Dig In! Review & Giveaway

We have a new game here and we’ve been putting it to the test! We’ve been playing Dig In! from Drumond Park, and I also have a game up for grabs, so do read on…

A rocket!!! It’s the rocket!!! I got my rocket!!! Yes yes yes – aaargh!!! It’s a PENGUIN!!!

Dig and delve to complete your card – there are six crucial pieces to ferret out from the full-to-busting ‘Dig In’ bowl. Tricky, tricky… and we’ve not even mentioned the pop-up timer, which gives you just fifteen seconds of frantic rummaging before you’re done! Then it’s the pandemonium of the final round – forget ‘taking turns’ and just GO FOR IT, as all and sundry dive in for their missing pieces!

Simple, but incredibly addictive, Dig In is both hilarious and challenging; a whole new kind of game for kids of eight and over.

Dig In! Game

The first thing to say about this game, that I love, is how easy it is to set it up. Initially, it comes in the box with the pieces in a few plastic bags and the cards all attached to one another. It took me just a few minutes to have everything ready to play and the gameplay is so simple, it only needed a quick skim of the rules to get cracking. This is great when you have two children asking repeatedly to play!

After that initial set up, you do just keep it stored in the box all ready to go. You just grab the dish with the pieces in, select a card each and pop the timer out and you areΒ good to go.

It is so easyΒ to play, and though it is recommended for children aged eight and over, my four year old understands how to play this and can Dig In with us all! You each have a card with 6 items that you need to find in the dish. You take it in turns to find your pieces, with the timer on, using both hands. Once everyone has had a turn, you all dive in together, using just one hand, and the winner is then the first player to find all six pieces on their card.

It’s fast and frantic, and please do not mistake my saying that it’s easy to play to mean that it’s easy to find the pieces and win! They are all jumbled up in there so it can take some time to find them and once it’s a free-for-all and everyone’s hands are in the pot, it can get very tricky!

We all enjoy playing this one. Personally, it’s ease of setting up and clearing away is a plus for me, as well as it needing no batteries – I’m such a mum, aren’t I?! I like the simplicity of this, though it’s also a challenge for us all. You can play it for as long or as little as you have time for, which is also brilliant. The kids love the diving in part and my son likes to play with the pieces in between game-play! It’s definitely one for all ages, and the fact that it needs little explanation makes Β it an easy one to launch into with first-time players. A thumbs-up from us!
