Product Description


History Heroes’ Explorers quiz card game contains individual cards of History Heroes’ forty greatest Explorers. Each card is fantastically illustrated to represent the individual Explorer Hero and shows the explorer’s dates, their flag of birthplace and seven gripping facts about them, including a joker fact about each Explorer to surprise and/or entertain.

History Heroes’ Explorers stretch back in time to Pytheas in the first century BCE and cover land, marine, submarine and lunar exploration from then until the present day. Neil Armstrong ‘rubs shoulders’ with Roald Amundsen and Ibn Battuta; Ranulph Fiennes with Leif Erikson and Yuri Gagarin; Amelia Earhart with Sir Francis Drake and Sylvia Earle;  James Cameron with Pedro Cabral and Christopher Columbus to name a few.

There are many different ways of playing History Heroes’ Explorers and you can make up your own rules as long as everyone playing agrees to them! The aim is simple: you win the game by winning the cards and you win the cards by guessing/knowing the facts.  You can use the images as clues and you can use the different levels of facts to make it as easy or as hard as you want to play the game. You can also play the game at different levels within the game so that all ages and stages can play together. The green facts are the easiest working down to the red facts, the most difficult. You can, of course, use the joker fact at the bottom, too, to overrule them all!

    I had to write a second review for the Explorers because I think this card game is outstanding. Having a great interest in this subject I found the cards incredibly informative. I have given the Explorer game as a present but I have kept my original pack by my desk so I can look up all kinds of facts. A truly great gift that does not date. Well done History Heroes!

    The packaging was attractive, excellent quality. . The game is easy to understand, although I think you would need a child who is already interested in the subjects in order to engage their interest in the game. My child was fully engaged. He was happy playing it many times and asked to take it on holiday for the car journey. This game works alongside the key stage two curriculum. My son was familiar with some of the characters from his school work and he enjoyed discovering some new characters from history. This game is engaging, fun; a brain stimulating game.

    I was very impressed with this game when I first saw it. The packaging was very good and the game concept was very easy to understand and follow. This game kept us all going for a long time. It helps with needing to pay attention to what is said to remember for the next time the card comes out again! It is simple and easy to play without them losing interest. I think it is great and kept the kids amused for a long time. I really did like this game – it was something different for us all to enjoy; it was a good laugh.
