Yay Games have a set of four games based on Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s The Gruffalo.
Games from the Deep, Dark Wood is available now and suitable for players aged four and up.
“What’s a Gruffalo?” is a memory game in which players are trying to find 10 tiles, but they begin face down, and you may only look for one part each turn.
“His eyes are orange….” has players collecting groups of three cards. Each card has a phrase that Mouse uses to scare animals away and so if you can obtain a set of three, you score a Mouse token. The first to five wins.
“Oh help! Oh no!” is a dexterity game where players are trying to hide their Mouse tokens.
Lastly, “The Deep, Dark Wood” is a pattern-matching game and race to place all six of their cards.
The set of Gruffalo games is the first time Brett J Gilbert, Tony Boydell and Andrew Harman have worked together. Previously, Yay Games’ Chief Creative, Harman successfully Kickstarted and published Frankensteins Bodies, a no-so-child friendly game in which players compete to build their monster from gory parts first.
