Kersplatt! is a fun new game release from Paul Lamond Games and one that has been thoroughly enjoyed here with the exciting aspect of splatting other players dough pieces! The game consists of a brightly coloured playing board, a deck of cards and four coloured pots of dough. Requiring 2-4 players and a suggested age of 6+, my two children aged 7 and 10 were keen to play along with mummy and daddy and see if they could splat our pieces and win.
The board for Kersplatt! is well made and folds into quarters for storing in the box. Each player needs to choose a colour, red, blue, yellow or green and the idea is to make yourself some dough characters and move these around the board without being splatted. Once you get two onto your home space you are declared the winner. To play you take turns in turning a card over and this determines your move to a space of either the colour or number you turn over. Or you may turn a card that allows you to Kersplatt! another persons playing piece. The kids loved this element of the game and thought it was hilarious splatting another player on the board. All of the squashed pieces remain on the board and those squares are out of action which means it makes it quicker to get your pieces around to the home spaces as the game goes on.
With two kids ready to play, we got started. With four of us playing it made it fun and competitive and was actually a game we all really enjoyed and would happily play again (well we already have a few times!). The kids thought it was great to create your own pieces and we ended up with some fancy creations that they were sad to see get Kersplatted! but that’s the nature of the game. A great family friendly game that is simple to play but fun and keeps kids entertained on rainy days, evenings or just when you are looking for something exciting to play!
