Classics Top The Board In Battle Of The Games

Old school meets new in the battle for the top five board games in new research by consumer review site,

Due to the gloomy weather forecasts for this bank holiday, Reevoo looked at the top games, as rated by shoppers, to keep us all occupied.

It was victory of the classics with Pictionary, Monopoly, Taboo and Uno occupying four out of the top five places. The only ‘modern’ offering to sneak into the list was the Simpsons Chess Set.

Pictionary was the most highly rated game with 9.1/10 and some very positive reviews. Shoppers deemed the game “fun and educational” and “great family entertainment”.

Monopoly Nostalgia edition came in second with an overall score of 9.0/10. It got 9.7/10 in the ‘entertainment value’ category – the highest score out of all the games on the list.

Taboo made it into third place with the same overall score as Monopoly but just lost out in the design/build category. Whilst it still got a lot of positive reviews and 100% of people would recommend it, one shopper commented on the lack of cards which made it “very difficult to continue playing with a surprise factor”.

The only imposter to break up the party for the classic oldies was the Simpsons Chess Set, in at four. Again, it obtained the same overall score as Monopoly and Taboo but consumers marked down its educational value.

And the fifth most highly rated game was Uno. The simple, classic card game from the 1970s held off newbies such as the High School Musical game and Noel’s Deal or No Deal electronic board game. With the same overall score as the Simpsons, Uno was just pipped to the post in the value for money and design and build quality categories.

Chris Winstanley, spokesman for Reevoo commented “We often think that kids want the newest board games and toys, but this research shows that the old favourites are amongst the most popular. Reading impartial reviews, from people who have actually bought and used the product, is the best way to work out what’s going to entertain the family this Bank Holiday.”
