I love that the school summer holidays bring you time. Time in the evenings without clubs and homework just to be together and relax.
It’s the perfect time to introduce a new board game.
We have often watched The Cube on TV it is the perfect game for the family to watch, lots of action lots of oooh and agggh moments and brilliant challenges. I have to admit I rather like Philip Schofield too. (I once saw him in Joseph in the West End and I swear he winked at me.)
Where to buy The Cube board game
We were excited to receive the board game The Cube to review from House of Fraser last week. They no longer sell it but you get The Cube board game from Amazon and most good toy shops
The Cube board game how to play
The game is very like the TV show in that you are aiming to get as much money as possible, you have one simplify and one trial run card and 9 lives. Each of you attempt the same challenge.
Some of the challenges are mental such as adding numbers together quickly or guessing when the line will reach the other side. For these games there is a very smart electronic unit that times you and presents the challenge. Other games are practical, such as balancing balls or constructing tubes and spinning around with them (super slowly) so nothing falls out.

The Cube board game review
Lots of giggles playing this game and it really was tricky!
I had to give my 8 year old daughter quite a few extra lives (or she would have been out stright away) but we had a blast and will most definitely play this game again. I love games that are a bit different and really push you and this is defintely one of those.
Highly recommended – this game is robust, varied, challenging and fun and it made us giggle.
The Cube board game cost
The Cube board game costs around £25 and is suitable for children and adults aged 8+ we definitely felt it was value for money
