Quick Verdict

The Aggravation board game is a textbook classic. This game is fun for anyone of any age. This game is truly one of the only games that I can say you will not tire of, because the game is constantly changing. It is great for parties as well as just a family fun night.

The game and gameplay

Played on a board shaped like a star, you can teach young ones counting and colors, as well as cause and effect. For older kids or adults, this game can be a great stress reliever. It can become one of your “Family Fun Night” favorites in no time.

Each player moves their marbles strategically to avoid being sent back to base (the first “Aggravation”) or to send others back.

You have the choice of taking “short cuts”. By moving into the center of the board if the player rolls a number that puts them exactly on the center, the second “Aggravation”. BEWARE… you have more points to worrying about someone coming and setting your marble back to home, the third “Aggravation”.Related pages on Boardgame Beast

This sounds simple enough, but you must roll exactly the right amount to correctly move your marbles into place.

This is the the last “Aggravation”!

Pros and cons

The game has very easy to follow rules. So rules cannot be misconstrued. However, people have been known to add “twists” to the game for adults to make it more challenging. This game is a game of chance and skill in equal parts, which makes for a great good-hearted fun.

The only thing I would take in to account is that game play can become an extended affair. I would definitely take this into consideration when playing with young ones. Also, hence the name, it can be aggravating and should be enjoyed good heartedly.

The verdict

This game is a awesome game for anyone of any age. It can be played at just about any occasion. The Aggravation board game is a classic game of wit, luck and laughter. It is definitely highly recommended as a addition to anyone’s collection. This game can be altered to add more twists and turns to provide even more challenge. This keeps the game fresh and new, which means that you will never get tired of it!
