History Heroes: KINGS & QUEENS quiz card game

History Heroes: KINGS & QUEENS  quiz card game contains individual, beautifully illustrated cards of forty key British kings and queens from Alfred the Great to our present day queen, Elizabeth IIEach card is illustrated to represent the individual monarch in history and shows their dates, her ‘house’ and seven gripping facts about them, including a joker fact about each character to surprise and/or entertain. Discover which monarch’s huge stomach exploded during his (oops, a bit of a clue there!) funeral, creating a terrible stench and who was described by one Victorian historian as ‘the most perfect character in history’.The game also contains a card with the famous rhyme to help all players remember the order of all the kings and queens from 1066 to the present day.There are many ways of playing the History Heroes: KINGS & QUEENS card game. We provide suggestions  in the box on how to play and you can make up your own rules too if everyone playing agrees to them! The aim of any History Heroes game is simple: you win the game by winning the cards and you win the cards by guessing/knowing the facts. You can use the images as clues and you can use the different levels of facts to make it as easy or as hard as you want to play the game. Different people can play on different levels of fact within the same game so that all ages and stages can play together. The green facts are the easiest working down to the red facts, the most difficult. You can, of course, use the joker fact at the bottom, too, to overrule them all!

It looked
fab, brightly coloured and visually appealing. Good for travel as it’s compact.
Packaging bright, visually appealing with great graphics. Clear instructions
and simple to follow. Love the flexibility of the rules to enable children of
all ages to play.My son easily understood the game as quite a simple concept. Definitely easy to play although we stuck to
the green (easier) facts as he’s not done the Kings & Queens of
England/United Kingdom at school. The whole concept; learning should be fun and
this makes learning about the kings and queens of England/United Kingdom fun. Learning
should be fun! The younger children (5 & 2 yrs) struggled with it a bit
just because they didn’t know the facts and got a bit annoyed they never won
the cards, although they loved the concept and the pictures on the cards. A bit
of help from Mummy and Daddy and playing in teams definitely increased their
enjoyment. Quality is great, well packaged, beautifully printed and not too
flimsy. It’s perhaps a little expensive for a pack of cards but actually when
you look at their potential and how much learning and enjoyment can be got from
them I think the price is not unreasonable. We would buy this game and in fact
we look forward to buying and trying other History Heroes packs. I would
recommend. Visually appealing and a fun
educational tool that the kids don’t even realise they’re actually learning
with. Definitely useful for travelling/holidays as it’s compact and lightweight
but robust enough to travel with and there aren’t any little pieces to lose!
We’ll definitely be buying and trying other History Heroes packs as the kids
really enjoyed playing this. Elizabeth Fowle – Samuel 8 Years

Good sized cards for little hands to
hold, bright and colourful with full illustrations. The cards are a lovely size
for kids to hold, the packaging is bright and colourful with fun illustrations
on the front of the box, certainly eye catching. Instructions very clear and
even give you other options to broaden the appeal of the game to younger ages
which was useful as Hugh’s little sister wanted to play also. Yes he did
understand the concept of the game. although given he didn’t know much about kings
and queens we basically started from scratch and used the cards to learn about
each king and queen. Easy (ish) as above we didn’t have much knowledge so we
did have to start with separate bundles of cards and from there after a few
plays add to the bundle which was fun as we began to talk about our favourite
kings and queens. Without a doubt the game and it’s contents are extremely
educational and a welcome break from YouTube videos!! We learned a lot about
kings and queens that we didn’t know, what was great was Hugh has started a new
topic at school-which is medieval castles so the game and cards were even taken
into school for golden time! I think the cards will also come in handy over the
next few years as 8 years + is probably the minimum age to completely
understand the concept of the game and it’s content. Hugh enjoyed it but his sister who is 4 got a
little bored quite quickly, not convinced it’s for younger children but she did
love all the illustrations and the joker facts. Perhaps folks with older kids
10+ would get more inclusive family time with it. The quality is super – the
cards are robust enough and a great size for kids – they do bend
after a while but unfortunately that’s the same with all cards! I think it’s a
great price given how long we spent looking and playing with them would much
prefer to spend on something like this than buy two magazines for the kids
which would collectively be more! would definitely be interested in purchasing
more- especially if they have a broad spectrum of subjects. I would recommend as would be a great gift especially for older
kids – perfect to travel with as well. As stated earlier, not convinced it is
for all the family but on a one to one with my 8 year old he enjoyed learning
about all the kings and queens and even as parents we learned a lot too! Will
definitely hang onto it and continue to bring it out as my younger kids get
older- lots of fun facts that appeal to kids. Lovely one to one time spent with
Hugh learning about a new subject we wouldn’t normally explore Vibrant
illustrations with fun facts which sparked a lot of questions and conversations.
Easy to pop in your handbag and bring out on journeys which was a welcome
change from digital devices. Kirsty Fulton – Hugh 8 Years

Good
packaging, looks a good game to play. the packaging was colourful and
interesting, makes it looks easy to play and educational. The instructions are very basic but easy
enough to follow. the children
understood the concept eventually but my childminder had to help them out.
my son played this game at his childminders with a 8 year old and 12 year old.
they all said how hard it was, they have learnt history at school but hardly
knew any of the answers. Unfortunately
my children did not like this game as they found the questions very difficult
to answer. the children struggled with
the basic answers let alone the harder ones.
Personally I feel this should be aimed at senior school children. I do
feel the price is a bit high. I
recommend this is aimed at 11+, especially for children who are doing more
history at school. my son and his friends all said how hard they found it, they
enjoy history at school but soon got bored and lost interest with this card
game as they don’t know all the historic kings & queens. Nicola
