Paul Lamond – Room on the Broom


The Room on the Broom Dragon chase board game by Paul Lamond has quickly become a firm favourite in our house and I highly recommend it for any Julia Donaldson fans.

Bringing the Room on the Broom story to life you chosen creature moves around the board collecting the ingredients cards and trying to avoid the dragon. The game is fairly simple to play which means that even the younger generation can enjoy it. There is no dice to lose and the spinner is very well made. The cardboard playing pieces are hard wearing and slot into the bases securely.

The aim of the game is to collect the four ingredient cards and take them to the cauldron where the witch can cast the spell to make a new broom. You have to do that whilst avoiding the Dragon who wants some witch and chips for his tea. The board and playing pieces are beautifully illustrated and will have children wanting to play straight away, I know ours did!
