This is a game perfect for the whole family. Particularly so if you have fans of the Prehistoric era in the household. The whole concept of playing bingo is such a simple premise, so no time is wasted on explaining long and unfathomable rules. You can jump straight in to game-play and everyone is happy.
There are two ways of playing this game. The first is just like the normal bingo game, you have a caller who pulls out a dinosaur card, the players check to see if they have the matching dinosaur on their board; if they do, they can cover it with a circle. The first one to cover all the dinosaurs on their board must shout "Bingosaurus!"
The second more difficult way of playing this game is you have to guess from the clue given whether you have that particular dinosaur on your board. This is where the information booklet comes in handy. Players can have a read of the booklet beforehand and not only does it contain lots of interesting information but also contains the correct pronunciations of the dinosaur names.
The illustrations of the dinosaurs are adorable and this would definitely be the type of gift I would be looking for when shopping in a museum shop for example. I was particularly pleased that up to 8 players can play this game.
