Popcorn Poppin' Giveaway and Yulu Games review

As schools have now returned, our attentions move towards considering Christmas. It may seem crazy, especially after the year we have had, however Home Bargains now have an aisle dedicated to festive season goodies and it’s time to start stocking up!

For us, lockdown gave us the time to finally dust out board games we had forgotten about, complete jigsaws and just generally have family fun. With this in mind, we are going to take a look at some of the hottest games for Christmas, that are fun not just for children, but great for the whole family to play too!

Break The Board, Diamond Heist and Who Dunnit? are recently launched family fun games from Yulu that we have been putting to the test recently, but what did we think?

Family Games From Yulu And Popcorn Poppin’ Giveaway

Break the Board game

Break The Board

We have been totally hooked by the Cobra Kai series on Netflix recently, having watched The Karate Kid film during lockdown. If you haven’t watched it yet, I can totally recommend it! When Break The Board arrived it was the first game Liv wanted to try and before I could say ‘Daniel-san’, the included red Break The Board hachimaki was tied around her head and she was ready to chop!

Break The Board Game review

Based on the ‘Simon’ concept, the game requires you to Chop, Swipe, Strike and Break The Board, when prompted with instructions and lights. You can use the included stand (very easy to set up) for solo play or you can find someone brave enough to hold the board up! With 4 challenging game modes – Level Up, Competition, Training and Freestyle, this is a fantastic interactive game that will keep everyone entertained! Instructions are included, although it is very easy to understand the game from the get-go. The game is aimed at children aged 6 years upwards and does come ready to play with 3 x AAA batteries included, alongside a demo mode! You can now purchase Break The Board (RRP £19.99) from retailers such as Smyths Toys online or in store.

Diamond Heist Game review

Diamond Heist

Also aimed at children aged 6 years upwards, Diamond Heist takes a little longer to set up, but is totally worth it. Once you have read the instructions (there are plenty of images to check too!) and set it up for the first time, it will become easier and quicker to set up in the future.

The game mission is to rappel into the vault to find and recover the diamond, using team power (ideally 2-4 players) in order to escape before the guards arrive. We liked this game for the ‘Crystal Maze’ feel and the excitement! Tensions are definitely high as you work together, controlling the spy figure on strings as you swing it around the game board to complete all the tasks.

Diamond Heist Game review

Remove cameras, remove the booby trap, open the vault, retrieve the diamond and escape before you are caught… you never expected stealing a diamond to be easy did you? Whilst it is aimed at 2-4 players, you may find it easier with a higher number of players to help manoeuvre the spy figure. Perfect skills such as dexterity, teamwork, speed, coordination and spy skills… well, you never know when they may come in handy! Remember that they guard’s car is moving around the game board at all times on a timer, if you are caught then just reset the game! No batteries are required, simply pull back the guard’s car into the original place.

This is a high octane game that is sure to encourage everyone to get involved in game play. Whilst there are small pieces and mission discs involved, the game is very easy to pack away, making it portable to take to family and friends too. With an RRP of £19.99, you can now purchase Diamond Heist from retailers such as Smyths Toys, online or in store.

Who Dunnit? Game

Who Dunnit? Mystery At The Museum

An awesome head to head crime solving game that is perfect for all the family to get involved with! Aimed at ages 7 years plus with 2-4 players, although you could have more, they would just need to be discreet when whispering clues, Who Dunnit? Mystery At The Museum is a fabulous game for Christmas at home or on travels!

Easy to set up and put away, the game includes 6 game frames with supports, 36 cards, 6 see-thru evidence boards so you can keep track of your progress (and your opponents!), 2 dry-erase markers, 1 dice and an instruction sheet. The aim of Who Dunnit? Mystery at the Museum is to figure out ‘Whoodunnit?’ by asking your opponent’s questions relating to who, what and where and then eliminating suspects when they have been thoroughly interrogated with yes and no questions and cleared!

Who Dunnit Game Review

A totally fun spin on other guessing games, giving players the opportunity to solve the who, the what and the where facts about two crimes that have been committed at the National Museum. The winner is the first player/team to figure out who took what priceless treasure and hid it where in the museum.

The see-thru evidence boards are actually quite funky and most importantly, sturdy! It is very easy to set up, simply clip the evidence boards into the frames and then let the fun commence. I personally love this game as there isn’t a lot to set up, you can put it back in the box set up so that it’s ready for the next game and it’s easy. After a day of work, it’s a nice, relaxing game to play with family but it still has the fun factor about it. Children will find it very easy to set up and play too! Plus, it is super easy to travel with, making it ideal for visits and trips away!
Who Dunnit? retails at £19.99 and can now be purchased from store such as Smyths Toys online and in store.

I hope you have been inspired by the games above, they really would make fantastic Christmas gifts!

However… getting to this point, you certainly deserve a little treat, so how about a giveaway to win one of Christmas 2020’s most wanted toys?

Based on the classic ‘hot potato’ passing game, Popcorn Poppin’ (RRP 14.99) has its own modern twist! The objective is to pass the popcorn to the next player before it pops! A fun game everyone can join in with – aimed at children aged 4 years upwards. So, how would you like to win a Popcorn Poppin’ game?

Maybe we need to consider starting a Christmas list. As we missed out on planned break :- Coronavirus / covid 19 Lockdown, etc. Though we would like a break away, somehow just can’t count on that happening. Feel we are in need of some Good Luck, Good Experiences, etc. Obviously we will get gifts for each other, etc if possible. Keen to have some Sense of Security, Stability, Home Comforts, etc.
