I first came across the Speedy Beedy game when I attended the BlogOn Conference in September. I was walking around the brand den and this game really caught my eye. Mainly because it was so cute, bees and flowers? What’s not to love about that?! *This is a collaborative post as we were gifted the game to review – all thoughts and comments are honest and my own*. Thank you to the wonderful Vicki and Tactic Games for sending us this game to review.
What’s in the box?
3 plastic bees, 12 plastic stackable flowers, 33 flower cards, 12 stickers and rules for the game.
The game is really easy to set up. Firstly you need to put all of the stickers on the bottom of the flowers, making sure they match the colours.
I’ve popped a photo of the how to play above but it’s also really easy to play and we had so much fun together. You turn the top card so everyone can see the pattern that you need to find and then as fast as you can you need to pick up the flowers by pushing your bee on top of the flowers. Once you’ve picked up your fourth flower you need to make a Zzzz buzz sound.
When the runner up has finished collecting their flowers you have to turn over your flower stack and if there’s a bug on the fastest players bottom flower then the runner up automatically wins the round. The winning player then gets to pick the next card and you shuffle the flowers around again. The first player to collect 5 cards wins the game!
I can already tell that this game is going to be a family favourite as it’s been reached for over the past couple of days. It’s great for family fun and teaches colours and patterns to your little ones. We had a lot of giggles playing it together.
The game is for children aged 3+ and truly is a lot of fun even for adults. It would make a fantastic Christmas present that would last for years. You can buy the Speedy Beedy game from Debenhams it retails from around £13.60.
