What a cool idea! Instead of grating a hunk of cheese, this parmesean comes in the shape of a pencil that you then "sharpen" off for use. There are even different flavors available, and the color at the end denotes them. Fun and functional... I'm sold.
One of evolution's gems: this animal has no predators in its natural habitat (galapagos islands). Therefore it has lost its capacity for fear. As a result it nearly went extinct when humans found it an easy prey. It is very clumsy on land, hence the name booby. Additional bonus points for the blue feet of course!
Excellent direction and brilliant script. If you had any doubts about Colin Firth's talent, consider this: the script did not specify where or when he should stutter. There are no pauses in it. Colin decided when and to what extent the stutter should be. Every. Single. Time.
Very simple rules, should be fun for kids 8+. Random element makes for some great replay value and hilarious combinations. High quality game pieces make this a gorgeous game to play.
The characters should provide a great opportunity to make your own game pieces from clay.
