Rainbows and rainclouds game

- Mummy, it's my favourite game!
- But what about the Spongebob Bingo? I thought that was your favourite game?!
- No, I love this one best!

We love board games, and with a very enthusiastic player in the family, play on a daily basis. Some games  leave their spot on the shelf only occasionally, some are used so often, I can play them with my eyes closed, well, almost. I don't know who was more thrilled to receive a new game in the post, my son or me (as I was starting to lose enthusiasm whenever he offered to play a game of bingo). Rainbows & Rain Clouds from Manhattan Toy is a variation of a well-known and much-loved Snakes & Ladders game.
It comes in a cute sturdy tin and contains 1 puzzle game board, 4 wooden player pieces, 1 die and an instructions sheet.

The rules are simple, if you get on the rainbow, you move up; if you happen to land on the raincloud, you're moving down.
It could be played by 2-4 players and is aimed at children aged 3+.

The puzzle pieces are strong and durable, and when disassembled, fit in a small sized tin perfectly - ideal for storage.

Eddie says this game is a great fun, and has been asking everyone in the family as well as our friend Jen to play with him. Top marks from all of us!

Disclosure: We received the game for the purposes of testing and reviewing. All opinions are Eddie's and mine.


  1. Love the idea of a puzzle game board that takes up less space - genius !

    1. Very clever, I don't like it when the boxes are humongous
