Asmodee : Get Packing Review
Part two of our Bloggers Board Game Club from Asmodee brings us Get Packing. A multiplayer puzzle game where you have to be the first to pack your suitcase, close it properly to go on holiday.
Designed for players aged 6 years +. This game can be played from 2 to 4 players and can last anywhere between 2 to 15 minutes depending on the age and game difficulty level.
Included in the box you will be given everything you need to play;
- 4 Plastic Suitcases
- 30 Destination cards (10 Easy Level, 10 Medium Level and 10 Difficult Level cards)
- 52 Plastic Packing Items
- 1 Instruction Booklet
How To Play
The rules of this game are fairly simple, it’s the gameplay that gets slightly trickier. Each player needs to take a suitcase and a set of packing items, items include hat, ring, beach ball, suncream, teddy, sunglasses, shorts and much more. With your suitcase and items you are ready to begin play.
Depending on the level of difficulty you want to play you can choose from the Easy, Medium and Hard level Destination Cards. This is shown by the number of suns by your chosen holiday destination. To help spice the game up you can choose to play all 3 levels, by shuffling the deck of cards and then playing the next card at the top of the pack.
With the destination card chosen, turn it over. On the reverse it will show the items which need packing for your holiday. From here you need to pick out all the items you require, pack them in your suitcase and be able to close the case. This is where things get tricky but fun. All your item pieces are cut to certain shapes, thus turning your case into a puzzle. You need to arrange the order of your items in your case to ensure you can pack everything in that you need.
Items can be packed over 2 levels to utilise the most of the space within your case.
End Of The Game
The player to pack their suitcase first and close it successfully is the winner of the game.
We have fully enjoyed this game, the kids love playing this over and over again. Leah aged 7 isn’t the fastest at this game, but she really does enjoy puzzles and is determined (at most times) not to let it beat her. Lewis, aged 9 reacts slightly faster at the game but expects answers quicker, which results in some frustration. But he’s found by slowing down and concentrating he is now getting good results.
All in all its a great game, and the kids will enjoy it for a lot longer yet.
