Retro Games For The British Summer

Posted on: 10 July 2008 by Gareth Hargreaves

The perfect solution for those rainy summer afternoons with the grandchildren.

Relive those childhood memories with a new generation of children with these retro games - and we have some to give away.

Flipping FishesEntertain the family on those rainy days when a trip outdoors is out of the question, such as Flipping Fishes.

This traditional game dates back to the 1930s and is suitable for all ages. It’s a race to flip the fishes with your ‘pan’ onto the ‘dinner plate’ – but watch out, those fish are super wriggly. This game of thrills and excitement will unite the entire family in laughter and chase the rainy-day blues away.

What could be more fitting for a great British holiday than a game of Family Bingo? With this super 1950’s themed set, you can bring all the fun of the seaside bingo hall to your very own tabletop. What’s more, as you use removable pieces instead of ‘dabbers’ to mark the numbers, the game cards will never get used up and worn out.

Tournig EnglandYet another fantastic retro game with an educational aspect built into the enjoyment factor is the charming Touring England map game. Based on a delightful 1930’s design, the aim of the game is to plan the best route between two points but try and avoid the hazards as you go! This geographical great is just the ticket to provide all-round family fun whilst waiting for the sun to reappear.

The Heritage Toys and Games range also includes Hopla, Laripino, The Beetle Game and Tweedledum & Tweedledee
