Lockdown and homeschooling has meant a lot of extra time at home, and with normal plans and activities cancelled or postponed, I have definitely been looking for some games to help to pass the time at home. My children love to play board games with each other and as a family, but we have pretty much exhausted the ones that we have!
Lex-GO is a word game from Waddingtons Number 1 of London, and they have two new additions at the moment – Harry Potter and Disney. They are really simple to play, and with each round being quite fast-paced, it is not like a game of Monopoly that is going to take hours and hours. It is easy to get out, set up, and play, when we have some time before dinner, in-between homeschooling, and to play at the weekend.
Educational word game
Lex-GO is a game for all of the family, but works well as an educational tool because you can test your word skills. How it works is by reaching against the other players in order to use up all of your tiles, either by creating words or by adding to or swapping with other player’s tiles. It is fast-paced, fun, and as a result, is a great tool to help children improve their word skills!
The game says suitable for those aged 8 and over, and I wouldn’t recommend anyone much younger to play it, to be fair. My daughter, 7, has been playing it fine, and as enjoyed finding words to put together, but any younger and I’m not sure they’d get much enjoyment from it.
Great for travel
Although we aren’t travelling anywhere right now, when we can, the fact that all you need is a flat surface to play, and the tiles are all contained in a zip-up pouch, means that this will be a great game to pack in a backpack or a suitcase.
In the Disney version of the game there are some special characters on tiles, that can mix up the round! This could be anything from wrecking someone else’s tiles with Ralph, or being frozen from playing for ten seconds with the Olaf tile. In the Harry Potter version of the game, there are spells that you can cast on the other players on certain tiles, from Stupefy to Revelio!
Watch how to play here:
The range of games are really fun, and I would honestly recommend them to you all. If you have children in school, or you like to play word games yourself, then these would be great games to have in at home – especially at the moment.
