Test Match

Board game by Crown & Andrews

Test Match was first made in 1977 and several updates have been made.

The  latest version was reviewed by 10 year old Daniel and his dad Laurence

 

 

10 year old Daniel's review: It's a good fun cricket game for a rainy day to play with all the family.  I was surprised by how realistic the game was and how involved we got while playing it. As a result of playing the game, I wanted to play real cricket with dad and I did. Dad reckons it's a good game because it kept me off the electronics. It will be a great game to be playing over summer with the family while watching the cricket on TV.

 

Laurence,  Daniel's dad, says: I was very impressed by the Test Match Game. When my son and I first opened it up we were surprised by the size of the field and the quality of the playing figurines. The design is very clever for the bowler and batsman and within a short time of practice we both became quite proficient at being the bowler and batsman. One of the things I like about the game, is that it can entertain two people on a rainy afternoon, or it can be the centre-piece of a fun afternoon with a larger group of friends. What's also great about this game is it is quick and easy to set up and can be played for thirty minutes while dinner is being prepared or for the more serious match can be played over a couple of days as "Fair Dinkum" Test Match. I'd definitely recommend it to be added to the shopping list for Christmas whether you are an avid fan or cricket or a "sometimes watch it on TV" person! It will be enjoyed by all who play it!

 

Editor's note:

We played Test Match over the holidays and loved it. It doesn't take long to get the idea of what to do and to get into the game. If you enjoy cricket, you are sure to love playing this game, suitable for children and adults,  whether adults only are  playing or a mix of kids and adults or just kids. Test Match is sure to be a  game we keep for quite a few years!

A fun alternative to modelling clay and its made from natural ingredients. It is easy to use, children just need to wash their hands before use, but no water is required or recommended to use with the sand. Its like having a mini sandpit which children can play with indoors and outdoors, so great for those  rainy days too or to play with friends. Four shapes are provided plus the main container, so little imaginations can be explored as they create castles and all sorts of other things. Get ready for some good fun!
