The Amazing Mammoth Hunt
"My son received the Amazing Mammoth Hunt for his birthday and we have had loads of fun with it already. It is a great board game and lovely that they are learning world geography at the same time."
Claudia F, Surrey, United Kingdom
miQube Board game & Puzzle
“The concept of using colours instead of numbers makes it incredibly easy for the kids to get a handle on. They love playing with the iQube daily, challenging each other on their logic and spatial awareness. … the kids love it and find it a lot of fun and its a great way of getting them to use their cognitive thinking skills at a higher level.”
Annette Peterli, St Helliers Bay Primary School, Auckland, New Zealand
Foursite Strategy Game
“We had so much fun playing Foursite and liked the fact that the difficulty level increases as the board fills up. Thanks for great value & good fun!”
Carol & Geoff Dunn, Hillsborough, New Zealand
The Amazing Moa Hunt
"My two children absolutely love Moa Hunt. It is such a fantastic board game and at the same time they are learning about New Zealand geography! I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting fun and without the kids even knowing it is a great learning experience.";
Susie, Holly (8) and Max (5), Tauranga, New Zealand
“In a nutshell I think the board game is fantastic, there are many different levels of difficulty you can play the game at, depending on the age group and ability of the child. The board game can be simple and very quick for those playing just one on one at the basic rule level, so it is great if you only have a small amount of time to play the board game and have smaller children. It involves great puzzle solving skills on a three dimensional level , as the crates are built on both the horizontal and vertical. I am very excited by the board game and can’t wait to play it at the increasing levels of difficulty and in a more advanced way as my children’s skills improve and so make it more difficult to play against each other, as we climb and block each other from reaching the top of the crates.”
The Dalton Family, New Zealand
The Great Goanna Hunt
"This is an awesome board game! My kids and I love playing it together and we are all learning so much about Aussie geography."
D McPherson, Parent, Hamilton
"What we love about Cognition is that it's not just a trivia board game. In fact, the more we played it the more we realised that it's about understanding human psychology and working out how your opponents think. Figuring out the answers was just the first step in doing well in this board game."
Julie Tucker & Friends, Christchurch
"Both older and younger minds need to be challenged and want to learn - this board game does both, plus it's lots of fun!"
Lynn Berresford, Registered Psychologist, Auckland
Five Men Standing
"Just been having a little play with your rugby game, Five Men Standing. Absolute genius, top marks."
Jonathan Brown, Senior Game Designer, Wellington
"Just wanted to endorse this fantastic board game! Baradene bought 10 sets last year for Enterprise Studies and the response from the girls has been enormous! It introduces the concept of risk taking, which is an important concept for entrepreneurs. A key feature is that it uses NZ businesses on the board game. It is a fun board game, suitable for the whole family. In fact, I joined in and played with one group that was short of players and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thoroughly recommended"
Mrs LinErn Soh, Teacher of Economics and Enterprise Studies, Baradene College.
"I have to say that it was a massive hit this Christmas!!! Being kiwis living in Australia my family were delighted to play a game not only made by a kiwi, but featuring iconic kiwi companies. I cannot wait to get my Aussie Army mates to play. Thanks for the hours of entertainment!!"
Toni McBride, Retail Customer, January 2012
"The students absolutely love Gumption! I taught my maths class (the top Year 8s), who were instantly hooked, and they took it back to their homeroom classes to teach the rest of the students. I’ve seen it in action in classes since then, with students of all abilities having an absolutely marvellous time with it. Let me know if you develop any more games!"
Christine Sangster, Deputy Principal at South Wellington Intermediate School
