The best-selling, award-winning game 5 Second Rule has been relaunched with new content and packaging for 2019. There's lots of fun to be had. It should be easy to name three things you find down the back of your sofa; but can you do it under the pressure of five seconds twisting away? Time is not on your side, so just say whatever comes to mind and risk ridiculous answers slipping out! It’s all in good fun with this fast-paced family board game...

5 Second Rule Jr., is aimed at families with young children. I'm assuming the subjects are a little simpler than the original edition, but the instructions also suggest that younger players are allowed to give two, instead of the normal three, answers.

The game starts off with one person having to name three things according to the card that's been drawn for them. For example: Name three animals that have tails. If you can name three before the timer runs out then you can move your counter on the board by one space. Play then moves to the next player who must give three different answers. Play continues with the same question card until one player can't answer before the time runs out.

The winner is the person who manages to get their coloured pawn/counter to the finish line.

There's hours of good clean, crazy family fun to be had here and it's certainly one game that can be enjoyed by the entire family all year round.
