Sshh! Don’t Wake Dad Boardgame Review and Giveaway! 

Careful now … you can tiptoe about, working your way around each noisy hazard, but whatever you do …  SSHH! Don’t Wake Dad!

Here’s another brilliant electronic board game from Drumond Park – the highly entertaining SSHH! Don’t Wake Dad! (rrp £22.99, for 2 to 4 players, age 5+). The central figure in this novel new game is a ‘Dad’ who snores loudly (yes, really!) throughout the game.  And wait for it… he jumps bolt upright from his bed when he’s woken from his sleep by mischievous children on their way to find treats!

The aim of the game is for young players to make their hungry way along a truly hazardous route from their own beds around – and even right over! – Dad, who is sleeping in the middle of the board.  They’re all racing to reach the kitchen fridge – where a slice of tempting chocolate cake awaits. But on their way across the board, they have to avoid landing on the howling cat, the tinkling bell and the hooting owl… That’s because if one of them wakes the slumberous Dad from his dreams – Aaghh!!, he’ll rise up with a start and staring eyes… and send them scurrying back down the board – to where they left their slippers!


Harry loves this game! As it’s for ages 5+ so I thought it would be a bit of a hassle to play with him as he’s only 3 1/2 but actually it was really fun as he understood more than I anticipated. He understands where you start and where you have to finish (we’ve never actually got to the end before as Harry has beat me every single time) When it’s his turn I have to tell him which place to move his counter to and then we look together to see if he has the card that he landed on. He does understand because he cheers if he has got the card and he doesn’t have to press the alarm clock which could wake dad. And when he does have to press it, I tell him the number and he press’ it and counts himself. It’s such a fun game that even the teenagers have wanted to play it with him too 🙂
