What our experts think
Although our testers were already familiar with this classic game, they were eager to start playing. The simple instructions and luck-based means even younger children can join it – but older children and adults can enjoy the game too! This is a great way to encourage children to play together, developing social skills and learning to win and lose respectfully. Young children might find the swords tricky to slot in, so could need some help with this.
