Giveaway #702 : Win Drumond Park Word Bandit - closed - winner Jane Willis


Well, now that the clocks have gone back, there's no denying it ... autumn is upon us and Christmas isn't that far away ! We've packed away the outdoor toys for the year, brought out the hot drinks and snuggly blankets and are gaily working our way through some brand new board games, including this one called Word Bandit from Drumond Park.


There are four easy word games to be played in two teams of any number, so it’s a great way to get the whole family involved and having fun! I ended up playing a game against Juliette and Pierre, which worked fine.


The central part of the game is a one-armed bandit, which reveals the word combinations that you will use in the games. As you move around the board, the space you land on dictates which of the four games your team will play.


Things that begin with - (yellow space) using two Rows. Your playing piece is on a yellow space with a category printed on it (e.g. Boys’ Names). Spin the word wheels as before and you must come up with as many words as possible in that category, beginning with one of the letters on show. You can use any letter as many times as you like, as long as the words are different.


Famous People – (green space). The aim here is to find the initials of as many famous people as possible during one turn of the timer, and here, the letters do not need to be touching in the grid. Anything goes – from Beyonce to Snow White!


Winding Words – (purple space) using four Rows. Find as many words as possible that wind around the grid of letters. The letters of these words must follow-on either sideways, up, down or diagonally with words spelled in any direction, top to bottom, bottom to top, left to right or right to left.


Words Containing – (red space) using one row. Reveal just one row of letters, then spin the word wheels. Here, you have to call out as many words as you can that contain any two of the letters you have spun. The letters contained in your words can be in any order, and repeating the letters in your words is OK. Master wordsmiths may choose to think up words with all three letters in them!


Every now and again, you'll get a cheeky beggar's face come up. This is the Word Bandit and he means you have one less letter to play with. It’s unlikely, but if the Word Bandit appears on all three wheels (there is one face per wheel), the playing team gets a free spin.

It's a great game that the whole family can play together, especially if you can create teams with mixed ages and abilities.

RRP £24.99, age 8+
