Review: Jaques of London – Wooden Noughts & Crosses (gifted)

We were kindly gifted the Jaques of London wooden toys for review, however as with all our reviews, they are all our own honest opinions.

Now there is probably no game that can compare in Lily’s mind than Noughts & Crosses, so when she received her very own wooden Noughts & Crosses game from Jaques of London, she could not have been more excited!

We recently tried out other of the beautiful wooden toys from Jaques of London , including Snakes & Ladders and 4-in-a-Row, both of which are now played daily after school.

Lily often plays Noughts & Crosses on bits of paper, so to have her own wooden game to be used again and again, it really was a fantastic surprise for her!

The packaging

As with all the Jaques of London Toys for Kids, they come packaged ready to open and play, with no excess packaging.

The Deluxe 3D Noughts & Crosses came has a cardboard sleeve and then a high-quality cardboard box which you can store the game in between uses.

The packaging is not only stunning to be ready-wrapped for a Christmas gift or present, but also is the box for the toy to be stored, so you can simply open the box and get playing – no batteries, plastic or setting up required, plus eco friendly too!

If you’re looking for a traditional gift for under the tree at Christmas or something special for a birthday present, you really need to check out the Jacques of London toys and games!

Instantly, you can see and feel that the whole set is just beautiful, with the highest quality – you know this will last for many years.

As well as a game to play, it would also make a stunning traditional coffee table game too!

The Wooden Noughts & Crosses game can be used for more than just normal 2D games – but 3D games too, by adding in the extra dimension through the three layers of wooden pieces.

You can win the game horizontally, vertically, or diagonally too – what a way to mix up such a fantastic game.

Lily has so much fun with this game and never wants it to end – just as you think you’ve won, you realise the other player has won in a different way, making it a fantastic challenge and so many laughs too!

She has already asked to take this game to her grandparents’ house at Christmas so she can play it with them together over the festive season – along with her Snakes & Ladders game too!

We really do know this timeless game will be played for years to come, through generations, thanks to its super high quality and beautiful finish – you’ll definitely see it again on many of our adventures for some screen-free fun.
