Review: LinkIt! Fun for the Whole Family.
We really love
family games, and as the dark nights draw closer it seems right to be
adding to our ever-expanding collection. We were recently sent
Linkit, an interactive game suitable for all the family, to review.
Here’s how we got on…

Linkit is presented
in a round tin, it’s pretty compact and I could imagine being able to
take it on day trips or storing it in the car for road trips or
simply using it at home on rainy days. Inside the tin is a set of
instructions and a set of orange and blue cards.

It took us a while
to get our head around the instructions, but once we got going it was
really easy and this is where the competitive side comes into play!

To begin you need to
make sure the blue and orange cards are separated and place the
orange cards face up in the middle of the players. You then shuffle
the blue cards and place them into 9 piles around the pack of orange
cards. Then the fun begins…
The aim of the game
is to collect as many cards as possible. To do this each player must
try to make a link between two blue cards and the main orange card.
When a player notices the links they need to shout them out and take
the two blue cards and the orange card. The game repeats in this way
until one pile runs out of cards. Whoever has the most cards at the
end of the game wins! 

When it comes to
matching the pictures, it was a little confusing at first. You have
to match pictures that go together, for example ‘camp-fire’ and
‘tent’ or ‘fish’ and ‘fish bowl’. It took us a while to click with
all the different links available, but over time we all managed to
retain the links and paly the game in a fast-paced fashion.

We really enjoyed
playing this game, but for Warren and I it became a little
repetitive. However, George and Molly want to play it all the time,
and that’s what really counts!

You can get Link It
for £12.95 (RRP £16.95) from Amazon.
