Designed for children aged around 4+, Can You Guess? is really simple and fluid and the rules were incredibly quick to grasp - even for our 4 year old.
Spin the spinner to see whether you choose from the 'sound', 'action' or 'sound and action' cards.
Then take a card from the top of the pile and turn it over without showing anyone. You then have to perform the character, event or activity shown.
The other players have to try and guess what is shown on your card and the first person to guess correctly wins a star. Stars and used cards are placed on your playing board. The winner is the person wth the most stars once everyone has taken 6 turns.
What makes this game so much fun is the selection of activities on the cards - they're brilliant. Writing-free, it's as easy for a 4 year old as it is an adult, and has some interesting choices that all take seconds to perform and don't require any real brain-power.
Here we have 'chicken'....
And a flock of delicate and sweet Ballerinas....
Because the cards have such simple pictures this game is not only suitable for younger children than the great classic 'What A Performance', but it's also much quicker and easier all round, and we played 2 full games in under half an hour.
The speed and ease means that no-one can get bored waiting, there is always something to try and guess, or you are performing yourself. There is no memory or puzzle-solving, but this is a brilliant game for building confidence and social skills, and observation skills. You need to be ready to watch and give your answer before anyone else does!
Can You Guess? has an RRP of £11.75 and is one of my all-time favourite games. I love the fact we can play a whole game and have a bit of fun without exhausting ourselves in the 20 minutes it takes for tea to cook.
