LOGO What Am I? (rrp £24.99) is a fantastic multi-activity picture board game, which is heaps of fun for everyone! This junior version of the hugely popular LOGO game combines the famous ‘big brands’ picture cards - with all-new and exciting challenges.Players are asked to ‘guess’, ‘draw’ or ‘describe it’, and there are hundreds of cards featuring well-known brands– from the Ipod and Crocs to Heinz Baked Beans and Kellogg’s Coco Pops.
For the Draw It! section, you draw the item on your card, while the other players guess what you are drawing. For Describe It!, the timer gives you sixty seconds to describe three products or brands which your opponents have to identify. And for Guess It!, your opponents have to guess the picture or logo you have on your card – but in answer to their questions, the only answers you can give are “Yes, No or Maybe”.
This brilliantly conceived multi-activity ‘big brands’ game for children provides heaps of fun for the whole family, while honing those
crucial communication skills.
LOGO What Am I? is all about fun, fun, fun! The first children’s title within the uber-popular Number One Best Selling LOGO series of picture board games, it combines the highly entertaining branded picture cards of the original LOGO game (rrp £32.99, age 12+) with new and exciting family-friendly challenges. What makes it different fromLOGO itself is that now there are three activities built into the game… the participants get to use theirguessing, drawing and describing skills in a fast and furious race to the finish!
Intrigued? You will be...
This great-value, high quality game comes complete with a colourful playing board and playing pieces, 60-second timer and hundreds of question cards featuring really well known companies and brands. So stand by for riotous rounds of frantic drawing, describing and guessing, where everyone has a really good chance of being a winner! Game play is simple. Each card has three different categories – Draw It, Describe It and Guess It - and the activity to be carried out relates to the icon upon which the player’s piece is resting.
The ‘Draw It’ rounds give the player two options – for example, Hunter Wellington Boots and iPod, or Raleigh Bicycle and Hot Chocolate. The player sketches away at their chosen subject within the 60-second timer limit. Sometimes only a few strokes will do (a quick triangle may be quite enough to depict a Toblerone, for instance). Everyone can pitch in and call out as many guesses as they like, and whoever gets it right jointly wins the round, alongside the sketching player. Both of them then roll the dice individually, and move their piece forward. If no one guesses correctly, play simply passes on to the next player.
In this round, echoing Drumond Park’s highly popular Articulate! and Articulate for Kids games, the cardholder has 60 seconds to describe the three products or brands shown on the card. These are all everyday items like a Baby’s Bottle, Sausages, a Comb, an Apple, Gloves, Coconut, Saucepan, Carrot, Watch and Fish Tank or ‘of the moment’ products or brandssuch as Coca Cola, Speedos, Ugg Boots, Twitter, Uncle Ben’s Rice, Smarties, Sky TV, Specsavers and Starbucks. The players must avoid saying which letter their word begins with, or any part of it – and they mustn’t give any rhyming clues, or perform or gesticulate while doing their describing.
The ‘Guess It’ side of the card shows a picture of a well-known product or brand, and you keep it hidden from the other players, who have sixty seconds to identify it by asking questions. Examples range from Crocs, Anchor Butter, Waffle and Maltesers to Volkswagen and The Battersea Dogs & Cats Home! Again, players can make as many guesses as they like, and the card also includes a ‘Hint’ option which can be used to help the younger players. As previously, a correct guess means a joint winner with the cardholder, and both roll the dice and move their pieces on accordingly.
A race to the finish!The first player to throw the dice to move them onto or past the LOGO What Am I? centre zone wins the game - jointly with the player who guessed with them correctly on that turn.
For children on their own the hugely entertaining LOGO What Am I?draws together many crucial aspects of communication and gamesmanship. It is also perfect for the youngsters to play with their parents and older siblings or at multi-generational gatherings. Absolutely everyone will be able to relate to the famous name products and brands - and join in the fun.
