Whilst I was gifted The Game of Things for the purpose of reviewing on my blog . All thoughts are my own and haven’t been influenced in any way by Talking Toys.
If you don’t know that in between the books, beauty and food . I love games, I used to be an avid gamer and was obsessed with boards games and console games . However as I got older, reading captured my imagination and thoughts. Unfortunately as a result gaming has been put to the side in recent years .
Until very recently when I started to dip my toes again in to the crazy world of gaming . I have been slowly devoting time to revisit my old favourites and discovering the new games out there .
However I noticed one thing, the board games I loved as a teenager doesn’t cut it as it used to . I need to be challenged and I need some light heart fun when I play a board game. Fortunately The Game of THINGS is here to meet those needs and more, providing hours of fun for everyone involved .
Why you may ask.
This is the perfect party game as you only want silly answers and who will know if it is the truth if you all are drunk or busy laughing your head off. As that all part of the game’s charm really
Laughter is the key to this game as their motto is humour in a box. The perfect way to sum up this game as you are going to be using you brain to be creative and funny yet be somewhat honest. The choices are endless given the topic
The aim of the game is simple . It is summed up perfectly like this “ Pick a Topic … Write a Response… Guess who said what “
It is really a fool proof idea and it is hard not to get enthusiastic about this game. There is 300 cards as well so honestly if you play with the current rules. It could go forever in theory depending on how fast you play.
It is really well thought out and they have solution for even the basic problems. Hand writing is no issue in the game , there is a way around everything. Also the more the merrier in this game, though it suggested eight is the max with the number of pencils available. Really I see it as the sky is the limit as it would be harder to guess who wrote what . That been said you need at least four players to begin with. Even so they have a solution even for a smaller game if you are worried it isn’t going to be too interesting.
Side note about being interesting. Whilst the current rules are fun and pretty straight forward that it hard not to quickly get into the game. These aren’t the original rules . If you really want to go hardcore, Games of THINGS have the orginal rules on their website. I haven’t checked them out but I will do in the near future when I get a chance to play this again
Available from all leading toy stores for and ages 14 up. This is the perfect game for the next big drinks and games night or a party. As the more people, the more fun!
