Rating:                     ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Recommended age:  8 year-old ++   

Who would love this: Adventure lovers who want to learn more about surviving in hostile environments! 

We love watching “You v Wild”, an interactive TV programme revolves around helping the character making life-and-death decisions, navigating harsh real-life environments to survive and complete missions. I was excited when I discovered this “Operation Survival” game from Bioviva that teaches kids about survival in hostile territory! Thank you Divisible by Zero for providing a copy for review! 

Why I love ❤️ this game: 

(1) 360 Thrilling Survival Questions - The game starts with a dangerously thrilling setting - a plane crash has just occurred, and players are thrown into a remote no-man land. Our aim? To survive! The set includes 120 “Survival” question cards (with a total of 360 questions). Player that answers the most questions correct, beats the rest in challenges, and accumulates the most points, wins. The questions include multiple-choice, true-or-false, “guess the footprints” / silhouette of a creature etc. Answers and brief explanations are contained at the reverse side of the cards. We learned useful knowledge and skills such as what to do when a shipwreck occurred far from land (the advice is to stay still in order to avoid energy loss), and what to do when ice cracking beneath us (the answer is to lie down on stomach to redistribute the weight over a large surface). Awesome survival tips! 

(2) Challenges & "Actions" - When more than one player got an answer correct, players need to perform a challenge to break the tie. The challenges include matching silhouette with the strange creatures in reference sheet, taking turn to name animals starting with a selected letter, and running around the table and be the first to return to the seat. Love the “actions” element! 

(3) Strategy - The set also comes with 25 cardboard tiles and 5 adventurer’s pawns. Each of the tile depicts a natural habitat (savannah, mountains, volcano etc) and marked with survival points. Players need to strategise movement in each round to gain the highest score. 

(4) Sustainable Components - The game is made in France. The components are printed on recycled, recyclable paper and cardboard, using non toxic ink. The wooden pawns are made from beech trees harvested in managed French forest.

We LOVE this game!
