Colt Super Express by Ludonaute is a card game for 3 – 7 players set in the gun-slinging Wild West. You play as one of a selection of bandits that hold up a train, but the train driver has started fighting back by unhooking carriages. That’s right – those carriages are your count-down.

StreetFighter II Champion Edition

This is a great nostalgic item to be released. Firstly it has Street Fighter 2 champion edition, as well as Street Fighter 2 Turbo, so it is two games in one. It also included a bonus mini fight stick for 2 player competition. There are two USB ports on the back to add the extra controller into the game. It also offers a nice touch with 2 coin slots with replica’s coins that also come with. The game play is brilliant with the buttons/joystick being very clear and self-explanatory.

Pokémon Pikachu Wireless Charger

Wireless chargers are suddenly all over the place, and if your devices are compatible, they’re a seriously convenient way to charge them. Whilst we’re spoilt for designs, there aren’t many as cute as this Pikachu! Laying on her front, your smartphone charges on Pikachu’s back by resting it on her tail. This is a fun Pokémon tie-in, putting Pikachu’s electrical powers to good use by keeping your phone battery topped up! Her cheeks even illuminate to let you know when your phone is charged, which is a nice little attention to detail.

Coding Critters™ Rumble & Bumble

We’ve reviewed a few coding toys in Gadget Head, and the concept behind all of them is fantastic – get kids engaging with coding ideas now, to prepare them for what is bound to be a highly digital future. We had simple coding toys when I was a kid, but they were heavy, clunky, and didn’t do an awful lot. Today’s versions are fantastic, and Coding Critters are bringing something to the table that I haven’t seen before – props, story books, and a whole bunch of new reasons to get coding!

The Monopoly Voice Banking game

We’ve all seen dozens of Monopoly revamps over the years. Themed for every major fandom and license, there’s a novelty Monopoly for everyone, but it’s far less common for the actual gameplay of this household classic to get switched up. First patented in 1904, Monopoly was originally called ‘The Landlord's Game’ and was created to show the harms of the rent laws at the time. In 1933, it settled into the version we recognise today, and it’s continued to set families against each other ever since.
