To celebrate the National Unplugging Day that is being held on 25th June 2017, we were asked to pledge to #GoGadgetFree and spend the day from sun-up to sun-down without any technology. So we picked the Ravensburger Disney Eye Found It to join Mickey and Friends on a magical journey through 12 marvellously illustrated Disney realms, from Radiator Springs to Peter Pan’s Never Land and Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood.
Disney Eye Found It is a hidden picture game that is suitable for one to six players aged four and above. There are over 1,000 hidden treasures to find and with the help of fellow players, race to Cinderella’s castle at the end of the giant 6-foot game board before the hands of the clock reach midnight!
Inside the box, it comes with a 1.8 metre game board (3 pieces join together), 6 playing pieces with stands, 1 spinner, 12 plastic rings, 30 search cards, 1 hourglass and instructions.
This game requires plenty of space for everyone to move around so make sure you have plenty of room to play this (we played on the floor). It also required adult assembly for the clock tower, spinner and playing pieces. It is very straightforward to set up by joining the puzzles together to form the giant game board.
The youngest player begins the game by spinning the spinner. On the spinner, it will show you the number of steps to be taken, hours to move the clock tower’s hand or time to search if it lands on the Mickey Mouse symbol. There are also special features on the board game where you can find the Mickey Mouse symbol or a shorter path.
We all love the Mickey Mouse symbol where we all work together to find the hidden objects. You might think this would be easy but the glorious detail of the game board makes this harder than it appears. It does surprise us what we can find on the game board! We absolutely love the illustrations! Some of the objects we found on the game board might not always look exactly like what is on the card. It is up to your discretion whether you think it is a match.
We all enjoyed this simple and easy to play game. It will be loved by everyone! It didn’t take us too long to play this game which is nice. But I do find that when everyone is busy searching for the objects, we completely forget to check the hourglass. So I’d suggest using a digital timer perhaps on your smartphone for example.
So this National Unplugging Day, we hope you will join us this year to celebrate another fabulous day of tech-free fun. Need some inspiration for what to play? Why not check out the links below for the reviews and to buy them!
