Hedgeways Strategy Tile Game Giveaway (With Sprout & Gherkin) Age 7-99+

Hedgeways is a wooden strategy game which we were sent to review earlier this Autumn by Sprout & Gherkin. Designed for 2 players (although we have played a version with more), and recommended for anyone aged around 7-99+, it's fun to play, and a beautiful game which comes in the most amazing wooden box... 

Hedgeways strategy game for 2 players of any age. Sent for review.

Hedgeways is from the same people who make another gorgeous wooden tile game, Sproutword, and it's just as clever. There is no plastic packaging, in fact no plastic at all, and the box itself is part of the joy - created mainly from a single piece of wood, carefully cut to bend over and clip shut. That'll impress the Grandads...

Players take it in turns to place 1,2 or 3 tiles on the table. Tiles have to match in colour where they touch. Players earn a point for every 'field' they enclose completely. It's pick up and play at it's finest. There are no complicated rules and anyone can win - although you definitely get better as you play! 

Gameplay on table showing Hedgeways strategy game

Hedgeways is similar to Chess or Draughts in that you can try and think a few moves in advance, and force your opponent to make a losing move - or at least one which earns you a few extra points! There's a lot of scope for improvement as you play, and it'll take a long time to master. Recommended for age 7+, a younger gamer will struggle to keep up with a more experienced (or competitive) player.

We really like Hedgeways, and it makes a beautiful gift for someone of any age. You can find my full Hedgeways game review here, and it is available to buy now priced £25.99 on the Sprout & Gherkin website

I'm delighted that Sprout & Gherkin have offered one of my readers a copy of Hedgeways for themselves as an early Christmas present. 
Entry to the giveaway is via the Gleam form below. I use Gleam because it's fair, and randomly draws the winner for me. None of your details are used for anything other than administering the game, and then they're deleted.

  42. I think the biggest problem with Christmas dinner is also the biggest delight. It's the fact that the whole family is gathered together. My best tip is to get the family together more often. That way the once a year Christmas dinner doesn't take on such huge pressure.

    ReplyDelete
  43. We share the cooking of the Christmas Dinner. Hubby prepares & cooks the meat, I prepare all veg & then my brother & sister-in-law cut it up & cook it. My brother also makes the best yorkshire puddings EVER!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Don't overcomplicate things. It doesn't have to be prefect, it can be good enough. If everyone is happy that is all that matters.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I did my shopping earlier this year, it definitely saved me a lot of stress and worrying

    ReplyDelete
  46. pre-prepare as much as possible - wrap as you buy presents rather than letting them all mount up, and it's amazing how much of Christmas dinner can be at least partially prepared and then frozen

    ReplyDelete
