Board games for teens review: Ginger Fox Which One?

Affiliate links*

Here is our board games for teens review of the Ginger Fox Games Club board game called ‘Which one?’. I tried it out with my husband and three tween/teen daughters. We absolutely loved it and I think it is going to become a firm family favourite.

Finding something to do as a family when you have a combination of tweens and teens is not easy. The first problem is that they are hardly ever home and the second is that we have vastly different ideas of what constitutes ‘having a good time’!

So, when I was offered to review some games from Ginger Fox I wasn’t entirely optimistic about how this was going to go. Nevertheless, I put the idea to the rest of the family and received an overwhelmingly positive response. Things were looking up! A few weeks later our first consignment of games arrived just before half term, so the timing was perfect.

 

Board games for teens review: Which One

‘Which one?’ is a question and answer matching game on a variety of subjects. You get points by matching the answers to questions in sets of 5 which are given on brightly coloured cards. You write your answers on the score sheets which are provided. The instructions are clear and it took us no time at all to get the hang of it. We genuinely loved this game and here’s why.

  1. It’s a good traveller! It would be a great game to take on holiday/camping when you actually get time to ‘play’ together because there are no small parts to move around and no complicated board to set up.
  2. It doesn’t take ages to play. We all know that teens have a limited attention span when it comes to family activities. Some traditional board games take so long to set up and to get going that certain members of the family have lost interest half way through and that leads to arguments. This one is short and intense and you can always play another round if everyone is still engaged with what’s going on.
  3. It covers a range of subjects. The subject matter in the questions is vast. You could be answering questions on anything from school subjects to Britney Spears Songs. There really is something for everyone.
  4. You get to gamble. It’s not just about answering the questions correctly. If you take a gamble and risk answering a question that you are not sure about you could lose all your points for that round. This introduces an element of excitement and risk especially towards the end.
  5. It’s great for older teens. Some of the subject matter is quite tricky and this is not for younger children. Older children and adults will love it.

The best bit of ‘Which one?’

I have no hesitation in choosing the best aspect of this game in our board games for teens review. It is the option to work as a team against ‘the game’. This worked like a dream for us. Our 12-year-old daughter was a little too young to play the individual version of the game but when we formed a team we were able to cover all bases. Amongst us we had experts at sports, science, films, songs and general knowledge. Our youngest was able to answer questions that the rest of us had no idea about! We also got to discuss as a team if we wanted to ‘risk’ answering questions that we were not sure about.

Working as a team rather than against each other immediately cuts down the potential for arguments and any parents with three competitive teens/tweens in the family will know how valuable that is! It also makes the game amazingly flexible. You could play it on your own versus the ‘game’ if you wanted to or form large groups of people into teams.

This game gets a 10/10 from us and I know it will become a firm family favourite. If you would like to learn more about Ginger Fox Games you can do so here.

      I think an 18 year old would love it. My daughter is a student and is going to borrow it for her shared house. Thanks for commenting 🙂

    Oooh we all love a board game over here, and its totally like you say suiting the needs of teens and tweens can be difficult! Might have to consider this one an option as we are always on the hunt for a new game. Great review. #TweensTeensBeyond

    We love board games in our house, though I have a hard time getting excited about yet another round of Monopoly, favoured by the others in my home. Glad to know about some alternatives!! Thank you!

    I’m a bit ashamed to say that we haven’t played board games together for years! Mine are 23, 21 and 17 and this Christmas we are on our own (grandparents are coming boxing day) so this could be the perfect time to rectify it. It would be so lovely to get us all ‘on board’ and this sounds ideal for us and will hopefully get the teen off her phone for a bit! Lisa xx #TweensTeensBeyond

    I really enjoy playing board games with my kids. As long as it’s the right one and the right time (i.e., no one’s cranky). This one sounds like a winner!

    This is a well-timed post as we seem to be undergoing a board game revival here. OK even the youngest is no longer a teen but this could still be worth investigating #tweensteensbeyond

    Ha ha Sharon. I was asked to review this and said no as I thought it might be too simplistic for teens! How wrong I was clearly! We love a good board game in this house although we do all get very competitive. This sounds fun and I like the team building element. #TweensTeensBeyond

    Always happy to hear about a new board game suitable for the whole family Sharon! Had never heard of this and it’s now on my mental purchasing list for the next year or so. We do love a new game. Nicky #tweensteensbeyond

    This is just the post I needed to read. I love a new board game for Christmas Day after lunch. We did Pointless last year but took us until New Year to work out the complicated rules!!This looks much more up our street! #TweensTeensBeyond
