Do you have family or friends coming around for tea or a gathering? If so, try getting out a board game to involve everyone and have fun. We tend to do this instead of turning on the PlayStation or TV as it’s more interactive and sociable.
Last week, a few friends came around with their children and we played the LOGO Board Game and LOGO What Am I?
LOGO Board Game
This super-popular board game features recognition and knowledge questions based on hundreds of the UK’s best loved and most iconic brands – from the AA, Bird’s Eye and BMW to Walkers crisps and Wrigley’s gum. It is great for families who enjoy playing games together. This is suitable for aged 12 onwards and for 2 – 6 players.
Inside the box, there is a well-made circle playing board, a box of 400 question cards, 6 counters and instructions. This is very straightforward game if you know your brands well. I did struggle a bit as I never paid too much attention on the colours of logos or brands. With the help of my team mate (Mr C), we didn’t do too badly. Now I find myself paying attention to the logo designs for any products!
The 400 question cards are split in three categories – 200 Pictorial, 100 Themed and 100 ‘Pot Luck’. Each Picture card features full- or part- logo images to identify, coupled with questions relating to the brand. For instance, the questions on the Themed cards relate to the headings, such as ‘Birds’ (eg Kiwi Shoe Polish, Penguin, Swan Vestas) and ‘Relatives’ (e.g. Aunt Bessie’s, Daddies, Uncle Ben’s). Everyone’s making for the Winning Zone – and once there, the first person to answer his or her question correctly wins!
This is definitely a fabulous game! We love it and everyone got so excited while trying to guessing the answers!
