The Three Little Pigs game is totally fabulous and my daughter asks to play it pretty much daily!
The simple rules of the game follow the well-known fairy tale story and once you have built (like a jigsaw) the board, you move around it trying to land on squares with straw, sticks or bricks to build your collection of little pig houses! You need to land on each one twice and each time you are given a corresponding piece of house wall. When you have two of any one, you can fit them together to build the house.
You have to watch out for opponents landing on a 'wolf' square though as when they do they get to spin the dial to see if they can blow your house down and steal one of your walls! The only house which can't be blown down is, of course, bricks!!
After collecting and building all three houses it's time to make your way home to the middle of the board before anyone lands on a wolf and blows one of your houses down! We love shouting 'WOLFIE' whenever anyone does and even when my daughter's houses get blown down she's in fits of giggles!
This is a really great game perfect for a three-year old but also thoroughly enjoyable to play as an adult! On more than one occasion my daughter has been 'out' first because she's won the game and my husband and I have continued to play to see who comes second... Perhaps that says something about us being a little bit competitive, ha ha!
It's super easy to understand and play, uses lots of good learning techniques and even just putting the board and houses together is great fun for them! I'd not been introduced to Orchard Toys before now. I'd heard of them but not really paid much attention! On the basis of how brilliant this game is I'm definitely going to be buying more from them in the future!
The game is for 2 - 4 players, for ages 3-6 and everything fits rather nicely in a slim-ish box with a handle on the top.
