Great all round game

Fantastic game to play as a pair or with a family, or play it in teams.
This game usually comes out on Christmas Eve or New Years, but definitely deserves place in the family games cupboard all year round!
It’s also so much better than sticking post it notes on ones forehead!

This is such as family friendly game! The kids and I love it! Fun for ALL ages. I use mainly around Christmas and school days off. The entire family love it. When ever we go out to a theme park or a festival, we will usually use it in the line to pass time! Works like a dream. I recommend it to everyone!😀
