The Floor Is Lava is a fun book packed with 100 games. You can play these as a couple or in a group or even ALONE!!! How cool is that to tackle boredom?
Also, you can play these absolutely anywhere. Like in a car when stuck in a jam or in a thanksgiving party or in maybe in a farm on a picnic. Because these games are really simple and the diversity is praise worthy. Some of them can be played with just a pen and paper nearby. Some doesn’t even require that.
The explanation of the games are kept crisp and Ivan Brett does not bore you with elaborate descriptions. Each game is explained strictly within 1 to 1.5 pages. Number of Players, Difficulty Level and Estimated Time Required to play it is tabbed right at the beginning of each game. Then materials required is cited. And finally How To Play is explained in a couple of paragraphs.
I have played a few of them with my husband and ‘Hangman Mastermind’ has come out to be our favourite. ‘Hangman Mastermind’ can be played with two or more players and is basically a word guessing game. It is really easy and refreshing. If you love playing ‘Scribble’ you’ll love this too.
Then there’s another game named ‘Squiggle Challenge’ that I love to play. It is somewhat an idle drawing game with absolutely hilarious consequences.
Also, did I mention that these games can be played at ALL AGES?!!😎 YES!! This is a keeper.😍
I definitely recommend this book to everybody who’s planning to spend some quality time with their family and friends.
My Rating: 4/5
