Two and I do and everyone else puts up with it.
So Boy Two and I were excited to give Dobble a whirl…
It’s a game with 55 round cards each with eight different symbols. The clever bit is that each card has one symbol in common with each other card… and only one symbol. I tried to work out how that happened for a while, but it made my head hurt so I stopped.
The instruction book has several different variations on games that involve spotting the matchers. Boy Two and I got the hang of it within minutes and enjoyed it. Boy One and the Panther of News even said they didn’t mind a go.
It’s a firm favourite – possibly toppling Monopoly cards from their top spot. And, for me, one of the best bits is the tin. It’s easy to store and you won’t lose cards.
Dobble is available in good toyshops and the RRP is £12.99.
