Board games

Summer sun has left Ireland already and yet again we have to brighten our days our own way. Our latest favourite family entertainment is board games. I’m very happy girls like them so much because they’re better alternative to computer games, which, in addition, includes all members of the family.

Letnie slonce juz jakis czas temu opuscilo Irlandie i znow musimy sobie rozswietlac dni po swojemu. Nasza ulubiona rodzinna rozrywka sa ostatnio gry planszowe. Ciesze sie, ze dziewczynki tak je lubia bo to duzo lepsza alternatywa dla gier komputerowych, ktora wlacza cala rodzine.

“Mike the knight- Mike’s treasure hunt game” by Ravensburger was our first ever board game. It’s great for starting adventure with board games. It has very easy rules, beautifull graphic design and an arrow instead of a dice, which is much easier to use for little children and you can’t loose it. I trully recommend it!

Nasza pierwsza gra byla gra “Mike the knight- Mike’s treasure hunt game” Ravensburgera. Jest swietna na poczatek przygody z grami planszowymi. Bardzo proste zasady, piekna oprawa graficzna, zamiast kostki strzalka latwiejsza w obsludza dla najmlodszych. Serdecznie polecam!

Next game, also from Ravensburger, is a Thomas “Roads and rails”game. Games with cartoon characters are generally more attractive to children. This game has a two-side board so that you can play two games using it- easier or more difficult. Difficult version is a bit confusing because all fields are numbered so to know which way to go you have to follow numbers. And little kids like mine can’t count to 50 yet. But that being said, Anabel loves this game and we still have to play it every day.

I love the fact that in easier version you have to use color dice, thanks to what, even small children, like Rosalie, can play and learn colors at the same time.

Kolejna gra, takze Ravensburgera, to gra z Thomasem”Roads and rails”. Gry z charakterami bajkowymi sa wielka zacheta dla dzieci. Gra ta ma dwustronna plansze co pozwala na dwie formy gry- latwiejsza i trudniejsza. Trudniejsza wersja jest troszke mylaca bo pola sa numerowane wiec by wiedziec, w ktora strone isc, nalezy podazac za numerkami. A male dzieci nie potrafia jeszcze liczyc do 50. Anabel jednak nie daje za wygrana i codzien musimy choc raz w nia zagrac.

Bardzo podoba mi sie fakt, ze w latwiejszej formie gry, uzywa sie kostki z kolorami, dzieki czemu juz najmlodsze dzieci, jak Rosalie, moga w nia grac uczac sie jednoczesnie kolorow.

Next to games which we play every day are “Lucky ducky” and “If you see a crocodile” by Orchard toys. Games are beautifull and colourfull, they catch an eye. But personally I don’t like Lucky ducky. The rules are to spin an arrow which will point to a number between 1 and 10 an then guess if a duck that we’ll choose next, will have higher or lower number. Anabel doesn’t understand this rule yet so we play this game our way. Each player has three attempts to find a number that the arrow points to. Player with most ducks is a winner. Anabel likes this game very much.

Kolejne dwie gry, w ktore gramy codziennie to “Lucky ducky” i ” If you see a crocodile” Orchard toys. Gry sa piekne i kolorowe, przykuwaja uwage. Jednak gry Lucky ducky osobiscie nie lubie. Chodzi w niej o to, ze po wykreceniu strzalka jakiegos numeru miedzy 1 a 10 nalezy zgadnac czy kaczka, ktora wylosujemy bedzie miala numer wyzszy czy nizszy od tego, ktory wskazuje strzalka. Anabel nie rozumie jeszcze tych zasad wiec gramy w te gre zupelnie po swojemu. Po wylosowaniu  numeru, mamy trzy proby by znalezc kaczke z tym samym numerem. Kto zbierze najwiecej kaczek, wygrywa. W ten sposob cwiczymy nasza pamiec poniewaz kaczki, ktore odslonimy a ktore maja inny numer od wylosowanego, odkladamy na miejsce. Anabel bardzo ja lubi w tej wersji.

“If you see a crocodile” is so beautiful and interesting with it’s 3-d house and boat and many colorful tokens. After picking a color using a dice, we then choose one of tokens with the same color. If there’s a picture of water on reverse, we’re allowed to move to a field with that color but if reverse side shows a crocodile, we loose our turn. Great fun!

“If you see a crocodile” jest absolutnie piekna i taka ciekawa, z trojwymiarowym domkiem i lodka oraz wieloma zetonami. Po wylosowaniu kostka koloru, losujemy jeden z zetonow o takim samym kolorze. Jesli na odwrocie zetonu jest woda, stajemy na podanym polu, a jesli krokodyl, nie ruszamy sie z miejsca i tracimy kolejke. Swietna zabawa!
