Dragon Valley is an engaging game for the whole family for players age 6 and up.

The goal of the game is to return the dragon younglings to their valley before the nasty wizard gets back to his tower and catches them playing fireball near his home.

Crazy Circus is a simultaneous puzzle solving game where three animals stand on two platforms and you must issue spoken commands to change their configuration

For example, "Ma", which moves the bottom animal on one platform to the top, or "Ni" which swaps the top two animals on the two platforms.

As a result, the game is a race to shout out multi-syllable commands such as the eponymous "MaNiKi", or "LoNiMaSo".

The first player to do so correctly wins the target card, and whoever collects the most cards wins!

Ivor the Engine, from the legendary Smallfilms studio, is one of the most enduring children's series in British television history. Beautifully-illustrated by Peter Firmin and charmingly-written by Oliver Postgate, the books and films of Ivor's adventures with dragons, choirs, circus elephants, sheep and snowdrifts have enchanted families for over 50 years. In 2014, Ivor makes a glorious return to print with the release of the Ivor the Engine family board game from Surprised Stare Games Limited. For between three and five players, from eight years and up, the Ivor The Engine board game takes approximately an hour to play and is set in the top left-hand corner of Wales as represented by a beautiful new map drawn especially for the game by Peter Firmin. Players must travel around the branch railway line clearing flocks of delightfully-shaped wooden sheep pieces ('sheeples') that are stopping Ivor from doing his work; when the sheep have been removed, gaining you points, then familiar jobs from the classic stories can be completed for even more points. The game also comes with a specially-created deck of cards each illustrated with familiar scenes from the original series and some with brand new pieces of Peter Firmin's wonderful artwork.
