DESCRIPTION: A 2-4 player matching game, with the aim of playing all your robot cards. Includes 40 x robot cards, 1 x 'paintbrush' card, and an instructions leaflet. Suitable for children aged 3 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: Robot Run is a simple, fun and educational board game for young children, ideal for developing colour and object matching skills as well as social communication and learning to take turns.

The game consists of a number of sturdy cards, displaying an array of friendly robot characters in various bright colours (10 different robots, each in four different colours). The instructions are clear and easy to follow.

To play, five cards are dealt out to each player, and laid face up in front of them. The remaining cards are placed face down in a separate pile.

The idea is for the players to take it in turns to turn over the top card of the pile and decide if they can match the card with one of their own cards, either by colour or type of robot. If the player can match it, they can play the card and get rid of it, but if the card cannot be matched, the player gains an extra card!

A special paintbrush card (i.e. a card with a paintbrush picture on it) allows the player to decide what colour they want that card to represent.

The winner is the first player to discard all of their cards. 

In our opinion, this is a fun game with straightforward rules that young children can easily follow, and some wonderful educational qualities.

BAD POINTS: None, other than there are lots of separate pieces which may be easily lost over time, as with any such game. 

PRICE: £7.50
