The Complete 7-in-1 Magnetic Family Game

Featured post I still prefer games with Skaven.

A couple of weeks ago I went to the Greek Island of Hydra. Which was very fancy. Roaming around the airport at 4am, the Lady and I found ourselves buying a 7-in-1 WH Smiths Magnetic Board game set. As we played them, I found myself examining them with my adult, videogame-warped critical mind and thought it would be a good idea to review the lot of them. Writing RPS’ most expansive review of all time for a cheap-ass magnetic box-set struck me as funny, but they became a wide-ranging series of essays about the nature of gaming. No, really. It surprised me too, as I had no idea where I was going with most of these, and was pleasantly surprised they ended up where they did. Here’s the complete index:

1) Chess.
2) Dominoes.
3) Chinese Checkers.
4) Draughts.
5) Ludo.
6) Backgammon.
7) Cards.

You can buy your own 7-in-1 Magnetic Family Game here. Hmm. It’s got no user reviews on WH Smith’s site. It is tempting to cut and paste these 8000 words into it.
