Since I work in the Construction industry, I thought it would be best to use my expertise in this game review. 😉

We literally had a blast playing this game! We love the idea of promoting construction in this fun and interactive game. There are so many skills that can be learned with this game such as building STEM skills which include analytical thinking and shape recognition. Great skills for your child and as a family to grasp together.

We have been playing this game almost every night as Nikki loves it and keeps reminding me that it should be easy for me since I work in Construction. I still haven’t told her that I don’t actually do the heavy labor work but I will let her believe that I do. On a side note, there is no heavy lifting or hard labor involved in this game. 😉

Build or Boom is great for two players, ages four and up. On this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give it 10 booms out of 5! This is such a unique game and it is a much needed game for Family Game Night.

If you would like to add this fun game to your family game night, click here. You will have a booming blast!

Until next time…Happy Parenting!
