Legend says that Blackbeard, the most dastardly pirate of all, buried his hoard of precious jewels on Treasure Island. Your pirate captain has taken you to the secret location of the island and now you must race your crew mates to find the most treasure.

Beware though; Blackbeard's curse says that things can only be removed from the island in matching sets of three. Search the island for rubies, emeralds and sapphires to add to your own booty pile and use treasure maps to help you on your quest.

Send parrots to plunder jewels from other pirates and lead a mutiny to become the new pirate captain and wear the captain's eye patch.

Every card can be matched in three different ways - colour, number or object. Finding three cards with a common matching characteristic allows you to remove the cards from Treasure Island to your booty pile. Keep track of revealed cards and remember who has found which jewels, so that you can use your parrots to steal them in this constantly changing game.

With five alternative ways to play there is endless fun to be had with this addictive game, that you will want to play again and again. Quick, simple and cards with special powers mean it is so much more than your standard memory matching game.

It's triple the fun and will get you all totally hooked! "A pirate-plundering, parrot-pinching, treasure-taking, memory-mastering fun game for all".

Frenzi is the craziest, fastest, flipping card game you’ll ever play with simple rules, it's quick to play, very exciting and totally addictive for both adults and kids.

Each player gets a base card with 3 unique characteristics (colour, number and shape). All 64 Frenzi cards are laid out in the middle and then everyone races together at high speed, flipping cards over so they match a characteristic of their base card.

Frenzi cards are double sided, with different characteristics on the front from the back, so keep your eyes peeled as cards are constantly getting flipped back over by other players, looking for a match. After 30 seconds the flipping stops, players pick up the cards that match their base card characteristic and count them to score. Play takes place over nine 30 second Frenzi rounds, each with a different objective (e.g. match colour, match shape or no match) and a game takes just 30 minutes.

It’s a lively party game that tests your observation, speed and reactions, and gets everyone out of their seats! 4 colours, 4 numbers, 4 shapes and 1 fast-fingered, frenzied, frantic, flipping fun game!

This portable game is fun, easy to learn, educational and highly addictive and makes a great present for any family member interested in geography or travel. It’s like dominoes but with maps, as you build a map of Europe, by connecting countries that share a common border. Stay one step ahead of your opponents, as you race to be the first player to play all your country cards on the table and win the game. Block your opponents by holding on to France or Germany or open up the Baltic States by playing Russia. Take a boat through the North Sea to the United Kingdom or transit by train through Spain to Portugal. Try not to get stuck with San Marino, or landlocked with Liechtenstein as you watch the country cards spread across the table. The excitement builds as you have fewer and fewer cards left to play, but less space to play them in as you reach the edge of the world. (The table’s edge). Cleverly designed so that you don’t need to know your geography to play, but playing rapidly improves your knowledge. A simple game with hidden strategic depth that gives it broad appeal to both children and adults, that you will want to play again and again. Suitable for 2-5 players. Age 8+. “This modern take on dominoes uses countries instead of numbers to construct a map of the world – a clever way to pass the time” The Sunday Times “Stick this in the Christmas stocking of a travel-mad loved one.” The Independent on Sunday (Get This section). MAPOMINOES – The game that takes you to the edge of the world.

Ski Run is an action packed race across the mountain where you try to be the first player back to the resort for the Après Ski.

Pick your route across the piste map board by riding up lifts and racing down runs, whilst trying not to Wipe Out! Will you take the easy blue, the intermediate red or the more direct but difficult black run? Watch out for ice, whiteouts, jumps and the big freeze, whilst hopefully avoiding getting lost or colliding with your competitors. Chase the yeti to find his shortcuts and hire skidoos or heliski to catch up. Call a stop at a ski station to delay your rivals and keep your eye out for opportunities to jump the queues or follow the leader!

The lead changes constantly in this dynamic game of fluctuating fortunes, where you try to use the right cards at the right time to stay one step ahead of your opponents.

A quick, brilliant, interactive game for all the family. Play at home or on holiday for essential après ski fun for all.
