This Irish owned, quick-thinking and fast-talking description game looks great craic. With 30 seconds on the clock, players can test their knowledge using Irish-themed and international words. It comes in a junior version too— and apparently board games are back in fashion, so there.
It is available to buy in over 100 stores nationwide including Toymaster, World of Wonder, Art & Hobby, Easons and Smyths stores retailing at €29.99. www.30seconds.ie
