We have a new game here and we’ve been having fun reviewing it for you. We’ve been playing Catch Phrase from Drumond Park, and I also have a game up for grabs, so do read on…
Welcome to the hilarious Catch Phrase board game. With its updated game-play and loads of brand new brain teasers you can enjoy the excitement of the TV game show hosted by Stephen Mulhern.
Each player hosts a round of; Individual, Rapid-Fire and Super Catch Phrase puzzles. There are Bonus Catchphrases to solve and Mr. Chips to hold up the Catch Phrase cards.
To add to the fun, in this version, you all play right to the end of the game and it’s the player with the most money who wins after everyone has taken a turn at being the host.
Catch Phrase Game
The game has several components that need assembling in the box, but rest assured they are easy to do, not in the least bit fiddly and only take a few minutes. I even did ours with the kids bobbing about desperate to play, so that’s how straightforward it is!
After that initial set up, it will always be ready to play for future games as it pops back into the box easily.
If you’ve seen the TV show then you’ll find this simple to explain and play. There are three rounds, and the winner is the person with the most money at the end of the game. My children always enjoy games where money is available to win! There are regular catch phrases that Mr Chips holds up for you, with answers on the reverse, bonus catch phrases in the big square and super catch phrases.
There are 96 double sided regular Catch Phrase cards, 48 single sided super Catch Phrase cards and 15 double sided bonus Catch Phrase cards, so plenty to keep you playing without repeating the same cards. There’s also lots of money!
We all enjoy playing this one. It’s recommended for ages 8 and over, and I’d say that’s spot on. Whilst my five year old grasps what he needs to do, he’s not that familiar with the catch phrases themselves so struggles to come up with the right answers. Though as with the show, some of them are just ‘say what you see’ and he manages it! If you like the programme, then you’re sure to enjoy this game. I can see it being a fun game to play with family after Christmas lunch, with lots of shouting out and laughter.
I now have a Catch Phrase game worth £22.99 (rrp) up for grabs for one lucky winner. To be in with a chance of winning it, enter using the rafflecopter below. The competition is open to UK entrants only and closes at 12am 13th November 2017. Good luck!
