PRODUCT: Spin Master Headbanz Game (www.spinmastertoys.co.uk )Spin Master Headbanz

DESCRIPTION: A 2-6 player table game for children, where players must correctly guess what they are by asking questions! Includes 6 x headbands, 74 x cartoon cards, 24 x scoring tokens, 1 x timer and instructions. Suitable for children aged 7 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: If it's a fast-paced child friendly game you're after, then look no further than Headbanz, a simple question game for all the family to enjoy.

Headbanz is designed for a maximum of six players at a time, and has an uncomplicated and fun game concept that younger family members will be able to understand and take part in. The game includes a blue headband for each player - these are adjustable to fit varying head sizes, and a large number of picture cards displaying simple everyday objects, food items and animals, each displaying the words "I am a [descriptive name]"; in addition, a number of blue plastic tokens (or chips), as well as a small one-minute sand-clock timer.

To set the game up, each player places one of the headbands round their head, and is dealt one of the cards face down as well as three of the tokens. Without looking at the picture side of the card, the player inserts it into a special clip on the front of their headband - only the other players can see the picture! 

To play, each player takes turns to flip over the timer and ask each of the other players a 'yes' or 'no' question in an attempt to identify who, or what they are. A helpful list of sample questions is included. If you successfully guess the picture before the timer runs out then you can take another card and continue asking questions until your minute is up. For each identity you guess correctly, you can discard one of your chips. However if you give up, you will be dealt another token and another card! The winner is the first players to get rid of all of their tokens.

In our opinion, this is an short but entertaining game for a wide variety of ages, which is simple and fun as well as educational, with plenty of critical thinking and deductive reasoning required.

BAD POINTS: None that we can find!
