Articulate For Kids Review & Give-Away

We’ve recently been sent Articulate for Kids from the lovely team a Drumond Park, so Boo and I have been having fun with it…

articulate for kidsArticulate for Kids – The Fast Talking Description game!

Articulate – the spectacularly successful description game can now be played by kids as young as 6 and as old as 12. This game can also be played with the adult version.

Articulate for Kids is the same fast moving, lively, gripping fun as the adult version. Played in teams, 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.

Compiled by an educational specialist there are 336 cards with over 2,000 entries in the same six categories as the original Articulate! Complete with it’s own board it can be played alone or along with Articulate! So there’s no escape from all those fast talking kids.

For 4 – 20 Players
Ages 6 – 12
£19.99

If you’ve played the adult version of this game (which I reviewed here), then you’ll find that this one works in the same way, it’s just that the words you have got to ‘articulate’ are more child-friendly.

For those of you who are new to Articulate, it’s fab! It is one of my favourite games, and it’s great that we now have this version so that Boo can more easily get involved, too. The object of the game is to describe the word on your card to your team mate, without saying it of course. There are six categories, World, Object, Person, Action, Nature and Random, and for every one you get right, you get to move a place around the board. It’s fast as it’s against the clock, and it doesn’t take that long to play, so a good one for grabbing and playing to fill a little time, without feeling you’ll be there all night!

It is actually a game for two or more teams, which is a lot of fun, but we’ve been regularly playing with it, just the two of us. Boo is yet to play tactically , so she doesn’t attempt to sabotage my turn in any way! It’s a more grown up game than many of the other games she has, which I think adds to the appeal and she enjoys setting it up and moving us around the board.

articulate for kids with Boo

At 5 years old, Boo is a little younger than the recommended age for this, but I cannot begin to tell you how much I enjoy playing this game with her. Over half term, every day when Little Man napped, Boo would ask to play this with me. I see how well she can read with this, and how much she understands and has learned about the world around her. I find it fascinating how she chooses to describe the words to me, stretching her vocabulary and giving me a little insight into the workings of her mind. She often surprises me by how she knows, too, which is rather lovely.

We love this one, and I cannot see us tiring of playing it.
