Bugs In The Kitchen Game Review

My Three love playing board games – two of them even go to an after school club on a Monday called Biscuits and Board Games just so they can play their favourite games over and over again. Recently we were asked if they’d like to try the Ravensburger’ Bugs In The Kitchen game. They jumped at the chance and couldn’t wait to give it a try.

What’s in the Box:

  • 1 x HEXBUG nano
  • 1 x 3D game board
  • 24 x utensils
  • 18 x cockroach tokens
  • 1 x die
  • 2 x doors
  • Instruction booklet
There is a little assembly needed before you can play the game, but the instructions are easy to follow so it only takes a matter of minutes to set up.

Bugs In The Kitchen (£24.99) can be played with 2 – 4 players aged 6 and up. The aim of the game is simple – trap the bugs in the kitchen.

Each player takes it in turns to throw the die and turn whichever utensils it lands on –  knife, fork, spoon or a question mark – land on this and you can turn whichever utensil you want.  By turning the utensils you can direct the bug into the trap. For every bug that you catch in your trap, you earn a token – the first player to collect 5 tokens wins the game. The utensils can be set up 3 different ways so that the start of the game isn’t the same time after time. It allows for gameplay to be mixed up a little bit and is sure to make each game interesting.

Each game they played lasted around 20 minutes and the boys wanted to play over and over again. They are huge fans of HEXBUG’s so they know how they move around when switched on – if you’ve ever seen them you will know that they just don’t stay still and whizz all over the place. They loved being able to stop the bug in its track and send him off in a different direction – they were also very sneaky with turning utensils that the other had just turned in order to stop the bug from falling into the others traps.

Bugs In The Kitchen can be bought from Amazon. We would highly recommend it – it’s a game the whole family can play.

I wish mobile app developers like Techtiq could turn this into an actual mobile app for a family to use.
