Games to take on... a camping or caravan holiday
Tiny toilets, sand on the sofa, and an overriding smell of burnt BBQ food - is there anything better than a British camping or caravan holiday?
Back in the day, caravans (or at least the one I visited in The Gower) used to provide you with a copy of Pass the Pigs. Due to widespread government cuts, there's not been a copy of Pass the Pigs in a caravan since the early 2000s, so it's always wise to bring along your own entertainment in the form of cardboard and dice.

Sushi Go, £12
In Sushi Go!, you are eating at a sushi restaurant and trying to grab the best combination of sushi dishes as they whiz by. Score points for collecting the most sushi rolls or making a full set of sashimi. Dip your favourite nigiri in wasabi to triple its value! But be careful which sushi you allow your friends to take; it might be just what they need to beat you!
Exploding Kittens, £22
In the hugely popular Exploding Kittens, gameplay is super simple; players must draw cards until someone draws a exploding kitten, that person loses, of course! The longer the game last the more tense it becomes as the fewer cards in the deck means a much greater chance of pulling an exploding kitten and meeting a fiery, feline-y end!
In Codenames, two teams compete against each other to see who can make contact with all of their spy operatives first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the board. Their teammates try to guess words of the right operatives while avoiding those that belong to the opposing spymaster...
