Over the last few weeks we have been trying out a selection of games from Megableu. We got a few games to try, but I’m going to tell you about our favourite: Cobrattack. This game is a bit like the playground game of Statues (can’t remember what we used to call it – it was something else I think), but combined with the traditional motif of a snake in a basket.
The players have to try to get emerald in the centre of the basket without being spotted and caught by the cobra. To do this they have to move closer when the eyes are green.But when the eyes are red you have to stand still and don’t let yourself be spotted moving. You can set the game to different difficulty levels depending on who is playing or how good they are. You could also have different settings for older children or adults.
Once you have been caught moving often enough the cobra will escape or if you have been successful you will have managed to get the emerald out before you were spotted. As you can imagine this is a lot of fun. A child can practise on their own too, although it’s much more fun to play as part of a group. We had loads of laughs playing it.
