Have you ever played Dobble?

No, of course not – you’ve never even heard of it, have you?

Well, a couple of weeks ago, I was visiting friends in Oxford and we popped into a games shop that their 10 year old son loves. It is called The Gameskeeper and it is in Cowley Road.

I explained to the friendly woman behind the counter that I was about to visit my granddaughter in Nairobi and wondered if she could recommend a game that was small, light and suitable for a six year old.

She suggested a card game called Dobble and I bought it.  After one week in Nairobi, I’ve played it lots of times with my granddaughter Catrin (she’s won every time!) and we’ve also played it with several of her slightly older friends.

It’s been a great success so, if you have or know young children, you might want to check it out here.
