Nature/ Type: Board Game

A board game combined with delicious foods can never go wrong! “What’s In The Fridge” by Galt Toys modified the classic memory game by incorporating a fridge full of ingredients for strawberry smoothie, a sandwich, a pizza, and colourful cupcakes. This is one interesting game that makes you hungry and wants to play another few more rounds.
The set includes 24 small ingredient cards, a fridge board, 4 playing "food selections" with ingredients set out, some mouldy food cards, and an instruction sheet. The ingredient + mouldy food cards are placed face-down on the fridge board. The aim is to flip them around one at a time to match the food card in the player's hands by "memorising" the position of the ingredients needed. The game instruction is similar to the traditional "memory game", but this game relates to us in a happy way because it is all to do with preparing and making our favourite foods!
Why I love ❤️ this:
(1) Learn About Food Ingredients: an opportunity for kids to learn about food ingredients in a fun way using simple rules: each player takes turn to flip a card in the fridge over to reveal an ingredient. Place the card face down again if that’s not the ingredient that you are looking for. The player that first collected all the ingredients win the game. It is "challenging" for little kids, educative, "delicious" at the same time.
(2) Funny "Mouldy Food": I like the little twist of “mouldy food” in the fridge. This gives us a little laugh.
Overall, this is an awesome game. I wish it has more than just four types of food selection, and has a bigger fridge with more ingredients!
