We have another board game for you all. As Olivia is getting older I am always on the lookout for new and different games to play with her. I’ve mentioned many times before we are big board games fans and when I was introduced to the Game of THINGS……. at the recent Blog On Xmas event in September, the game sounded right up our street.
Game of THINGS Review
The aim of the game is to pick a card and read the topic. Write your response and then eliminate all the other players by guessing who wrote the responses. With over 300 cards, you will have to play the game a lot to get through them all. You also get pencils, a response pad and a scoresheet.
For ages 14+ to be played with a minimum of 4 players.
This definitely sounded like our kind of game and we weren’t disappointed. The rules state that the point of this game is about the fun and laughter. Rules schmooles, but you do have them if you are the kind of person who has to follow the rules then they are pretty easy to follow and keep score. But with our lot things like this just go out the window. You need to have one reader who reads the answers and draws the cards, like being the banker in Monopoly, it is always me!
So after rounding up our usual crew, we got down to some serious game playing. Some cheeky answers, some boring ones but it seems we all know each other (and each other’s handwriting) a little too well. So they weren’t a surprise who wrote them just that they did. Olivia loved it as did the grown-ups too. The best thing is, as there are so many cards with questions, you can filter out the more grown-up questions to make it child-friendly and suitable for the whole family. I gave up trying to reign them in, I just let them fight it out amongst themselves, so as to who won, I have no idea!
A big hit with our game loving family. I thought it would be from the moment I saw it. If your family is big on games, competition, all with a side helping of cheekiness, this could be the game for you this Christmas. I mean it’s not Christmas if there isn’t a big bust up over a family, is it? Or maybe that’s just us!
A big thumbs up for its adaptability to include the whole family but I think with a dash of alcohol and no children this game could quickly become an adult favourite for livening things up or causing massive rifts! All in the name of fun of course!
