Dough Nab is a fun new game from Ginger Fox based around doughnuts! It is essentially a card game with some fun props that can be enjoyed by all the family, with a suggested minimum age of 8 years.
The game comes with:
- 60 doughnut shaped cards
- 3 doughnut playing pieces
- turn tracker
- head baker winner’s hat
- rule sheet
We played as a family including my two children age 11 and 8 who both love playing games and were super excited at the prospect of a doughnut themed game. The large, durable doughnut playing pieces particularly appealed to them and they couldn’t wait to get started.
In each round the players are dealt 10 doughnut shaped cards with the large doughnut playing pieces sitting in the centre of the table. You then take it in turn to turn over a card and this is repeated around the table with all your eyes on the upturned cards and as soon as you spot certain things you step into action. For example if you can see 3 cards of the same coloured doughnut then you all race to grab the same colour doughnut from the centre. The first person to get it can then offload their ‘nab pile’ of discarded cards onto another player.
The object of the Dough Nab game is to get rid of your cards so the more on the ball and observant you are, the better chance you have to win. Other than the three main colour doughnut cards there are cards with different meanings such as a galaxy covered doughnut that represents any colour so helps you to find a full colour set even quicker. Then there’s the crumbs cards which simply mean you are unable to grab a doughnut if a colour set comes up in the cards. You then also have NAB! and DON’T NAB! cards to add extra fun into the game.
We found the game to be fast paced and the children loved it. We found it easier to play and work out some of the rules as we went along and probably played slightly our own version of it but Dough Nab was definitely a game that we all enjoyed and the kids asked to play it again and again.
The lucky winner of each game get’s to wear a baker’s hat!
The Dough Nab game by Ginger Fox is available from Debenhams and would make an ideal present under the tree this Christmas for fun and games over the festive period. A game for all to join in, the more the merrier up to 6 players for an entertaining and competitive bit of fun – who will get rid of their Dough Nab pile first?
