Crystal Hall is Gibsons’ brand new family board game. The game was developed by a group of four friends, John, Ben, Luke and Maren, who first launched the game on Kickstarter in 2016 and received over £5000 thanks to 120 backers. John then went on to pitch the game to Gibsons at Toy Fair 2017, who instantly fell in love with it and made the decision to add it to their growing games offering.
Crystal Hall encourages players to lead their wizard-shaped counters around the hall in a quest to uncover the four magical crystals that are hidden among the 36 face-down tiles. The first player to visit each of these tiles and extract the crystals is the winner. However, there’s a twist, as there are more than just crystals under the tiles…cauldrons, potions, curses, even enchanted swamps await each player. And the other twist is that as witches and wizards, each player has lots of disruptive spells up their sleeves that can be used to ensure that they are first to get their hands on the mystical crystals of power…do you have what it takes to be the most powerful wizard in the Crystal Hall?
• 2 - 4 players
• Age 10+
• Box dimensions: 26x26x8cm

Shake up your Christmas routine with Gibsons’ silly, after-dinner party games! Pass the Pud and Pass the Bomb are the hilarious action-packed word games that are the perfect entertainment for the whole family.
Pass the Pud is an action-packed team game for four or more players. Everyone’s nerves will be tested to the limits as they answer questions in a race against time to beat the burp. Players take it in turns to draw a card from four mouth-watering categories. They must come up with an answer before quickly passing the pud on to the next player who must also come up with a suitable answer – and so it goes on until the dreaded ‘burp!’ Once all of the cards have been used, the team with the most sixpences are the winners.
Pass the Bomb is back with a brand-new look this Christmas and encourages players to fire up their brain cells as they take part in this explosive word game. Trigger the timer, flip the card and then frantically think of a word containing all the letters before passing the bomb on to the next player. But watch out! The timer is random and could detonate at any moment. Even the most eloquent players will find themselves tongue-tied!
