Articulate and Articulate For Kids review and giveaway

Drumond Park make fantastic board games and last weekend we got to play with two of our favourites. Articulate has been around for a long while, and it's junior version, Articulate For Kids, has just undergone a revamp which sees it suitable for children aged 6+.

Articulate and Articulate For Kids review and giveaway

Our 6 year old is fairly articulate, but lacks nerve, so this is an excellent game for helping him gain confidence with description and memory. It increases a child's vocabulary and social skills. 


Articulate and Articulate For Kids review box contents

Play is very simple and in teams of 2 or more players - you will need at least 4 people to play. Place your counter on the 'start' space, then take the role of describer or guesser.

The idea is to describe as many card entries as possible to your team mates in 30 seconds without giving "begins with" or "sounds like" clues.
 
Articulate and Articulate For Kids review cards

We really enjoyed playing. Our 6 year old loved it. He felt very special reading his word from the card and describing it to his team, and very clever when he guessed a word right that his team mate had described to him.

Articulate board game review

Articulate is the classic original game. Play is very similar to Articulate For Kids, but with the addition of a spinner that can lead you to sabotage the other team(s) or massively advance your own team, and harder words printed on the cards.

Articulate board game review box contents

Questions in both games are in 6 categories - Object, Nature, Action, World, Person or Random, and there are thousands of different words in each game.  The cards from both games can actually be used together so that younger players can join in with older on a more equal footing.

We really enjoyed playing, although moving from Articulate For Kids to original Articulate made it seem really hard! It was a good laugh and really fast-paced at times. One of the funniest bits was when the describer had no clue what they were meant to be describing. You're only allowed 1 pass each round, so use it wisely! I think playing expanded everyone's vocabulary - and general knowledge too.

Articulate is recommended for age 12+ and has an rrp of £32.99 - and can be played with 4-20 players or more. Articulate For Kids is recommended for age 6-12 and has an rrp of £19.99, again it's suitable for 4-20 players - or more.
