The Easter holidays are upon us and there’s nothing worse than being stuck indoors, that goes for both children and adults! There are only so many board games you can play and cakes you can bake until the inevitable boredom sets in. If you’re looking for a back-up plan this Easter in case the glorious British weather lets us down then I might have just the thing.
Star Stable is a hugely popular online horse game which has been running since 2012, it is currently ranked number one horse game in the Virtual Horse Games ranking. The game has over 4 million users from all over the world who enjoy exploring the beautiful island of Jorvik on horseback.
The journey begins with players choosing a horse and explore the island on horseback completing quests along the way. During the game players can start and join a riding club, compete in races, explore the island and of course have fun with friends.
Star Stable also has educational values as well as a lot of fun! Children learn social skills through speaking to friends on the moderated chat room, problem solving is also key in the game with the exciting quests to solve in an ever-changing game, children will develop a sense of responsibility as they have to care for their horse and manage their virtual money. Children are also encouraged to read and engage with fiction, the Star Stable story is now over 248,000 words long and is growing every week.
The great thing about Star Stable is that it is free to play up to level 4 which is enough time to get a taste for the game and for children to decide if it is something they would like to continue playing. If they want to progress above level 4 then you can purchase one of the subscription packs which are really reasonably priced. You can purchase a 1 month subscription for £4.95, 3 months for £11.95, 6 months for £18.90 or a lifetime membership which costs £49.
