Summer is here, and that means our days and nights are spent at the campground. When it rains we love to sit around the table and play some board games together. “Don’t Step In It” is a game that the whole family can play together.
“Don’t Step In it” is to try and dodge the poops as you walk blindfolded along the mat. The game is designed for one or more players aged 4 and up.
The game comes with everything you need to play: game mat, blindfold, 4 cans of poop compound, spinner board and instructions (in both French and English). The first time you play, you will need to set up the spinner.
The kids had fun creating the “poops” for the game. There is enough compound to make 8 poops to place on your mat. The blindfold is less than perfect. It was quite large (big enough for an adult head) and it slides down quite easily no matter how tight you try to secure it. It is quite difficult for my son to get it adjusted for his sister’s head.
The kids had fun playing “Don’t Step In it” the first couple of rounds and then quickly lost interest. They haven’t asked to play the game since the first day we played. My children prefer games of strategy so this game isn’t suited to their personalities. This game would be fun to play at birthday parties or sleepovers – anyone of any skill level can play and have fun!
The mat is heavy duty and easy to wipe down. I would suggest having baby wipes or a damp cloth around to wipe your feet before and after you play. Just a word of caution, if your children are being silly on the mat it can slide around. I made my children wash their feet in order to help keep the poop compound clean. If you happen to ruin your compound you could easily replace it with homemade or store bought play dough.
The game can be played solo, but isn’t as fun as playing with two players.
While the game “Don’t Step In it” didn’t hold my children’s interest it is a well-built game and I believe that for children who like games like “Pin the Tail on the Donkey”, this game would be ideal!
