Frustration - Board Game
Price - £9.99 From Argos
Frustration is a Four player board game where the players must get there four pieces around the board by flicking the dice and the number that comes up is the number of spaces you move your piece. You can only start by flicking a Six and this can take some time and this is where the name of the game gets it title.
This game is simple so any kid can play it recommended ages are 5+ there is no skill involved so the child has just as much chance of winning as the adult or any older kids, this makes it more fair as in other board games the smartest child normally wins which isn't always a good thing.
The board game has slots which you put your Four pieces in which makes it more stable then other board games so if you knock it or move it the pieces wont fall of like other board games and you cant loose the dice as its surrounded by plastic so you shouldn't loose any pieces which makes it easier to keep in good condition.
The game can get quite dull quickly as all your actually doing is flicking a dice and moving your pieces as you try to get your pieces home before your opponents does and that doesn't make for great longevity. It is fun for a short period of time but as the game never changes you find it very boring quite quickly. Its even less fun if there is only two people playing the best thing about the game is seeing the frustration and the unhappy faces on your friends.
