For over fifty years the Finnish board game company Tactic have built a reputation for its innovative and high quality, fun family games.
We were sent Doodle Doo to try as a family and see just how well it works for all ages. The game where you literally get to the travel through the intestines of animals to see just how far you can get when blindfolded! YES! You wear a blindfold and have to see just how far through from the throat to the, well erm, exit you can get before you veer from the path!
Not only that but if you do go outside of the lines the opposing teams or players get to press the whoopie cushion to let you know you failed! Nothing like the sound of a rip roaring fart to make you stop you in your tracks! The kids think it is hilarious and we must have played this for hours, I know I gave in long before the girls did.
The boards are wipe clean so you can play over and over again. There are 4 boards, each double sided with 2 levels of difficulty. The girls opted for the easiest which to be honest were hard enough for me too. The fact that no matter how much you look at the board, as soon as the blindfold is on your sensed completely go out of the window and that pen just takes its own path! I don’t think any of us actually made it to the end of any of the boards, it really is a lot harder than it looks. The game is supposedly approx 20 minutes but I think this obviously depends on how slow you want to go around the ‘track’ and whether the game is over as soon as the fart cushion sounds/if you allow the player to continue.
I think the novelty might wear off quickly with older kids but the younger ones would have hours of fun with the cushion alone so well worth it as it is currently less than £13 at most good toy stores and Amazon.
We were sent this game for the purpose of this review, all views and opinions are my own and genuine.
