*Who Wants To Be A Millionaire The Board Game with Digital Lifelines

   *I received this product for free but the opinions are my own.

Now that the nights are getting dark at around 4pm and with the first snow of the year I am staying in more and more rather than venturing out in the freezing cold so finding things to keep me busy is the name of the game.  I was kindly sent the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Board Game* which includes digital lifelines to try out which is ideal at this time of year.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire The Board Game with Digital Lifelines
The game comes with a game board, answer tokens, lifeline tokens, playing tokens and over 700 questions. Its suitable for 14 years + and you need 2 or more players. 

To play, you choose a player to act as the host (the host still gets to play and the role of host changes after each question). The host takes a card from the £500 deck and reads out the question and multiple choice answer options. All players including the host then place their answer tokens face down in the final answer section of the board. Once an answer is in the final answer section it cannot be changed. If a player doesn't know the answer they can use a lifeline instead. Each lifeline can only be used once and each player must give an answer to every question. Once everyone has answered, the players who gave the correct answer move their playing tokens one space up the money tree on the board. Players who answer the question incorrectly go back to the start position but can still play the rest of the game. The host position then moves to the next player and they pull the question from the deck matching the highest player on the money tree (so if the highest player is on £50000 even if the rest are on £1000 the question is taken from the £50000 deck. The play continues until the first player reaches £1 million on the money tree on the board or if no one reaches that point after 40 minutes the player who is the highest on the money tree wins.

If you wish to use the lifelines this is done digitally by scanning the QR code on the question card on your phone and picking 50:50 (where it will remove 2 answers), Phone a Friend (where you can either phone one of your friends or ask anyone not participating in the game if they know the answer), Ask the Audience (where it will show you a graph with the audiences answers) or you can Ask the Host (who will let you know what answer they gave to the question). Is that last one a new one in the actual TV show as I don't remember it originally, but I flipped onto the show the other day and the participant was asking Jeremy Clarkson what he thought the answer was, which I thought was strange but I think it was the celeb version so just thought that was on the basis that they aren't necessarily great at quiz's like the regular contestants that go on the show.

This is a good laugh and can be played individually or in teams if you have more than 6 people. I really enjoyed playing it although I never got anywhere near the £1 Million spot.

The Ginger Fox Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Board Game* costs £24.99 from Smyths.
