This is the second Horrible Histories BrainBox. Find out how truly awful our ancestors were.
Do you know how much each pyramid weighed? Or what a Roman Testudo was? Is it true that Greek soldiers had to pay for their own weapons and armour? Don’t just take their work for it; find out for yourself how ruthless these Awful Ancients really were with 54 picture cards illustrated and humorously worded in true Horrible Histories style!
The object of the game is to study a card for 10 seconds and then answer a question based on the roll of a die. If the question is answered correctly, the card is kept and the person with the most number of cards after 5 or 10 minutes is the winner. This simple concept can be played by all ages and in large groups as well as a 1 person game.
