This game package, Ziggy Splash at the setShop, contains two games, Ziggy Splash® and setShop® described below:
Ziggy Splash® is an introductory game to the Ziggy Splash at the setShop game package. It introduces home appliances commonly used in a household (i.e. cooker, refrigerator, hot water tank, heater, washing machine, lights, computer and television) and forms the foundation of the other games. The players are exposed to different energy efficiency categories of home appliances, identifiable through a splash of colours and facial characters that fit a scale of energy use dubbed the Cool, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
A pack of 32 cards, 2 game boards and the manual with the game rules (which are provided), are required to play the game. Once the rules have been mastered, players might want to play the game to a set time as suggested in the manual ... a kitchen timer may be needed although it is not provided in the package.
Children aged between 6-9 years, will find it exciting playing this game as the colours and graphics make it intuitive to play.

The setShop® game reinforces the players' understanding of energy efficiencies of the common household appliances introduced in Ziggy Splash®
This is done through forming runs (a selection of 3 or 4 cards with the same appliance but different energy efficiencies) or sets (a selection of 3 or 4 cards of different appliances, but similar energy category).
Only the 32 cards, the two game boards (from Ziggy Splash®), the manual with the game rules are required. This game is also suitable for ages 6 years and older.
