Would anyone like to explain why its so cold? Is it cheaper elsewhere, game no good?

You’ve been shipwrecked on a deserted island with nothing but your wits and some string to save you. Thank goodness you’ve been reading your Dangerous Book for Boys! Use your skills to complete solo or group challenges, test your knowledge of facts from the book or put your mental agility to the test. Each success wins you a puzzle piece so you can “build” a raft and sail off the island. The first adventurer to travel along the whole track and complete their raft can sail away into the sunset in victory!

I recently purchased 'The Dangerous Book For Boys Game' as a birthday present for my son. What an inspired choice this was! It was a real treat to play a game which is challenging, fun, straightforward and exciting.

Just like the book, you are always learning something new, as well as having the opportunity to develop skills and techniques that boys of all ages would be proud to know! I highly recommend it as a present for all the family to get together and enjoy!


In terms of specifics the game involves being the first to complete the building of a raft inorder to leave a desert island. To do this you need to complete a series of mental and skill challenges, by collecting raft pieces, whilst protecting your own safe passage, by amassing 'resource' cards. All the while you are outwitting your opponents attempting to do the same, by throwing them off course and then using 'resources' at appropriate moments.

As board games go, it is very simple to follow; involves brainpower, dexterity and skill. Even when it's not your turn, you feel that you are learning something new. It's many faceted and three dimensional; you are constantly being asked to undertake something different and challenging.

The Dangerous Book For Boy's Game is a real 'breath of fresh air'.
