We were sent this awesome Guinness World Records Challenges Board Game in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions and photographs are our own.
Nothing says family like a board game am I right? It is a great way to bond, have fun and really test your relationships. Well, we had the pleasure of being sent the new game from the guys over at Guinness World Records. Their new game Challenges is about taking your knowledge and skill set to the next level!
What The Game Includes
The game comes in the usual square sturdy box with the game board and plastic liner holding the cards, dice and counters. The game includes :
1 Guinness World Records game board
150 question cards on different Guinness World Records
20 Challenge cards – 10 cards of ’30 seconds’ and 10 cards of ‘best time’
1 booklet of guidelines ( which you will need, trust me)
1 notebook to keep everyone in check!
1 ping-pong ball

There is also a bottle of water and a timer/stopwatch (you can use your phone).
