Frozen 2 Shuffle Game Review

(ad - Gifted)

Any Frozen fan would love this game because its fully frozen themed! Shuffle has cleverly designed a frozen card game that has 4 games in one and I was sent some to tell you all about. 

So the 4 games that are included are Snap, Pairs, Action Game and Happy Families. You get 1 set of cards and you can play all 4 games with this one set. 

The first game we played was snap. 

I'm pretty sure most of you will know the rules of the game. You share the cards between each player and then on your turn place a card down into the middle, if 2 cards are the same, the first to slam down their hand and shout snap wins! For this version of the game you are matching colours and characters, so Elsa on top of Elsa which are both light blue, would be a match. This game got super competitive and slightly violent with the hands slamming down (haha) but they really loved playing it.

Happy Families is all about getting a family of 4, so you need to get yourself 4 Elsa or 4 Olaf for example. Each player gets 4 cards, then the rest go into a pile face down. To play, the first player asks the next player if they have a card that could complete their family. If not then they pick up from the pile. If a player does have it then they pass it over and the player gets to take another turn. The first player with a full family wins.

Next up is Pairs, again its a pretty simple game we have all played before. You place all the cards face down and then you have to pick up 2 of the same colour to have a match. The person who collects the most wins. 

Then you have Action Game which is one I hadn't heard of before, each player gets 5 cards each. Place the remaining cards on the table face down. The goal of the game is to get rid of as many cards as you can as quick as you can. The game is a little like the adult game blackjack and you have to match what has been put down before, so you can match a symbol at the top of the card, or a colour. If you can't put down, then you pick up. A few of the symbols have meaning to them, for example if you get ones with arrow symbols on then this means you need to swap with another players cards. The first player with no cards left is the winner. 

The girls found the action game a little more complicated than the rest, but it was my overall favourite to play. 

The game does come with instructions but you can go to the website and watch videos that give you a better idea of how to play. 

The best thing about this is that its £4.45 for the pack, which is amazing to say you get to play 4 games. 

If you would like to know more or see how the game is played then head to the Shuffle Website now and check it out.
