Am I?’ is a fun new game from Drumond Park, RRP £24.99.It is based on their best-selling ‘LOGO’ game, but more varied and aimed
at children as well as adults.
Full of well
known brands such as Coca Cola, Cadbury’s, Pringles and Moon Pig, players move
around the board taking it in turns to pick a card and describe the particular
brand or item on it. The way you do the description is dependent on where you
are on the board. For instance; one type of square on the board means that you
have to draw the item, another will ask you to verbally describe, and another
will request other players to ask questions, with only ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers
allowed.It’s a good mix of ideas and
allows players of all ages and abilities to take part.
game is intended for ages 8+, our 2 year old had great fun joining in.He had his own counter, rolled the dice and
drew random pictures for us to guess what they were.He even managed to work out that I was
drawing a toaster before anyone else did!He was very good at turn taking, happily handing the pen over to his
sister when it was her turn – he seemed to quite enjoy being part of a family
game.The only thing that he did get
really frustrated with (ending up with a tantrum on the floor), was when we
packed it away!
(almost 8) found it easy to draw the items but describing them was a bit more
of a challenge.A correct guess means
that person becomes a joint winner of the round, along with whoever was
describing or drawing the item and both players get to roll the dice
again.So it is encouraging for all the
players to describe or draw to the best of their abilities and it’s nice that
there is more than one way to win.
We chose to
use a whiteboard to make it easier for everyone to see the drawings, but the
game does include a small pad of paper and a pencil, which we’ll keep safe as
it would be an ideal game to take away if we went on holiday.I can see this being a favourite game
throughout the summer holidays!
