I am a gamer. I love boardgames. Just before having kids my cousin and I used to drag our husbands together to have game night – almost every weekend. Now that we both have kids, it’s hard for us to get together to torture our husbands with games.
Luckily for my husband, he has me to play games with and the most recent game we have had the pleasure of playing together is Pictureka. This is actually a game that I have wanted for quite sometime. A few Christmas ago, I was on the hunt for this game, but it was sold out everywhere. However, thanks to the people at Hasbro, I’ve had the chance to test it out.
This game is a little more in depth then just finding a picture on a game board. There is actually a game that goes along with it. There are 3 sets of coloured cards, each with a different mission. The great part about this game is that it can be played with only 2 players and is still lots of fun. I have played many games with only 2 people and it seems that something is missing. With this game, it’s just as fun with 2 as it would be with more.
My husband and I enjoyed ourselves while playing Pictureka. The time seemed to go by really quick (which is an indication of fun). Next time we pull out this game, I think we are going to make the missions a little longer. Oh yes, and just for the record – I won!
This would be a great family game, even for the younger kids. It’s suggested for kids ages 6+. There is a little bit of reading, such as “find as many things with wheels, or things you can eat”, so as long as your kids can read (or you can read for them), they should be able to play. Each time you play, the 9 board game pieces change spots (or are flipped over), so 2 games will never be alike. This is the 2nd edition to the game, so you can mix and match all 18 pieces for some extra fun.
I’m looking forward to the day that my cousin and I can get together regularly to have our family game nights together – including the kids!
