PlayPennies Competition: Win One of SIX Copies Of Mask 'n' Ask!

Mask ‘n’ Ask from Drumond Park (rrp £16.99) is a brilliant new board game which up to four people aged around 7+ can play together.  There are thirty top quality double-sided masks with beautifully designed, colourful animal faces on one side, and jokey-looking human characters on the other.  On the animal side, kids might find a Badger, Crab, or Elephant, for instance. And on the human side, the mask may Princess, Sailor or Wizard.   

Children can play on either side of the board.  Each player has a turn at spinning the spinner – and then asks the other players the question printed on the board, on which his or her playing piece has landed.  For human characters, this might be “Do I wear a helmet in my job?” and for animals it could be “Do I have stripes, spots or a pattern?”.  Their opponents have to give ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ answers, and the player then places a YES or NO token on the relevant space, to help them remember the answer. This strategy takes away the worry of having to think up a series of questions by themselves, in order to work out who they are – helping children to express themselves more clearly. 

When a player guesses his or her identity, they choose a new mask from the pile – and the first person to guess three masks correctly is the winner!  Certain to be a sure-fire winner this Christmas, this game is cleverly designed and fun for the whole family to play.

You can now win one of these awesome games for your family to enjoy as the nights draw in and the weather gets chilly.

    Years ago when my husband was studying and we had a young family, I would get them all in the car first thing in the morning (still in their pyjamas) to take him to the bus stop in order for him to get to college an hour's bus ride away. What we didn't realise until many years later was that the children thought that the bus shelter was their Dad's college.

    I use to work in a hospital (as a nurse) but now work in the community as a Health Visitor and my son always refers to me having been a doctor when I fixed people in preference to my current job looking at babies! He dismisses my correcting him when I say I am a nurse not a doctor!
