|Randy Cox||9||3||Some || Recently played with our 2.5 and just-days-before-turning-4-year-old. The game is essentially three decks of clip-art/line-drawing cards (actions, objects, and animals). The idea is that the kid can look at the image (which also has text) and tell what they are expected to mimic, Charades style.
Sometimes it works (cat, washing hands) and sometimes it doesn't (applying makeup, dribbling a basketball). But the kids love it. They don't really care if they're miming the correct item or not. They've got an idea in their mind and they'll let you know when you give the answer they're looking for.
The game itself is overproduced. The only thing you need are the three small decks of 'cards' (tiny tiles, that is). It would be nice if there were more cards and no board, but getting images on the cards where no reading is required is quite a trick.
Anyway, the kids have asked for it each of the past three nights. They each do one red, one blue, and one green card and that's it. Great for little kids. Charades itself is good for slightly older kids, I think.
|davebo||8||4||Yes ||If you're looking for a charades game for kids this is the one. There are a lot of cards included, and since each includes a picture non-readers can participate.
I've had a lot of fun playing this with the kids when they were little. Some big laughs, like when none of my kids could recognize a picture of someone ironing (my wife won't iron).
