Miss Frugal was in one of those bored moods this afternoon after she came back from her friends house. You know the type of mood, where you can’t be bothered to do anything. She said no everything I suggested we do – until I came up with the idea that we should make our own board game.
(Check out the play on words in the title, not bad for a Sunday afternoon)
It took longer to think of a name for the game than it did to make the thing but in the end she decided it was going to be called the ‘Razzle Dazzle Game’.
We started by sellotaping four pieces of coloured card together, next we turned it over and drew squares around the edge of it. She wrote a message in each square, things like move forward two, move back three, have another go or miss a turn.
She also decided to have ‘Razzle’ cards and ‘Dazzle’ cards (a bit like Chance and Community Chest in Monopoly). The Razzle cards were all good things like ‘You are a princess move forward three’ and the Dazzle cards were bad things like ‘You stink, move back four’. She wrote in some of the squares around the board to pick up a Razzle card or a Dazzle card.
This was the finished product:
