Shhh! Don’t Wake Dad – Review and Give Away

We’ve been reviewing the game Shhh! Don’t Wake Dad and I’m sure it will be a great Christmas present. We do love our board games in this house and this one is a great addition. If you’d like to win a game yourself then why don’t you enter my give away at the end of this post?

Now, who snores? I know I do, but the winner in our house has to be Dad! In this game you have to get the treats without waking the snoring Dad. So just like real life then.

In the game, Dad is sleeping in the middle of the board, snoring away as usual. The hungry kids have to make their way from their beds along the hazardous route to the fridge to get to the chocolate cake, all without waking Dad.


Players are all dealt the same number of cards and take it in turns to spin the spinner.  Then, against the constant cacophony of Dad’s electronic snoring sounds (which give everyone the giggles!), they travel around the board.  Most of the spaces on which they land feature a picture, and if the player already holds the card that matches the image, they are safe.  But if not, they must take a deep breath and press Dad’s alarm clock down the number of times indicated on the space…

If Dad stays asleep, it’s “Phew” – and the game continues.  But if he wakes up, the player is sent back to their slippers, to begin the journey again.  But he or she does at least get to keep that hazard card, which will protect them should they confront that hazard again later in the game.

Dad is then settled back down to sleep…  Play continues, with plenty more twists and turns for everyone to negotiate along the way. Finally, one of them arrives in the kitchen. Here, the perils of Dad’s alarm clock have to be faced one last time…

The player presses the clock down…  Everyone holds their breath…
IF DAD DOESN’T WAKE, the player has reached that delicious
 slice of cake – AND WON THE GAME!

This game is bound to be played over and over and would be a fantastic Christmas Present. If you would like to win a copy then please enter via the widget at the end of this post.
