Frustration is a really easy game to play and is one of my niece favourite games at the moment, it also helps young children with their counting when they are first starting out and it does involve a little strategy but not much. My daughter is a bit too young to play but she sort of gets involved and in particular she likes to press down to make the dice jump around and effectively roll. I would say that it is suitable for kids over the age of five to play and the games do not usually take too long to complete.

Two to four players can play the game and each player has four counters, the objective of the game is to get each piece fully around the board and back into your safe area, the first to do this wins, pieces move in a clockwise direction and if you land on a rivals piece then they have to go back to the start so it is very much the same as ludo. You have to throw a six in order to start moving and you can have more than one piece out on the board at any time.

You use one dice and this is a bit unique as the dice is encased in a plastic dome in the middle of the board and you press down on this to make the floor of the dome depress and spring back to effectively throw the dice, this means you cannot lose the dice and it makes a loud clicking noise each time you shake.

This game is simple to play and while it does not exactly get by blood racing it can be fun to play a couple of times and after that I need a break but my niece enjoys it and at under a tenner it is good value.

Another good thing about it, as well as the lack of any complicated rules is that you can buy a game for under a tenner so it is a good price and will not break the bank.
