Key to the Kingdom is probably the best board game in the world!
November 14, 2015

I still have my old battered Key to the Kingdom and we still play it when friends come round. It' s still the coolest board game ever invented, nothing comes close to it even today. It's fun, but at the same time totally evil.... the bone pit is a nasty piece of work... And why do I always pick up the Voodoo Spectre from the monster cards. It's the perfect family game that's different every time you play it... l never tier of it!!!! Been looking for a new one for years now and can't believe someone hasn't re~released it. Wish I'd invented it, I'd be pushing for a new version from any manufacturer. How about a tablet version... Wicked!

This is possibly the best adventure game ever in the history of the world. It is such a cool game to play and is totally different every time you play it. I'd love to be able to buy a new one as the one I have is so old and so often played that it is falling to pieces and I can't afford the prices they ask for a good second hand one these days. Why isn't it still sold new?? Have fun, but stay out of that Bone Pit... It's the pits!

K to the K... Possibly the most entertaining game ever devised!
July 04, 2011

I had Key to the Kingdom as a kid and it totally blew me away. Alas I could never win as whenever I did get the Key and secretly tried to head for the exit, someone would pounce on me and rob me of it. The way that board folded out to give you a massive playing area was magical! I'm not one of these nerdy 'gamers' who have to have a dungeon master and can only play if there's a complicated rules system that only a mathmatical giant can get to grips with. It was a real fun game and I think they should release it again for another generation! A brill game.... PLAY IT!
