Don’t Rock the Boat – Review and Competition

When our latest product for review arrived this week, it got us thinking about pirate themed board games. At first we all thought there were loads, but after racking our brains we could only come up with Pop Up Pirate. Well now there’s another to join the ranks – Don’t Rock the Boat from University Games.

Don’t worry though these pirates seem pretty harmless, more cute in fact. As these pesky pirates are penguins.

The game is really simple to set up and play which is wonderful as it means since we got it we’ve played it everyday. It’s the perfect 15 minute fun filler if your short on time, or you can just go on and on when the time is right.

The game board is a boat resplendent with 3 Masts, which sits upon a wave. The object of the game is to balance your pirate penguins on the boat without making it tip and sending them overboard.

It’s a really fun little game for all ages, and is great for younger players as there are no rules to follow, just keep your penguin on the boat.

A neat little trick is that you can hang the penguins over the side of the boat, and over the rails of the crows nests by their little bandana ties. We all loved trying to perfect that move.

It’s not as easy as it looks to get your penguins to balance, but that’s all part of the fun. No one is guaranteed to be the winner, and everyone will eventually get the chance to be the winner. It’s brilliant family fun.
