Galt Toys has launched a new board game called Pirate Pursuit, which teaches young children to count in a fun and engaging way. Players race around the Treasure Island in a bid to be the first to fill their loot bag with the correct number of gold coins whilst avoiding losing their loot to pirates.
Suitable from 3 to 7 years, Pirate Pursuit is an ideal developmental game and is the latest addition to the new range of board games launched by Galt Toys this year. The game is designed around addition and subtraction, as players collect or lose their gold coins in the attempt to reach the target number of six coins in the loot bag. Children will love the exciting pirate theme which comes complete with a wind-up galleon, skull and crossbone traps, 24 gold playing coins and loot bags. The board itself is a caricature treasure island map and added adventure is introduced by the pirate galleon – the wind-up ship that mechanically sails round the board in pursuit of the players to try and reclaim some of its treasure.
John McDonnell, Managing Director at Galt Toys, comments: “Board games are a staple of childhood, and treasured in households up and down the country. Pirate Pursuit is the latest from our range of seven new board games that help teach important developmental skills such as counting, memory and colour recognition. As well as having an educational purpose, all board games help aid social skills, such as communication, sharing, turn taking and the ability to focus attention. Games are a great way for families to spend time together and we know everyone will find Pirate Pursuit a lot of fun.”
Pirate Pursuit retails at £15.99 and is Galleons of fun!
