LOGO and LOGO What Am I? from Drumond Park Review

LOGO Drumond Park Box What Am I?

We've previously reviewed LOGO Billionaire and LOGO Best Of TV & Movies, but I'd only played LOGO itself a few times at friends' houses before and hadn't tried LOGO What Am I? We were sent both games to review, and we've had a real laugh with them.

LOGO (rrp £32.99) is the original in a series of games from Drumond Park. Designed for 2-6 players aged 12+ it's a really easy game to grasp, and the rules are very simple.

LOGO Family Board Games adults and teenagers

The aim of LOGO is to travel around the board answering trivia questions about brands and companies that we're all very familiar with.

Individual question cards might be themed, or pot luck, or will all be based on a photo or series of photos. 

Question cards LOGO

On the back of each question card are  4 questions with answers. Players take it in turns to be question master, asking the player to their left the questions until they get one wrong, when they instead ask the next player. Every time a question is answered correctly the player moves their counter to the next available section of board with a matching colour, until they reach the centre, when they must answer 2 questions correctly consecutively to win.

We play this with our teenagers and it's a real laugh, as well as teaching us some bizarre and probably useless trivia! It's ideal for family evenings in and we found although the adults win most of the time, it's close - in another year or so I'll have no chance. The questions are mainly so obvious once you see or hear the answer, they don't require academic knowledge, just general knowledge and you have to have paid attention to the world around you!

LOGO What Am I? Drumond Park

LOGO What Am I? (rrp £24.99) is a junior version of LOGO that is suitable for 3-6 players and age 8+. We played it with everyone, with the younger boys working as team players with us. Our 5 year old has trouble with the reading, but grasped the gameplay almost instantly despite being too young.


Again played by moving around the board, LOGO What Am I? isn't about trivia and doesn't have questions. Instead play is by each player in turn throwing a die and then completing a challenge on the card. They have to get the other players to guess what they are describing or drawing.

Drumond Park LOGO Board Game Review What Am I?

Depending on where you land on the board you take a card and may have to describe the brand or product without using the name, draw a picture for the other players to guess, or simply answer questions with 'yes, no or maybe' until the brand or product is guessed correctly.


LOGO What Am I? is a timed game, everyone gets 1 minute to try and get the other players to guess correctly. If they do then both the person who guessed and the person holding the card move forward. There are 2 winners. When the question answered is held by the player in the centre Winning Zone, both players involved win.

This is a great game for the bringing the family together, especially when you want something for teenagers and pre-teens to play on an even level with the adults. Our 5 year old is obviously below the recommended age, and didn't really grasp the 'yes/no' aspect and always asked the same questions, but as part of a team with his Dad they won more than anyone else. Everyone knows what ketchup is - however old.


We really liked both games and they'll be back out on Saturday for games night. Neither are frustrating or leave room for arguments to develop. They are great games to play on your own, or in pairs if necessary, and are suitable to play with the older generations together. It's real family fun.

Drumond Park have recently released a FREE LOGO app.  for iPhone and iPad, which is available to download here from the Apple store. The only officially endorsed LOGO app., it has full approval and permissions from the brands and features loads of big name favourites such as Birds Eye, Wagon Wheels, Tesco and Campbell's.


Drumond Park kindly offered copies of both LOGO and LOGO What Am I? for me to giveaway to one of my readers. One lucky winner won both prizes worth nearly £60. The giveaway closed at midnight on 30th April 2014.
