Freddie is going through wanting to be a Spy phase, and as such a lot of his Christmas list is full of spy gear. When we were asked to review this safe breaker game from Brainstorm we were delighted.

The aim of the game is to crack open the safe and release the coins before the alarm goes off. This is suitable for people aged between 6 and 106. Now I’m 39 and hubby is 49 and we loved it, I can’t testify to a 106-year-old though!!!

You have to use fingerprint scanning and coding to work out the correct code. There are even private messages if you don’t get the combination correct to give you help on your next go. The winner is the player who collects 5 coins. However, if you get the alarm bell coin you have to return all of your coins collected, as the police have been alerted!
Safe Breaker requires 3 AA batteries which are not included so make sure you stock up before buying this great game.
Playing Safe Breaker
To receive your private messages you need to listen through the stethoscope. It will give you a higher or lower number clue, and use the fingerprint scanner! If the vault doesn’t open the player will hear one of three sounds – a high-pitched ‘ping ping’ meaning the code is higher than the number entered, a low ‘boom boom’ meaning the code is lower than the number entered. If you hear the police siren it means you’ve entered the wrong code, and you get no clue to help crack the safe.
We really enjoyed playing Safe Breaker and we have played it a few times already with friends and family. This is definitely a great game especially if your little one wants to be a spy!! We have not come across a similar game so this really is a firm favourite for us.
The RRP for this is £24.99 check how much you can get it for now here on Amazon – Safe Breaker
