Articulate & Articulate for Kids Giveaway

Oh, this one’s good! I have a copy of Drumond Park‘s Articulate and Articulate for Kids to give away to one lucky reader!

If you’ve not played Articulate before, then you’re in for a real treat. I love board games and play lots of them, and I can honestly say that this is one of my very favourites.

Articulate: How quickly can you describe a word without actually saying it? Speed is of the essence in this fast-thinking, fast-talking game – the more words your team can guess from your descriptions in 30 seconds, the quicker you’ll cross the finishing line. And that’s without saying ‘rhymes with’ or ‘sounds like’.

Articulate uses 6 categories of words, so you could end up describing anything from a kettle to a country depending on which category you’ve landed on from Object, Nature, Action, World, Person or Random.

We played it again last weekend, at my mum’s house (where much of the family game-play takes place!) with my brother and his wife. As Little Man was having his nap, Boo wanted in on the game. She had the important role of moving the pieces and she did get a couple right, too, much to her delight! She was on her auntie’s team each time, and we all had a lot of fun.

I like words and language, and fast-thinking, so this was always going to be a hit with me, I guess! There’s a fair old dose of general knowledge thrown in there, too, as you do need to know about the word you’re describing to be able to do so! That’s all part of the fun, though, and if you or your team don’t know much about ‘Ice Station Zebra’, then how else can you describe it until they get it?! It’s all up against the timer, too, with the additional fun of the spinner thrown in, so you can be moving forwards or moving opponents back with that little extra. It’s fast, guaranteed to have you laughing and a great one for any and all to join in. I’d definitely recommend it.

And now, as well as the brilliant original Articulate, there’s Articulate for Kids!

Articulate for Kids (ages 6-12) can be played by a group of children by themselves (or with grown-ups), or alongside Articulate! for hours of multi-generational family fun. Many educationalists also choose to incorporate the game into entertaining learning strategies in the classroom to promote speaking skills – adapting game play according to small or larger numbers of children in play.Β 

With words such as The Gruffalo, Giraffe, Raindrop,Β Easter Bunny and Sleeping, it should test the kids, but they should be able to ‘articulate’ them. With Boo coming up to 5, she’s nearly ready for this one, and I suspect she’d give it a good go anyway. One for the Christmas list, I think!

And now, as promised, I do have a copy of each game available to give away to one lucky reader. Simply use the rafflecopter below to enter, open to UK entrants only, and it ends 30th September 2014.
