If you find Monopoly too confrontational, Trivial Pursuit too boring and Scrabble never ending, then there may be a happy medium – it’s called The Gin Game.
Made by Talking Tables, this board game is described as “the ultimate board game for any gin lover”.
It’s a game of chance and twists that will test your gin knowledge. Work your way around the board by answering Mixology cards, Gin-ius cards and History cards.
Inside the box features a gameboard, 1 die, cards, gin player pieces and an instruction sheet.
The game is designed for between 2-6 players so it sounds ideal for a dinner party scenario where tipsy guests can show off their knowledge and skills on the board.
Despite it being a gin-themed game the official rules don’t call for any actual gin consumption but it should be possible to add some extra rules which change the experience into a drinking game style scenario if that appeals.
It seems like gin-based games are in the air at the moment with a new boozy gin-themed bingo night launching soon.
We’re looking forward to the next gin-based game to come our way, the more the merrier!
Talking Tables The Gin Game is available from Amazon priced at £14.84. Images from Amazon.
