Tummy Ache has been a family favourite for over 35 years! Players must try to put together an edible meal in their place setting, but beware of making yucky combinations that will cause a tummy ache! Players pick up food and drink cards from the central pile and place them on the different sections of their plate. If they pick up one of the yucky ‘tummy ache’ cards, they must shout out ‘Tummy ache!’ and place it on their board to be replaced later in the game
The winner is the first player to fill their playing board with five food cards to make an edible meal.
Children find this game quick and easy to play and understand, and will be screeching with laughter at the horrible bugs, slugs and worms they can see amongst their everyday foods! It is also a great way to teach children about turn taking and encouraging communication by asking them to talk about their favourite food. Tummy Ache is perfect to play in school with friends, or at home with family.
