Nudge - Eco-friendly Strategy Board Game Review and Giveaway. (Sent for review).

We like to find new and exciting things here at The Brick Castle and Nudge definitely counts. An addictive, quick-paced but intelligent board game for 2 players, which is incredibly simple to learn yet hard to master, and entirely created from fully recyclable materials.

We've been sent a copy of Nudge for review, and I also have one to give away to one of my readers.

Nudge Review - Addictive Family Board Game in cardboard packaging

The game arrives in the regular post, packaged in a recycled and recyclable bio-plastic bag. Your game is all contained in a sturdy cardboard box, which is a great shape and size for storage.

Inside the box the contents are really very beautifully arranged. An envelope containing the 6 Bioplastic Game Discs and the 5x5 Game Board, tied with string. There is absolutely no waste here and total commitment to the environment, while still being a beautiful game. No plastic, no extra dyes or even extra card or paper. The game rules are printed on the back of the box.

This is a strategy game with similarities to games like Chess or Draughts. Each player has 3 Game discs, which can move in any direction except diagonally.

Each turn a player takes 2 moves, which can be 1 move of 2 spaces, or split between 2 moves of 1 space each. The aim of the game is to nudge one of the opposing player's discs off the edge of the board.

2 or 3 discs in a straight line can be moved as if they were a train, all together, either 1 or 2 spaces. No train can go sideways, only forward or backwards.

When your train is longer than your opponent's, you can push it, and if you planned it right, 1 of their discs will fall off the edge of the board and you'll win the game.

Nudge really is a lot of fun to play, and it is addictive. A game can be over almost immediately with one foolish error, or competitive masters can spend ages mulling over each move. Generally each game takes about 5 minutes, and especially if you lose, you just want to play again.

The designer of Nudge, Dan Bramham, has created an eco-friendly strategy game that is incredibly simple and quick to play, but very moreish, as you can always improve your gameplay.

The potato-based counters will biodegrade in 3 to 6 months if planted in the ground, but it'll last for longer than you'll ever need it on the shelf. Not only is Nudge made from 100% eco-friendly ingredients, but 1% of all game sales will be donated to The Woodland Trust - one of our favourite charities, also supported by Timber Festival.

Nudge - the eco-friendly strategy board game is now available from www.nudgegames.co.uk current rrp is £9.99 (plus £1.99 1st Class UK Shipping). You can also find them on social media @nudgegames.

  10. This happened to me. My friend and I were at the rugby and after the game went to get a coffee which is near where the players come out after the game. I said to her "Wouldn't it be funny if G (my favourite player) comes out while we are stood here, and she nudged me and nearly knocked my coffee out of my hand, as he was stood behind me at the time signing autographs but had heard what I said lol.
